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 1131th highest place in Ireland. Cashel Hill is the second most westerly summit in the South Connemara area.

Fantastic views.
by paddyhillsbagger  9 Jan 2012
A pleasant little top with rewarding views of the Twelve Bens from the summit. Well worth a visit if you have a spare hour and still some oomph in your legs for a short steep climb. Fantastic views to seaward too. Just follow route described by vanczyz and you can't go wrong. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/947/comment/6652/
