Cashel

4.4
Castles · Ruins · History Museums
A tiny settlement rich in history, Cashel maintains the old-fashioned charm of a small market town. Home to just 3,000 permanent residents, the town remains unspoiled by tourism, offering travelers a blend of natural scenery and cultural heritage. A limestone hill crowned by a group of medieval buildings dominates the landscape, adding to the town's magical feel. This rocky outcrop, where the Kings of Munster lived for several hundred years before the Norman invasion, allegedly came into existence when Saint Patrick banished Satan from a cave in a nearby mountain. After your walk to the breezy hilltop, visit one of Cashel's pubs to meet the locals and hear their stories about the ancient rock. Take stress off the schedule by using our Ireland trip itinerary builder.

Where to stay in Cashel

Backpackers often seek out the hostel in Cashel, while other visitors tend to opt for a traditional bed and breakfast.
