Hore Abbey is just a short walk away from the rock. There is limited parking available also. No charge to visit. Nice quiet place with an impressive view of the nearby Rock of Cashel.

Although we did not walk over here from the Rock of Cashel, you could see it from there. Daunting from the Castle, can't imagine what is is up close. Have to do this next time.

Worth the little side venture to this site while at rock of cashel. You can either walk down (about 15 minutes) or drive. Much less windy and you great a great view of the rock from here.

I'm not typically a "ruins" fan, but we went here late in the afternoon when the Rock of Cashel (opposite) was closing. I found these particular ruins fascinating and beautiful. In fact, I enjoyed them more than the Rock.

The place it's very nice, walking near you can see the cashel on the background. Also, if you are a bit adventurous you can climb over.

These lesser-known ruins are right down the hill from Rock of Cashel. Both are certainly worth visiting, but if you only have time for one I'd actually say visit Hore Abbey. The same ruin feel, look very similar, but at Hore Abbey you're likely to...More

These are beautiful ruins of a Cistercian monastery built in the 13th century. You can see the Rock of Cashel overlooking the ruins which sit in an wide flat grassy field below. There is no admission and you park at the side of the road...More

We visited the Rock and this building can be seen from the grounds. As we had such brilliant weather we walked across the beautiful Irish countryside to see what it was. Historic building, I presume built around the time of the Rock. Mostly ruins but...More

No where to park (although two lucky cars will fit in-front of the entrance gates)...but fun to walk around. I liked all the different rooms and parts of the Abby. Overall I liked this better than Rocks of Cashel.

There is not a parking lot. We just parked on the side of the road next to the gate. You have to walk through a cow pasture on a cement sidewalk to get there. It is well worth the time.
