A spectacular group of Medieval buildings

Rock of Cashel

The Rock of Cashel is an outcrop of limestone in the Golden Vale and was the traditional seat of the kings of Munster for several hundred years prior to the Norman invasion.

Now it comprises a spectacular group of Medieval buildings including the 12th century round tower, High Cross and Romanesque Chapel, 13th century Gothic cathedral, 15th century Castle and the restored Hall of the Vicars Choral.

There is an audio-visual show and exhibitions.
