We enjoyed our morning at the Rock of Cashel. The ruins were beautiful to explore. The film offered gave a nice history of the area. The views of the surrounding area were quite lovely from the vantage point of the rock. Worth a stop.

Rock of Cashel was a great stop on our tour of Ireland. The architecture, history, and views should not be missed. Make sure you walk all the way around outside and inside the church to get the full effect with a guide.

Great place to visit, we actually missed the last tour on our visit but there is information available around the grounds. The site itself is worth the visit alone, so beautiful and stunning views.
