Opw - Cahir Castle




Once the stronghold of the powerful Butler family, the castle retains its impressive keep, tower and much of its original defensive structure. It is one of Ireland's largest and best preserved castles. It is situated on a rocky island on the River Suir.

The castle's attractions include an excellent audio-visual show which informs visitors of all the main sites of the area. There are several exhibitions.
