Cashel

“Cashel of the Kings” is best known for the Rock and this is certainly a must-see if you are in town. It was once the seat of the Kings of Munster and the collection of medieval buildings perched on this limestone outcrop are truly unique. The Brú Ború Centre at the foot of the Rock hosts regular traditional Irish music sessions and audio-visual presentations of Cashel’s history. Cashel’s broad Main Street has plenty of appeal and the former Market House here now serves as the Heritage & Tourist Information Centre. Hore Abbey, St John’s Cathedral and the Dominican Abbey are other markers of Cashel’s ecclesiastical history which are worth a visit.
