County Tipperary Things to Do: 33 reviews and 47 photos


Cahir Castle is one of Ireland's finest and best preserved castles. Originally it was Conor O'Brien, Lord of Thomond, who built a fort here on the banks of the Suir River in the 12th century. This was later used as a basis for further development by one of Ireland's most powerful families, The Butlers, after they had gained ownership of the Castle in the 14th century. Most of the expansion of the castle occured between the 15th and 17th centuries.
The castle is one of Ireland's most visited heritage sites and because of the town's location close to the town of Cashel, it is an easy catch for anyone visiting the mighty Rock of Cashel.
