We thought these castle ruins and their scenic location were very cool. We took a lot of photos as it's very photogenic. One in our group thought this was the highlight of the trip. We listened to a bit of the guided tour, but mostly...More

A visit to the Rock of Cashel is a must if you are in the area. Parking is at the bottom of the hill and it is a bit of a hike up, but well worth the climb. You can opt for a guided tour...More

Sorry for the late review (2years later). Enjoyed a wonder around the castle grounds. Well kept and clean and tidy. Passed a couple of hours on my visit to cashel. Definitely visit again if I’m passing.

Loved this little stop that we found while driving across Ireland. The castle and burial grounds were incredible, most of which I believe are from the 12th century. Unfortunately, we didn't catch a tour because we were short on time, but looking around the grounds...More

Beautiful ruins! The guides do a great job explaining the history! Wear comfortable shoes since you will be walking inside and outside on the grounds. Beautiful views of the countryside!

We visited on a sunny but cold day. The site is high up on a hill and dominates the surrounding countryside. The site itself is quite picturesque with the remaining of the cathedral being the main attraction. There's few items in an indoor museum room....More

I think, because this isn't a traditional castle with floors and tourist areas, etc....this would be a good place for a 3 year old boy to enjoy with supervision. Nothing to break. Nothing to disturb. Plenty of really, cool... More

we purchased 15 euros worth of stuff at the visitor center in town and were given a voucher for 2 adults admission. Don't know if this offer is good for everyday, but we visited on a Tuesday.
