Come for the stone and Castle, but stay for the grounds. It's a lovely place to walk around and enjoy a well-maintained grounds. The sights are some you don't see everyday especially the poison garden which is very informative! The cafe and gift shop offer affordable items to memorialize your visit. Enjoy!
Kiss the Blarney Stone...a must do while visiting Blarney Castle. While the stone is essential the castle gardens are equally stunning and with lots of art installations and smaller displays it s lovely stroll around the area. The scenery and photo opportunities are also worth stopping to enjoy.
