Cahir Castle is well worth a detour off the motorway. A very well preserved Norman Castle. A well preserved keep and extensive curtain wall.

We decided to visit Cahir Castle on the way home from a weekend in Cork. It was literally less than 5 minutes off the M8 motorway. There is a €5 entry fee but the castle grounds has a lot of areas to visit and explore....More

We had Cahir Castle on our visiting plan. Then spontainour decided not to enter. Going round outside gave us enough feeling - yet we saw about 5 to 7 similar places bevor. But what is worthwhile a stroll from there is the Swiss Cottage. That...More

This castle is what comes to mind when you think of a typical medieval castle. It is incredibly well preserved and will allow you to catch a glimpse of an earlier time. Would highly recommend.

This is a nice castle right in the heart of town. We arrived a little early for the tour but it is very easily navigated on your own. Very intact and definitely worth a visit.

We stopped in here at the end of a day driving around the area (Waterford, Vee Drive, etc). There is a pay parking lot right next to the castle which is very convenient. I believe it was 1.2 euro/hour. I think the entrance fee to...More

Wonderful castle with lots of tales to tell. If you have time after touring the castle, take the gorgeous hike along the river to the Swiss Cottage. It will take up about 1.5 hours. We went across the street and had a quick lunch at...More
