    Nice half-day trip from Dublin. No need for an agency,just use the public bus. Can be very windy on that hill, take a coat with you. Come early, crowded after 11am.

    Stricking fortified site sitting dominant over the surrounding countryside. Fine decorative stonework can be found in the 12th century romanesque chapel.

    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.
