Most bus tours drop into Cashel for a few hours. The town itself has a busy main street, authentic store fronts and several distinct pubs. Some designer shops feature on the Main Street, including the Kilkenny Shop. The Rock of Cashel and Hore Abbey are amazing structures and if your family traces from southeast Ireland, you may discover your last name carved into a headstone. If you're interested in really learning about the lay of rural Ireland, it pays to spend a few days in a local B&B because they cost less than similar facilities in Kilkenny or in County Cork. But if you're out for a whirlwind tour of Ireland, walk the Rock, meander through the Abbey, enjoy a light meal and get on your way. Rock lane, Cashel
