Description: View of a tower giving access to a ruined house seen in the background. This is what remains of Ballymount Castle, County Dublin, Ireland, which was built in the seventeenth century by Sir William Parsons.

In the foreground is a man kneeling on the grass, sketching the view, with a gun beside him. On the road leading up to the tower is a man walking beside a pack horse.
