Amazing Views!

Ancient historic site with amazing views of the valley below. Good exhibits. Unfortunately we could not visit the entire complex due to restoration efforts in progress.

Easy to get to from motorway, particularly if traveling coast to coast. Cashel itself is a nice town with lots to see. The Rock and the ruins are beautiful and there is significant renovation underway. We didn't get to see inside because they were in process of removing scafolding, but gave us free admission because of that. Amazing views though,... More

I truly had bad luck with the time to go there. The cathedral and the chapel were closed ( the reason for free admission) so there wasn't too much to see of the castle itself and also the weather was terrible, but still you had a stunning view of the landscape and it's a great photo spot! If I get... More

We visited the Rock of Cashel in Oct. 2016. We arrived shortly after opening time and there were only a few other people there. Definitely worth seeing! The views are amazing!

Stopped in 15 min before closing time. Didn't get to see the inside due to renovations but we were able to walk around inside the gated area and take pictures right at sunset. These were some of the best pics from our trip. The more we moved around, the more incredible pictures we were able to get. Great place to... More

Great place to bring visitors to our shores. It has great views of all of Tipperary as it is on a height which may be a problem for some people as the carpark is a bit away.

I’ve said this before, but, to the few naysayers, if you would just take a little time to research a place before you go, you’ll get a lot more out of it. There’s a reason why a majority of visitors to the Rock of Cashel give it high ratings….and that’s because it’s just plain cool. How anyone could knock this... More

The views were absolutely stunning from the rock, and we took the heritage trail walk past Hore Abbey which was actually even more interesting in our opinion. Just a word of warning, there is scaffolding up on the main building and you cannot enter it for the next six weeks or so due to the scaffolding being taken down. You... More

The old Castle sits atop a hill with good views all around. They have a short film about the place once you pay and enter for a self tour. The Castle is pretty much in ruins but has interesting aspects to explore and see.

The place is well worth a visit if only for the view from the hill on which it sits. Currently the main building is being restore. They allowed us in for free because of this. There are some exhibits in side buildings and you can walk the grounds. The history is interesting.
