The Rock of Cashel was our first destination after leaving Bunratty where we’d had a light lunch of seafood chowder at the excellent Gallagher’s next to the B&B where I’d spent the night previous. Cashel is best known for this huge cathedral, church, tower and castle complex built in the early years of the 12th century and even today, mostly intact. Most remarkable is the tall round tower and the intimate Cormac’s Chapel, the best-preserved Romanesque church in Ireland. The photo above shows the Rock of Cashel in the last rays of the setting sun. (Which sets at about 9:45 at this time of the year in this part of Ireland)
