We stopped here before visiting the church for lunch. The food was very good. We were not there for a show, but to enjoy their food.

It is easy to overlook this centre. Be sure to visit the exhibits that are underground. It is also worth seeing one of the evening musical performances.

We attended one of the nightly music and dance shows and loved it! Didn't expect the more casual, after-show addition, with audience involvement. It was a wonderful and memorable part of our tour through Ireland.

The summer show was the perfect kickoff for our week in Ireland. It was a showcase of Irish music and dance; I would definitely recommend this performance if you are in the Cashel area.
