Rock of Cashel is one of the most iconic images of Ireland – a spectacular complex of medieval buildings upon a limestone outcropping in Tipperary’s Golden Vale. The Rock of Cashel is steeped in mythology. Legend has it that it formed when St. Patrick banished Satan from a cave in Devil’s Bit, the nearby mountain. Prior to the Norman Invasion of Ireland, it was the seat of the Kings of Munster. Most of the buildings that survive today date to the 12th and 13th centuries
