Cahir Castle

The former stronghold of the Butler family, this is one of Ireland’s largest and best preserved medieval castles. This castle evolved from an earthwork known as a motte and bailey to the mighty castle we see today and it has withstood many attacks and sieges. It remained an important residence right up to the 19th century and today it stands overlooking the River Suir and the market town of Cahir in South Tipperary. This audioguide will describe the history and architecture of this fine castle, placing the listener back in the turbulent medieval period.
