Cahir Castle, County Tipperary

(500+ reviews on the web)
Castle Tourist Spot
Standing on an island in the Suir River, Cahir Castle retains much of its structure and defense system, making it one of Ireland's best-preserved castles. Begin your tour with an audio-visual show that gives you an overview of the castle's history and architecture. The video is available in several languages. While the castle was restored in the 19th century, it retains its early design and much of the original material. Walk the walls of the keep and the stairs of the towers in the same way the castle's defenders did centuries ago. A small fee admits you to the museum for a self-guided tour, or join a guided tour group for additional insight into the castle's legends and history. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Cahir Castle by using our Cahir travel itinerary planner.

  • Fantastic place for a visit! A truly beautiful castle which scenic views from all the windows. You are freely allowed to roam around the place but they also offer guided tours. They have a stunning miniature setup in one of the galleries. The grounds outside are beyond beautiful with an abundance of wildlife. Be warned you must bring something to offer to the ducks and geese, it is encouraged to feed them, as written on a sign. We spend a lovely time outside the castle in the grounds which have well kept land and paths. A bridge that allows you to cross the moat into the park. There is a wild flower area and another that encourages wildlife in safe areas. Truly a great place to visit!
  • This is one of the best castles to visit while in Ireland (along with Blarney). The cost is very reasonable, the castle itself is big enough and you get to explore all the rooms. It has artifacts, on display which makes it even more interesting and fun to visit.
  • Slightly off the beaten track so no crowds and an intact example of an old Castle. I was delighted to have found it by chance.
  • A fascinating castle steeped in history. The video you are free to watch is very interesting and gives you all the information you need. The views from the top of the castle are well worth the effort. All this for only €5 absolute bargain.
  • Beautiful castle that is in excellent shape. The staff was very knowledgeable and put on a great tour.
