WELCOME TO CASHEL
Cashel is situated in the Golden Vale, an area of rolling pastureland in South Tipperary in the province of Munster. The ‘City of Kings’ as it became known, was home to the high kings of Munster, who ruled for centuries from the magnificent site of the Rock of Cashel, until the Norman invasion in the 12th century.  Situated overlooking the town and encircling plain, the iconic Rock of Cashel is one of the most spectacular tourist attractions in Ireland and one of the most visited.

THE ROCK OF CASHEL
The Rock of Cashel is a unique heritage site and it is universally recognised as having one of the world’s greatest collections of medieval architecture and Celtic art. This limestone outcrop has the most complete Romanesque church in Ireland, a 13th century Gothic cathedral, a 12th century round tower and an exquisitely restored 15th century Vicars choral. It is here that the original St. Patrick’s cross can be seen.

HISTORIC CASHEL
Cashel’s rich history is reflected in its built heritage from its medieval monasteries and fortified town houses to its newly conserved city walls.  The Georgian quarter boasts both a Georgian Cathedral and the Bolton Library. The Old Town Hall is home to Cashel’s tourist office, where an MP3 player with a multi-lingual audio tour is available to use while exploring the town and its attractions. The Tourist Information Office at the Cashel Heritage Centre also
houses the heritage museum where a replica can be seen of how the town looked in the 1640’s.  Cashel was for centuries a recognised city with a series of original Royal charters dating from the 17th century, which can be viewed in the Heritage Centre. Tel: 062 61333
