Rock of Cashel - Co Tipperary
Located in County Tipperary and only a short five-minute walk from the town of Cashel, the Rock of Cashel is one of Ireland’s most visited attractions and is iconic in its historical significance.
Also known as the Cashel of the Kings, the Rock is regarded as a spectacular archaeological site, and it is home to a very impressive cluster of medieval ecclesiastical buildings and monuments.
With its dramatic setting on an outcrop of limestone, visitors can enjoy beautiful views of the Tipperary countryside and can explore and discover all the Rock’s rich history. According to legend, St. Patrick himself came here to convert King Aenghus to Christianity, and it is also the place where Brian Boru was crowned High King in 978.
Today its well-preserved ruins offer the perfect historical day trip, with guided tours, audio-visual shows, and exhibitions to complete the experience.
