Rock of Cashel
It's huge, it's complex, it's iconic, there is nothing like it anywhere else in the world and it's right here in Cashel at the heart of Tipperary. The Rock of Cashel (Carraig Phádraig), more formally St. Patrick's Rock, it is also known as Cashel of the Kings. Reputedly the site of the conversion of Aenghus the King of Munster by St. Patrick in the 5th century AD. Long before the Norman invasion The Rock of Cashel was the seat of the High Kings of Munster, although there is little structural evidence of their time here. Most of the buildings on the current site date from the 12th and 13th centuries when the rock was gifted to the Church. The buildings represent both Hiberno-Romanseque and Germanic influences in their architecture.

Hoare Abbey
Originally founded in the mid 13th century by the Benedictine Order as St Mary's Abbey of the Rock, the beautiful ruin of Hoare Abbey is Cashel Lodge’s nearest neighbour.
Hoare Abbey has had an eventful life. Only a few years after it was founded, Archbishop David McCarvell violently suppressed the Abbey and handed it over to the Cistercian Order. They say that he had a dream that the Benedictines were about to kill him, though many people doubt the truth of this. The Archbishop was a colourful and controversial character who was frequently summoned to explain his antics to the King of England.
