Wy wife and I will be visiting Ireland this comming June and July. We would likt to see the Rock of Cashel but, unfortunately, we have difficulty in climbing stairs and walking up hills. Is there any way to get up to the castle other than by foot? Is it possible to drive up to the top?

    You might like to contact the site directly, because they can make access arrangements for visitors with disabilities if notified in advance:

    They will certainly be able to advise you about access.

    The best views of the Rock of Cashel are from further away - up close, in my opinion, it's not nearly as impressive. Anyone in the area should be able to point you in the direction of a good viewing spot. It's been a view years since I visited but I think, like most older monuements, there are stairs and uneven floors pretty much everywhere. I agree with the other poster - probably best to contact the site in advance to find out about access.
