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 1130th highest place in Ireland. Cashel Hill is the second most westerly summit in the South Connemara area.

Went up Cashel Hill on last Tuesday 23rd Nov, what a view - 311m is a perfect easy vantage in the middle of Connemara on a crisp crystal clear winter day! FYI, if you don't want to walk the whole way to the cemetery, you can head left at the ruins of a old house in some trees, about half way to the cemetery, only one fence to cross to the top.
