We truly enjoyed this spot on our recent Ireland trip. The guided tour was very informative, although it was difficult to get clear direction on when/where it started. I highly recommend this for the historical value, as well as the beatiful sweeping scenery from atop...More

We walked up the hill to the castle ruin and arrived just in time to join a guided tour. It was very informative and the male guide had a lovely thick Irish accent. He added some humour to his presentation which made it more enjoyable....More

We didn't spend a ton of time here, just enough to walk around the very cool ruins! Beautiful view of the town below. Suggestion- also drive a few minutes over to Hore Abbey, no entrance fee and we were the only humans there!

Absolutely stunning views from the rock of cashel. The buildings at the top are in really good condition and the welcome video is very informative. It's not actually all that big so don't expect to be here for hours but what's there is stunning.

We were less than five minutes late. By my phone time we knocked at 4:48pm. We didn’t want to cut it so close, but we took a wrong turn that ate up 16 minutes. My husband has a bad ankle. We were slow to ascend...More

We took the free tour of the Rock of Cashel and it was most informative. Our tour guide, David, infused humor as well as lots of history and facts to the tour. Did you know that St. Patrick actually did not chase the snakes out...More

In spite of bitter cold and rain, we very much enjoyed the visit to The Rock of Cashel. A very interesting Irish history was illuminated by the guide. Parking was close and easy and they even gave us a student entrance fee.
