You can see the abbey ruins down the hill if you peek through the rock wall at the Rock of Cashel. Just take the path to the right as you exit, and you can walk down the hill and across the road to get to...More

On a whim, we took the exit for Cashel on the way from Limerick back to Dublin (saw the castle sigh). The Abbey is free (nice), has good access and reasonable parking (again it is free) - but it has a fabulous view from the...More

This is just a little walk down the path along the side of Cashel. It is delightfully quiet as most visitors to Cashel often miss it. There is a lovely walk around it and the site is so peaceful it is well worth stretching your...More

Just below the Rock of Cashel in a large open field. Fun to just walk around and check out. Well worth a visit if you are at the Rock.

The ruins are in the middle of a field and are an easy walk from the Rock of Cashel. There are no interpretive signs to give information so you may want to read up on it before visiting. Our visit was brief.

It was great just to walk around the site and explore ourselves. The views of The Rock are great too.

You can see this abbey from the Rock and it provides a very interesting scene as the car’s zip down the road which separates. Before going into the Rock, go left and down a footpath that will lead you there. Not all that popular, it...More

Having visited the Rock of Cashel a few years ago, we decided this time to make a quick stop at Hore Abbey (our B&B was just outside of Cashel, so it wasn't out of our way). Sure glad we did. First of all, if you're...More

There is not a parking lot. We just parked on the side of the road next to the gate. You have to walk through a cow pasture on a cement sidewalk to get there. It is well worth the time.
