    Our meeting time will probably depend on how long it will take everyone to get there? It's about two hours from here, so I'll go along with what suits everyone else.

    Btw I did ring ahead, and as usual with OPW sites there are no restrictions on the use of tripods etc. providing it's not for professional purposes.

    If you saw a man drowning and you could either save him or photograph the event...what kind of film would you use?

    The Rock opens at 9am, so I suggest we be ready, cameras in hand to burst through the door at that time.

    Edit: sorry Sile, you got in before me.

    Some of the best photographs are not taken inside it but in the roads/fields outside, so I'm not too keen on rushing the door at 9

    No problem Peter.. good to know we're all so eager!
    I agree that the best shots seem to be from a bit away. Why don't we meet at the site carpark, then all pile in one/two cars and set off to find a good spot? And by the time we're all good to go ... Catherine should have arrived

    Cafe Hans beside the Rock and Grant, in Kearney Castle hotel on the Main St are I'm told the best spots for caffeine and calories.

    And if we are stopped by the police we can say we are just taking her back to the zoo.

    The Cashel Palace hotel has a very nice restaurant in the basement (Bishops Buttery), which was very nice the last time I was there, as I recall you can also wander from the Garden of the hotel up to/towards the Rock as the hotel used to be the Bishops residence.

    I don't think I'm going to be able to make it to Cashel hope you all have a great time.

    It’s a couple of years since I visited the Rock, but I would recommend that you do go in as soon as it opens because as others have said it gets very busy by about 10am. This is fine if you like people pictures.
    There is a ruined Abbey about half a mile away which will also provide photo opportunities, and a vista of the Rock. There is a footpath from near the Rock entrance, or you can drive there.
    As you come out of the car park there is a row of cottages/shops on the right, one of which is/was a good café with a pleasant garden opposite.
    Apart from that enjoy the day, and do not, whatever you do, save film.
    Regards Dave.
