The Rock of Cashel was a castle and then a monastery. It was built over 1500 years ago and has been added to many times. You can see the changes in the architecture - going from square opening to rounded gothic to the pointed arches...More

This is hallowed ground for Ireland's Christian heritage. Sitting on the top of a hill, the wind whips around the ruins, creating its own microclimate. We started with the introductory film, which provided important background to the importance of this place & some idea how...More

The Rock of Cashel is an important piece of Irish history. Though not as 'museumy' as other sites (few exhibits and artifacts), the ruins, castle, cathedral, and landscape provide a unique and vital sense of place and time in Ireland.

If you want to take nice pictures, try to get here early, before bus loads of people arrive. We were able to take some amazing photos without people in them, but after the busses arrived it was tough to get pics without others in them....More

Impressive ruins of castle and cathedral with a small museum near the entrance and a graveyard form where you have a great view over the surroundings. Within walking distance of Cashel town. Don't miss it when you visit Cashel.

They have regular tours straight after you watch a video about Rock of Cashel. So probably every 30 mins.
