Rock of Cashel, Co. Tipperary

Location: There are several main routes into Cashel (N8 runs N/S right through town and N74 runs NE into it). The Rock of Cashel sits high atop a huge limestone outcropping, towering over the town, so it's hard to miss. There is a spectacular long-distance view of the complex of ruins on the drive down N8 from the north. Because of it's prominent position, it SHOULD be easy to find, but the streets are narrow and windy and the signposts sometimes difficult to see. There is a large carpark at the foot of the Rock. It charges a nominal fee, but within easy walking distance to most everything worth seeing in Cashel, and it's very close to the public restroom and several reasonably priced tearooms with good food. Entry onto the grounds of the Rock of Cashel was 4.40 Euro in 2004. 9 am to at least 4:30 pm daily, year-round. It gets very crowded in the summer months. Heritage Cards are accepted here.
