    Luogo molto suggestivo, vista panoramica sulla campagna intorno.

    One of the best places to visit in Ireland. Not too big, you can see it in a fee. The ticket costs 4, includes a short movie about the history and 20 min tour. You can skip it and wonder on your own.

    Well worth the visit for some spectacular architecture! I regret not taking the long walk to the second castle you can see out back. Scaffolding might be annoying, but restoration is hard work.

    If it's raining you could get quality headgear downhill in the Cashel Woolen Store.

    Major restauration still going on. But it's still worth a visit. The view on the region is splendid.

    A little bit boring. Not realy worth the 6€. Just move on and visit Cahir Castle. It's much more fun.

    Look west, downhill and next to Hore Abbey, to see where Queen Elizabeth landed.

    The scaffolding is required to raise the pigments of frescos in a centurys-old structure.

    Major restoration works going on during Summer 2010. Parts of the complex may be not accessible. Very imposing scaffolding surrounds part of the site
