Lovely B&B. Joan and Rem are very welcoming and the location at the base of the "Rock" is perfect. Lovely, large room with excellent breakfast. Joan shared many great recommendations for sites in Cashel and along the way on our return to Dublin.

Joan and Rem were very accommodating at their Rockside House. We had room 4 which had a double bed and nice bathroom. Although small, it was very comfy and quiet with a partial view of The Rock. It's walking distance to town with many pubs and restaurants. Joan's pancakes were wonderful!

The view at this B & B is amazing. The owner of the home is very welcoming. You have a choice for breakfast that she cooks up wonderfully. You feel right at home . You are located at the base of a castle and not far from other sites.

Lovely home. Joy is friendly and ready to answer your questions. Homemade hot breakfast in the morning. Reasonable priced this time of year. Every room has it's own shower and toilet. Easy access to town.

Literally right on the rock, not even a 3 minute walk up to the castle. From our room you could even see the castle lit up at night. There is not a lot to do in the town itself, but if you are going to stay the night, this is the place to be!

Joy's Rockside House is right around the corner from the rock of Cashel – so the location really is prime. This home is comfortable and cute, and the made-to-order breakfasts are tasty. We love the "porridge" with Bailey's Irish cream! While the location is excellent and the breakfasts tasty, a little attention should be given to the rooms -- the...

“Our room looked right out to the castle on the Rock of Cashel. Out of the other window were 3 lovely sheep. Wonderful. The room itself is very pretty and I love the soft cream and green colors as they are very soothing.”
