Cashel Travel guide
Cashel : Michelin's recommendations
The Rock of Cashel, a 60m limestone outcrop rising out of the Tipperary plain and dedicated to Saint Patrick, is the focal landmark for the town and the surrounding area. It is topped by some of the most magnificent religious ruins in Ireland, outstanding examples of primitive Christian architecture. From around 370 to 1101, the kings of Munster lived on the rock, making Cashel their capital and comparable in importance to Tara, capital of the High Kings of Ireland.
