This is an easy trip from Dublin to Cashel. You should give yourself plenty of time to visit "The Rock of Cashel" without being rushed. When one takes the time to just stand and contemplate the vast history of these sites, it can be well worth it. If one takes the attitude of "if you've seen one ruin you've seen them all", then you miss out. Try to imagine the ruin in it's completed state and be in awe of it's size. Then contemplate the engineering that went into building such architectural sites, remembering how far in the distant past this took place. One word of warning: the chapel area has scaffolding and plastic over it as preservation tasks are being undertaken. This slightly spoils the view... but only for now. It will soon be back to it's "ruin"-ed beauty.
Take the time to walk into Cashel for lunch. It's a lovely town.
