Literally right on the rock, not even a 3 minute walk up to the castle. From our room you could even see the castle lit up at night. There is not a lot to do in the town itself, but if you are going to stay the night, this is the place to be!

This B&B is located right at the base of Cashel Rock. It is literally a 2 to 3 minute walk up the hill to the castle. The B&B is very nice, clean, a good breakfast and a friendly host (Joy). Our room was no frills and small, but clean and quiet. All in all a good place to stay if...

Joy's Rockside House is right around the corner from the rock of Cashel – so the location really is prime. This home is comfortable and cute, and the made-to-order breakfasts are tasty. We love the "porridge" with Bailey's Irish cream! While the location is excellent and the breakfasts tasty, a little attention should be given to the rooms -- the...

My family of 4 recently stayed for 3 nights at Joy's Rockside House, and we couldn't have asked for any place better. It was comfortable, convenient to area attractions, and had excellent food. However, the thing that made it so special was the individual attention we received from our hostess. She made a special point to make hot chocolate when...

I loved my visit to Joy's Rockside House! Joan, the owner, was super friendly and helpful. My brother and I really enjoyed talking with her. The B&B is right at the base of the Rock of Cashel, so you can literally walk there in a couple of minutes.

Can't beat the location of Joy's Rockside House B&B in Cashel, right at the base of the Rock of Cashel itself.
