After many trips to Ireland we eventually made it to Rock of Cashel this trip. And we were so glad we did! Even though the day was damp we didn't let it dampen our spirits. We made the right decision when we booked in to...More

Stumbled on this magnificent location and the Rock. A great walk up and well worth the visit. Spend time in the castle and enjoy the views. Avoid any of the busy tourist slots but choose the time when the car park is empty of coaches.

Beautiful Castle...on a beautiful location. Love the local story that ties the Devil’s bit and the “rock” of Cashel together. And make sure to look out to into the fields, where you can see more beautiful ruins...

Strongly recommend a visit if you are in the area. Worth paying to visit the chapel and join the guided tour. Majestic building in a wonderful setting. It helps that we had blue sky on the Land of Perpetual Winter.

Just heading up from Cahir castle wasn’t sure what to expect. While this place is more run down it’s also from the 1100’s, so it’s all good. The history of this place is nuts so take the tour to learn about it. Takes about 90...More

The Rock of Cashel church is in ruin but the restoration of the supporting buildings gives a strong impression the place in its active days. The location on the top of a craggy rock has a commanding view of the surrounding countryside. All of the...More

The views of the countryside from the rock are amazing! The church tour was worth a few extra euro. The tour guide for both the church and general tours were excellent. My teenage boys loved it too. Much visit the abbey ruins at the bottom...More
