Your first stop will be at the world famous Rock of Cashel in County Tipperary. This is one of Ireland's most evocative sites and offers a chance to stroll in the footsteps of St. Patrick flanked by ruins, Celtic crosses, and round towers.
The Rock of Cashel was the traditional seat of the Kings of Munster until they donated the complex to the Catholic Church almost 1,000 years ago for use as a cathedral. One of the best examples of medieval architecture anywhere in Europe.
