Rock of Cashel (irski: Carraig Phádraig, na engleskom "Cashelska stijena"), isto tako poznat kao Cashel of the Kings oi St. Patrick's Rock (Stijena Svetog Patrika), je lokalitet u irskoj provinciji Munster, smješten kraj Cashela u Južnom Tipperaryju, poznat po brojnim historijskim spomenicima.

Prema predaji, Cashel je mjesto na kome je Sv. Patrick pokrstio kralja Munstera u 5. vijeku. Rock of Cashel je nekoliko vijekova bilo tradicionalno sjedište kraljeva Munstera prije normanske invazije. Međutim, malo je artefakata iz tog perioda; najviše zgrada datira iz 12. i 13. vijeka. Usprkos toga, smatra se jednim od najživopisnijih lokaliteta koji pružaju uvid u keltsku umjetnost i srednjovjekovnu arhitekturu.

Prema lokalnoj mitologiji, Rock of Cashel je nastao od Devil's Bita, planine udaljene 30 km sjeverno od Cashela gdje je sv. Patrik otjerao Satanu iz pećine, a zbog čega se stijena (Rock) spustila u Cashel.

Look west, downhill and next to Hore Abbey, to see where Queen Elizabeth landed.
