The spiral staircase in Killahara is in its original form and in excellent
condition. Unusually, it has a hand rail. Movement between levels is
therefore relatively easy. Nevertheless it is an ancient stone structure
spanning 5 levels and there are various common-sense safety precautions
that guests are asked to observe in relation to the stairs as well
as doorways and passageways.
