One of the largest castles in Ireland, the Cahir Castle is also one of the prettiest. One of the things we loved the most about this castle is the lack of crowds. It isn’t as notorious with tourists as some of Ireland’s other castles (the Rock of Cashel is just 30 minutes away), so you rarely have to battle large crowds to get access to parts of the castle or have to wait for people to clear to get good pictures.
One of the more amazing castles that we got to see in Ireland was the Dunluce Castle in Northern Ireland. The castle itself has seen better days, as you can see by the pictures, but the location where the castle was built is absolutely breathtaking. Talk about your prime real-estate.
