It was a nice place to stop in after walking around the Rock. We visited the gift shop, used restrooms, and grabbed some tea and snacks so we did not have to interrupt our touring for day. It is right off parking lot.

My wife and I strolled over to the center after visiting The ROC. It is a pristine, beautiful place worth the time. The gift shop is first rate and the staff are helpful. The concert season must be the toast of Cashel, but we arrived too late in the season to partake.

We stopped here on our way to the Rock of Cashel (they share a parking lot), and we were delighted with what we found. If you visit Bru Boru's website, it seems like a performance center. It is, but it is so very much more. Don't wait to visit until a performance is scheduled (although we would have loved to... More

We stopped at the castle on a tour and ate at the cultural centre and shopped in the gift shop. One of the salespeople went into the storage area to find the name of my girlfriend so I can give her the crest info for her name. Also bought beautiful celtic symbol ornaments - celtic love and céad míle fáilte.... More

After touring the castle, my party retreated to this wonderful museum of music and dance before having a delightful lunch. Sadly, we were not here during any live performances. The museum provided a timeline of ancient music history with reproduction horns and displays. The auditorium featured a brief film. Lunch was provided for my group in the dining hall which... More

We went to see a show which was recommended to us by 10 different people in 10 different cities in Ireland. It was the best experience we had of our entire trip. It was worth every cent we spent. I loved the original Irish music and dance. Afterwards we could enjoy an extra (free) performance in the bar.

On a recent visit to Cashel, a friend and I attended the show. The performers were excellent. Cast is multi-generational, some playing more the one instrument, dancing and singing as well. A wonderful evening. It would have helped to have a written program or emcee to provide more information about the performance.

Great show of Irish music and dance. Musicians, singers and dancers were excellent. Small venue makes for great seating. We even stayed for the after show with tea and bread. We really enjoyed every bit of it. There is a small museum of Irish instruments and a gift show.

My husband and I went to the concert last night and thoroughly enjoyed it. There was a good balance of traditional Irish dancing, instrumental and singing. We booked and paid online @€20 pp ( I noticed someone said tickets were €10, perhaps they got a concession) After the concert, the audience were invited to have a cup of tea and... More
