Blarney Castle built almost six hundred years ago by Cormac MacCarthy, one of Ireland’s most renowned chieftainsis and home to the Blarney Stone. This legendary Stone of Eloquence, at the top of the Tower, has been kissed by everyone from Sir Walter Scott to American presidents, world leaders, and entertainers, in hopes they'd never again be lost for words. Also here are beautiful gardens around Rock Close.
Blarney Village is located just five miles northwest of Cork. For bus service see BusEireann
