The Rock of Cashel & Athassel Priory

within 30 milesThe last seat of the high kings of Munster, the Rock of Cashel is a spectacular group of medieval buildings on an outcrop of limestone. Perched above Ireland’s fertile Golden Vale, the site includes a round tower, Romanesque chapel, cathedral, and restored hall of the Vicars Choral. Nearby Bru Boru Heritage Centre celebrates Irish music, dance, and storytelling through art exhibits, a shop, and live shows.

Once the largest medieval priory in Ireland, Athassel offers a maze of old buildings you can freely explore. A visit here will require climbing stiles built into the wall.
