Fortress of the Fishery

Situated on a rocky island on the River Suir, Cahir Castle is one of the largest and best preserved castles in Ireland. It was originally built in the 13th Century on the site on an earlier Irish cathair. The full form of the placename in Irish is Cathair Dhun Iascaigh, which could be translated as the "stone fort of the fortress of the fishery".
