Tap into the power of Irish legends at the famous Blarney Castle, renowned for its legendary Blarney Stone. The Blarney Castle was built 600 years ago by one of Ireland’s greatest chieftains, Cormac McCarthy. Enjoy a stroll along the castle’s charming footpath, listening to the sound of a stream and the wind in the trees. Climb a steep spiral staircase, where you’ll find the world-famous Blarney Stone. Legends say that the Blarney Stone grants anyone who kisses it the power of eloquence. Kiss the stone and harness the power of this Irish legend. Admire breathtaking views of the lush green Irish countryside, the Blarney House, and the village of Blarney from atop the castle. Afterward, make your way to the Blarney Woollen Mills shopping complex. Built in 1824, the Blarney Woollen Mills was originally a water-powered mill producing tweeds.
