We made a stop at Rock of Cashel as part of an organized tour. A few hours was plenty for our group of 2 adults and 3 teens. Beautiful views of the surrounding countryside.

This is a must stop. Although it is essentially a shell now it is absolutely beautiful and full of history. The views are incredible.

Wonderful historic castle. The tour was good but felt a little long. Was a bit muddy as it was raining but otherwise very enjoyable.
