Rock of Cashel

Family, International, Ireland

To say that we were totally unprepared for the deep history of St Patrick’s Rock is quite an understatement. We opted to not take a guided tour, and looking at the size of the tour groups, we didn’t regret it, but we found so few interpretive signs that we relied upon what we knew of Irish history and family history to play through possible scenarios. Mostly we gloried in the ancient architecture, the commanding views of the Tipperary countryside, the gloriously blue sky and the gentle breezes of a summer afternoon in Ireland! We all agreed that this could be a wonderful place to return to for a longer stay, but not in peak season. We had to scurry back to the car park, for our time was quickly running out but we split up and one of us returned to Grogan’s for some take away tea but more importantly to say a huge thank you and to promise to return!
