Cahir

Cahir Castle, an imposing centre river structure, largely 15th century, was the state-of-the-art defensive castle of its day. Fully restored, it offers a guide service and a splendid audio visual presentation. Limited access for persons with disability. Also close to Cahir town is the Swiss Cottage, a superb example of an early 19th century "cottage orne". It is picturesquely situated on an elevated site with access by stone steps. Built by Richard Lord Cahir in 1812, it was designed by John Nash, well known Regency Architect who designed Brighton Pavilion, Regent Street, London and Saint Paul's Cathedral in Cahir. (Cahir - meaning The Stone Fort of the Dun of the Fish).
