Discover the legend of the Rock of Cashel and Cahir Castle while immersing yourself in the serene beauty of the Irish countryside.


Leave Cork behind and travel north to picturesque Tipperary. It is Ireland’s largest inland county, with breathtaking scenery in its hills and mountains, its plains and river valleys and is renowned for its rich pasturelands which boast the best Irish dairy products. Rich in ancient heritage, Tipperary was once the home to Ireland’s High Kings.


Before you reach the town of Cashel, the rock that bears its name appears on the skyline, rearing up from the landscape in a series of limestone ridges and topped by the serenely beautiful Cathedral of St. Patrick. Visit the Rock of Cashel, an impressive pre-Christian settlement. Enjoy lunch in a restaurant nearby. Travel to Cahir, located on the River Suir to visit Cahir Castle. Rooms in the keep are whitewashed and contain armor displays and period furnishings from the 16th and 17th centuries.


The scenic return route climbs in a zigzag course to the gap, with a series of magnificent views and descends into County Waterford and on to Cobh.
