Blarney Castle & Gardens

At the summit of this 15th century castle lies the world famous Blarney Stone. Legend has it those who kiss the stone will receive "The Gift of the Gab" - eloquence and charm! The lesser known Poison Garden features a collection of deadly and dangerous plants from around the world, while the Rock Close and numerous outdoor statues and artworks inspire a broader view of history. As well as this, you will stumble upon a fern garden with the atmosphere of a tropical jungle deep in the woods. The castle is a short bus journey or drive from Cork City and one of Ireland's most iconic landmarks.
