Cashel, Co. Tipperary

Cashel (Irish: Caiseal Mumhan, meaning Stone Fortress of Munster) is a town in County Tipperary.
Cashel is particularly renowned for the Rock of Cashel, a site hosting a ruined church and fortifications, formerly the seat of the Irish kings of Munster.

King Cormac built his superb Royal Chapel in the 12th century and it is now one of the remarkable buildings to be seen on the Rock. Nearby were Cistercian, Dominican and Franciscan abbeys, two of which may still be viewed.

A visit to Cashel must include the town to experience and understand the historical reationship between the Rock and the town. Cashel City Hall will be your first port of call wherein you can turn the key to the rich heritage in Cashel such as the archaeology, fine architecture, fascinating history and folklore of this remarkable town. The Heritage Centre, located on Main Street, Cashel, will provide the visitor with a series of changing exhibitions, and a model of Cashel in 1640's. A unique collection from the house of the MacCarthy Mor is a rare gem in this centre.
