Cashel and the famous Rock of Cashel is one of Ireland's most important historical sites. The starne shaped rock with the ruins on top of it and Cormac's chapel are the major attractions. Just downhill from the Rock lies the ruins of Hoare Abbey from the 13th century.

The main bus route between Cork and Dublin runs through Cashel several times a day. The most frequent bus service comes from Waterford with a bus change at Cahir. The town has two hostels so it is possible to spend the night here, but it is not necessary.

However, if you do spend the night here, make sure to take in a pint at the wonderful local pub Fox's. It is a brilliant good time and the craic is grand. Do not go for traditional music, as more than likely you will find rowdy conversation or karoake, but nonetheless you will be welcomed and have a great evening.

The best restaurant in Tipperary is Chez Hans, located directly under the eastern approach to the Rock of Cashel. Besides that upmarket venue, you can find Chinese, Indian, Italian and traditional Irish food throughout the town. The earliest meals start just before 8AM and the latest hot food in town is Chinese.
