Very interesting place. We were lucky to be the only two people there at the time. We were able to explore and take photos without interruption. If you are in the area to see the Rick of Cashel be sure to visit the Abbey.

It is worth the short walk from the Rock. All the green makes it really "pop" in photos & in person!! You also have more views of The Rock of Cashel, which is nice.
