We throughly enjoyed exploring around the Abbey. Well worth a visit and more exciting for young kids than the neighbouring Rock Of Cashel. Stunning views of the rock from the Abbey too!

An old abbey a short walk across the fields from the Rock of Cashel and giving lovely views back over the Rock. Worth the extra bit of a walk and a nice contrast to the busy Rock. A good spot to sit in peace and...More

We viewed Hore Abbey from the rock of Cashel. but didn't go there. As ruins go, it appeared to be average, which is still awe inspiring. Most ruins are missing the roof, since they were made of wood.

If you have taken the time to visit The Rock, then take a few minutes to go over to the Abbey. You can either walk or drive over to it. It is free, and worth the time to see it.

We tooka stroll to the abbey and absolutely loved it, great for taking some photos if you're into gravestones and decaying buildings as I am and also a good opportunity to take a couple of pics of the rock of cashel. Must-see!
