This was a beautiful and well cared for site. We were able to walk around the grounds and view the castle. Lots of people were having picnics and enjoying the scenery. We spent several hours enjoying the views and the character of the place.

If you want to understand Ireland and the Irish people, you must visit The Rock of Cashel. Here is where Irish Kings ruled, where St. Patrick converted the King to Christianity, and where Oliver Cromwell's army had their most brutal massacre. Make sure you have...More

We opted to park at the car park in town It was far less congested and easier to get in and out of. I don’t believe it took credit cards.
