Trip Planner: Europe / Ireland / Province of Munster / County Tipperary / Cahir Castle
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 Cahir vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Cahir day trip tool.

There’s so much to explore here, it’s so intriguing and very exciting. I would highly recommend visiting here as it’s one of the most beautiful castles I’ve ever visited! We didn’t do the guided tour as I had kids with me, but some of the information we overheard was very interesting. Be prepared for loads of stairs. Toilets on site.
We loved exploring the grounds and buildings, and learning the history. (Gotta say we appreciated the modern toilet availability though.) It was fun checking out the buildings and carefully taking all the stairs. Be careful of low doorways too! Amazing architecture; quite a history lesson.
Loved this little town of Cahir , so quaint with amazing scenery The castle is very well preserved and in a beautiful setting next to a big park and stream. Many geese were present basking in the sun . The high walls around the castle make it quite daunting but it's as if it belongs there. Parking is available and a few vendors are on site for an early morning coffee or snack. Bathrooms are also available in the car park
I love this castle. Very well looked after and lovely staff. There are lovely walks just past the castle. Lots of geese just walking around. A great day out especially when the weather is good.
