This is fun to do just to do it. You have to overcome the angle at which you are put at to kiss it and overcome any germ issues you might have. We came right after a good rain so we can pretend it was...More

There were over 125 narrow steps to get to the Blarney Stone. Some people were obviously rather foolish to attempt the climb since there was no turning back. I went up but did not bother kissing the Blarney stone, just wanting to take photos and...More

After climbing some really narrow, winding, darkly lit stairs you arrive to the top of the Blarney Castle. From this height you are able to get a great view of the grounds. As you walk around taking in the views is when you will find...More

The story "kiss the stone" should be called "brake your backbone". But the park has two very nice place : fairy garden and fern tree garden. You have to see them. The castle does not teache you anything and the main house was closed.

You can view the castle from the grounds, but I am fairly sure the only way to view the interior is to stand in line to kiss the stone.
