The Rock of Cashel consists of ancient fortifications atop a huge limestone rock. The word Cashel is derived from the Irish for fortress. For more than a thousand years it was the base of kings and religious leaders who ruled over the area, having been chosen as a base by the E?ghanachta clan from Wales in the 4th Century.
You enter through the Hall of the Vicars Choral which contains St Patricks Cross, and then can enter the now roofless Cathedral, the round tower and Cormacs Chapel which is still completely intact despite having been built from 1127..
