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 1128th highest summit in Ireland. Cashel Hill is the second most westerly summit in the South Connemara area.

Access info.
by vanczyz  6 Jul 2010
Access is really easy. On the left hand side of the church behind the gate there is a nice easy road that takes you up to the old cemetery. You might leave your bicycle at the start or take it with you to the end of this road. This walk on foot takes 10/15 minutes. From the cemetery to the hill, the way is also easy. It is unmarked, but this is not a problem, as there is no other hill around ;). After maybe 30 minutes you can reach the top. I've just come back from there. Really nice views: Twelve Pins, Maumturk Mnts and south Connemara. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/947/comment/5923/
