Here groups can explore the Hall of Vicars, Cormack’s Chapel, the Celtic Cathedral, Round Tower and the surrounding gournds filled with ancient high crosses. The Rock of Cashel is is of huge historical importance because it was the seat of the King of Munster.

Afterwards groups will visit the Blarney Castle, famous for the Blarney Stone, which guarantees a person to become a smooth talker when they kiss it!
