This imposing 15th-century castle was long a military stronghold.

Cahir Castle itself is gorgeous and definitely worth stopping in. The castle has so much history and is very well kept. You'll also get great views of the very cute town. If you can, spring for the tour- it is worth paying a nominal fee....More

After a frustrating day negotiating towns in our motorhome we just loved our visit to this Castle. The Memorial Gardens, in particular, were very nice.

Absolutely beautiful castle. I advise everybody to visit it to walk through narrow corridors, to use the narrow stairs, to feel like people lived in castles in medieval time. Great experience, everything so real.

Excellent castle to visit, the kids enjoyed walking through the rooms and spiral stairs to explore the castle. The castle is well maintained and so the rooms have character. You can take a walk to the Swiss Cottage from the castle.

Definitely one of the castles in Ireland to visit. Second time visiting. When travelling either to or from Rock of Cashel to see both in the same day. Not that far of a drive between them.

This grand old castle is an amazing place to visit. It was not restored but that is part of its charm. The castle personnel give a great tour. It was very informative. It is well worth your time to stop at the Cahir Castle.
