Standing on an island in the Suir River, Cahir Castle retains much of its structure and defense system, making it one of Ireland's best-preserved castles. Begin your tour with an audio-visual show that gives you an overview of the castle's history and architecture. The video is available in several languages. While the castle was restored in the 19th century, it retains its early design and much of the original material. Walk the walls of the keep and the stairs of the towers in the same way the castle's defenders did centuries ago. A small fee admits you to the museum for a self-guided tour, or join a guided tour group for additional insight into the castle's legends and history. Make Cahir Castle a centerpiece of your County Tipperary vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our County Tipperary day trip tool .

This is one of the most impressive castles I have seen to date. Built right on the waterway with cannon ball holes still in the wall, it is mighty impressive. Make sure you allow at least 2 hours to take it all in. There is a lovely walk along the water that leads to an old hidden cottage in the woods that you cannot see until you walk through the old stone entry.
Beautiful walk to the Swiss cottage. Lovely wildlife around the river suit & castle. Well worth a visit.
