Medieval Blarney Castle towers above the village of Blarney with its majestic oblong keep, imposing battlements, extensive gardens and interesting rock formations like Druid's Circle and Witch's Cave. Climb to the top and lean back over a sheer drop to kiss the famous Blarney Stone – you’ll be rewarded with the gift of eloquence. Fortify yourself with an Irish coffee, then browse through the Blarney Woollen Mills heritage shop, with the finest Waterford crystal, Donegal tweed and Celtic jewellery. Discover the charms of Cork on a short panoramic drive and enjoy beautiful landscapes of rivers, fields and hedgerows as you travel along country roads to Cobh.
