Cashel / An Caiseal is the name of a settlement south of the hill, and also a townland. The townland is named from the earth- and stone-banked 'ringfort' or cashel surrounding the old cemetery in Caiseal Ard / High Cashel. This is probably an Early Christian religious site (TR, 72). Walks: for a route to the summit from the SW, see Whilde & Simms, New Irish Walk Guide - West and North, 30.   Cashel Hill is the 1129th highest summit in Ireland. Cashel Hill is the second most westerly summit in the South Connemara area.

Connemara in the Sun
Short Summary created by liz50, Buny Clare,  27 Mar 2017
Climbed on Tuesday 07th June , 2 hrs 45min return. I went up the track from the road after the entrance to Cashel House Hotel and just before the church L80303 42385 A. Walked past the graveyard and through 2
gates to L80749 43076 B and walked around the base of the hill to the South Side I actually went too far south as it was not necessary , the southern side is more challenging . Great views of the Bens and Mamturks.
I did not return the same way and came all the way down the South side directly to the gardens of the Castle House Hotel. Before the Hotel grounds , I was delayed for 10 mins looking for a gate in order to avoid having the climb the stone wall. I would say it could be a very wet boggy walk in normal weather but the recent long dry weather made it easy on the foot. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/947/comment/5706/
