This is the most visited heritage site in Ireland. The property is within walking distance of the Rock of Cashel which was the seat of the Kings of Munster and Medieval Bishops for 900 years. It was where Brian Boru was crowned King of Munster in 977 and he then became the High King of Ireland in 1003. HISTORY: Georgian home constructed in 1710. During 1830's and 1840's Hill House was home to Rev.Dean James McDonnell who fought a campaign against landlordism and injustice during the Irish Famine. This priest entertained Daniel O'Connell, The Liberator, who held one of his Monster Rallies in Cashel in 1846 with the objective of repealing the Act of Union. Between 1848 - 1883 Hill House was home to Honourable Martin Joseph French, who helped suppress the Young Irelander Rebellion of 1848 and the Fenian Rising in 1867. Hill House has evidence of some windows being boarded up. This dates back to the Window Tax in the mid 1700's when owners tried to reduce the number of windows and so reduce the tax!
