  • Bernard was the kindest host, giving us a thorough tour of his private, family-owned museum. The artifacts and history stories he had were incredible, and I would recommend this museum to anyone. He helped us find our family crest. A beautiful way to get to know Ireland.
  • Excellent display and commentary of Irish history. Brilliant authentic collection of equipment in the museum.
  • Fascinating museum. Privately run by Bernard who has lived in Cashel all his life and brings the history of the area to life. Don't miss the story of the bog butter. Wonderful artefacts and rooms focussed on Irish history including the 1916 uprising, potato famine etc.
  • Visited with my wife just recently. Wonderful short "history lesson" The Guide (Bernard) was excellent...a mine of information !
  • Excellent tour guide and beautiful displays and very informative. Pleasant seating area. Packed it history stories and artefacts.

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. If you're looking for a place from which to explore the town's medieval castle grounds, opt for accommodations in the heart of the town itself. You'll find several old guesthouses in the historical city center, and some hotels in this area offer real architectural intrigue. You can also get in touch with your outdoorsy side by pitching a tent at one of the local campgrounds.
