We recently visited The Rock of Cashel and really enjoyed the experience. We took the guided tour and learned so much about its history. The views from The Rock are spectacular.

trooper92 reviewer mentioned they preferred to walk around it : a good suggestion, but if you have the means one should also enter and visit the ruins. It is an impressive place. Maybe try to avoid peak hours.

We opted to park at the car park in town It was far less congested and easier to get in and out of. I don’t believe it took credit cards.
