Cahir castle is a fine example of Irish medieval architecture. It is set on the river Suir which runs around on all sides. There are many restored rooms , towers and nooks to explore. It is well worth a visit. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly.

An absolute MUST that we almost missed! A very nice girl in a wool shop in Cashel mentioned this castle and we were so shocked that it wasn't in the guide books! There are so many little surprises in this treasure, like the tiny winding passages and stairwells that lead to secret little rooms which are normally blocked off in other castles. Also it has two cannon balls still stuck in the walls! Just remember that you'll want more time there than you've probably set aside... and you might want to remember to duck in some of those passages :)

Visited as a side visit from Kilkenny on the way to Blarney and am so happy we did. A great place to walk along the river, the castle itself is amazing and as a guest you are allowed exceptional access to all those winding corridors that other places have blocked off. My husband and I could have easily stayed all day but unfortunately were on tight constructs to get to Blarney so we would have time to visit it before it closed at 6 pm. Had I known how lovely the castle, grounds, and surrounding town were I would have planned an extra day to enjoy this spectacular place. It is not to be missed as an adult and even more so if you have kids as they will love exploring the tight spaces.
