Summary of “Blarney & A Kiss”


So you’ve heard all about it! Famous worldwide and here you are, a stone throw away from touching, feeling, and dare I say… kissing it. Of course, when you do decide to kiss it, you and your companions will have to suffer the consequence. The gift of the gab!

Legend has it that the stone was a piece of the “Stone of Scene” which was gifted by Robert the Bruce in gratitude for Cormac McCarthy’s aid in the Battle of Bannockburn. The Castle and the House are both worth exploring and there is a good opportunity to wander around the gardens. The current castle built by Cormac McCarthy in 1446 is a jewel and withstood many a battle in Irish History.

Ladies don’t despair…climbing the stairs does have its reward especially when they eventually lead to the Blarney Woollen Mills. The Count’s most famous store for everything Irish.

I’ll stop talking now…
