Cashel is a small seaside village on the shores of the Atlantic. It's surrounded by all the wild and wonderful scenery of County Galway's Connemara district, on Ireland's west coast. Anyone with the will and the energy to climb Cashel Hill will be rewarded with unforgettable views of the ocean, the islands, the bays, the beaches, the mountains, the lakes, the rivers and the endless miles of natural landscape. Close to the top of Cashel Hill is a megalithic tomb close to 4,000 years old. Lower down the hillside, in a graveyard, is a ring fort, an early Christian settlement with an ancient burial ground, a holy well and the remains of various buildings, giving the settlement its name of Cashel, from the Irish for "fort". Truly, this is a charming village where the locals carry on age-old traditions, working with nature to farm the hills, cut turf, collect seaweed from the coves and breed the famous Connemara ponies. The award-winning Cashel House Hotel runs a stud farm and organises riding for visitors along with golf, fishing, tennis and exhilarating walking tours. This 19th Century country-house hotel, a travellers' favourite, is set in beautiful gardens and woodland, with a private beach.
