Did You Know?

Named after a local legend, the spectacular Devil’s Bit Mountain does not disappoint. According to local legend, the mountain got its name because the Devil took a bite out of it one day in a fit of anger. They say the bite the Devil took made this gap that can be seen today. The story goes that the lump he bit off fell nearby to form the Rock of Cashel. Fact or fiction?

Why don’t you judge for yourself? Make a trip to this famous landmark, the Devil’s Bit and take in the looped walk while you are there.
