Living in the next village to Cashel, I drive by this wonderful location almost daily and I am always taken back by its beauty . This iconic site here in County Tipperary just has to be seen to be truly appreciated . There are thousands of images online and of course in travel literature. However when seen in reality, it just takes your breath away.. The light in Ireland varies from hour to hour, almost minute to minute. So, each time you see the Rock', it is bathed in light that never repeats. Perhaps the exception is on grey days when cloud cover is flat and non directional.. In my opinion dawn and dusk are the times when this Gem really impresses. As can be seen from the above photo taken a few evenings ago, the Rock of Cashel seems so mythical and magical at the same time. It is lit at night, sometimes in different colours to represent a relevant date or charity perhaps... , the picture says a thousand words. Very little post editing was done with this image as the light was amazing. The last remnants of the day's light lit the skies from the west causing golden skies mixed with the cloud layers. Taken about 20 minutes after sunset . Wondering the history of this place going back to the 5th century site of the Kings of Munster and later coming into shape during the 13th century one can only imagine the scene back then in the mists of time. So I recommend that when you get to visit Ireland and region of Munster in the South, do make a point of coming to Cashel, County Tipperary and the Rock of Cashel.
