And it was flooded... (nothing can be done about that) This was something I had identify before hitting Ireland as a place I wanted to see, Its not far off the motorway luckily and even with it being closed its impressive to see in astride the river in the center of town.

An interesting, relaxed castle to visit where you can roam at will. Lovely views of the town and river - and it's a nice little town. Well worth a visit.

Doesn't take long to see through the castle. The turret is closed so no good views out over the town. Since we did not have a guided tour, we never found out about the history which may have provided some context to what we saw. When compared to other castles (Bunratty and Blarney) it is just not as exciting. Not... More

Cahir castle is one of my favourite castles. Nowadays most of the castles are either ruins or very modern reconstruction filled with replica furnitures so I prefer almost empty (but authentic) rooms than a collection of items bought from eBay. This castle is a good size and it can keep you busy for over an hour. You can walk almost... More

This was a short visit for us. It was off season so not many people. I think we saw maybe a handful while there. Amazing how you find these places sitting within towns and maintained so well. It is worth a stop. We were able to stop and take it all in since it wasn't full of people. The ladies... More

One of the most beautiful castle in Ireland. For only 4 Euro ticket it is possible find out many rooms of the castle. There are a car park near the castle but it isn't free. The view of the castle from outside is very amazing and inside is very well preserved.

I had a visitor from England to stay with me in September. I thought that Cahir castle would be a nice place to visit and close to home. It is well worth the entry ticket of €4. The gentleman giving the history of the castle was funny, entertaining and knowledgeable. I was pleasantly surprised how much I also enjoyed this... More

This is a superb place to visit. We were very fortunate to have the services of a guide which adds to the interest. The castle itself is amazingly well preserved and contains many original features and many pieces of period furniture to give visitors an impression of how it might have looked. There is an impressive rather fearsome portcullis to... More
