This is a great place to stop for lunch when visiting The Rock of Cashel. The Rockhouse is very popular with visiting tour groups and can get quite busy during lunch time, especially during the summer, but don`t let that put you off this place.

After a cold and blustery walk of the Rock of Cashel Church, we found this haven from the cold and an amazing lunch. The chef came and visited with us. We loved the Potato-Leek soup and their signature Sheperd's Pie. We were a large group and they fed us all in a timely manner. When I think of my visit... More

We were so hungry and glad to find that Rockhouse was open for lunch. We found it only because we were parked in the lot for the Rock of Cashel and there was a small path from the parking lot to the restaurant. We followed the signs upstairs and found the wonderful smells of a buffet. You can eat the... More

Staff was friendly and helpful. The buffet food was very good considering how empty the restaurant was. Irish stew, fried chicken and Shepard pie very good. Mashed and vegetables a little stale. Happy we pulled off the motorway to rest and found both the castle and rock house.

I visited the restaurant just a few days ago. The cutlery was so dirty, the glass as well and the tables as well as the chairs were full of crumbles from the previous guests.
