The Republic of Ireland is bound to the west by the Atlantic Ocean, to the east is the Irish Sea which reconnects to the ocean via the southwest with St. George's Channel and the Celtic Sea. The Republic of Ireland has 26 counties, and five cities — Dublin, Cork, Galway, Limerick, and Waterford. The west-coast of Ireland features cliffs, hills and low mountains. The centre of the country is flat with large areas of bogland. We hope you enjoy your stay and find your ideal accommodation from our list of Cashel hotels.

Cashel is a town in County Tipperary, in the southern midlands of Ireland. The town is particularly renowned for the Rock of Cashel, a site hosting a ruined church and fortifications, formerly the seat of the Irish kings of Munster. The 28 meter round tower of Cashel stands high above the plain of Tipperary against the backdrop of the Galtee mountains. While the tower dates from the 11th century, the rock outcrop upon which it stands has fortifications from the early 4th century. The town of Cashel is just off the N8 route from Dublin to Cork.
