The place was very busy by the time we got there. Lots of tour buses and private tourists. The parking lot was open and free (looked like it normally is a pay parking area). The castle ruins sit atop a hill with magnificent views. There...More

We spent several hours exploring the ROK. We took the tour and then explored the grounds on our own. This is an incredible site and was one of the highlights of our trip.

I have been here before but this time I was very impressed with how well it's been maintained. It's not the fancy grandeur but steeped in history no less. Go very late afternoon and you can avoid paying for parking.

The rock of Cashel is definitely the top sight and I would recommend going on a tour to have a look around. Our guide was very good so it's worth it. You have a great view as well.

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