Rock of Cashel - Carraig Phádraig

This is the traditional seat of the kings of Munster and reputedly the place where the Kings of Munster were converted to Christianity by St Patrick in the fifth century. Although the site was the seat of the kings for hundreds of years before the Norman invasion, most of the remains date from the twelfth and thirteenth century. Earlier buildings on the site include the late eleventh-early twelfth century round tower and chapel of King Cormac Mac Carthaigh. The castle is open to the public.
