For those wishing to kiss the stone, this is the place. BUT, the stone is all the way on the top. There is a winding, narrow .... very tight spaced twisting staircase leading to that top .... wow. The top feels quite high up once there ... 8-9 stories perhaps. There is a hole in the floor and wall up there, you can see the depth below through the whole and you must turn, lay on your back lean out over the hole and hold on for dear life, just to give the un-cleaned smooch stone a kiss. Then make you way down ... a different way. It is one-way up and one-way down. No turning back. A great view from the top, however. The grounds around the castle are beautiful. Just like it should be for a special place for fairies and leprechauns to play.

Beautiful point of view on this famous castle. You had a very nice light that makes the colours very beautiful.

Attractive setting for the stereotypical Blarney Stone, within the gothic huge castle, surrounded by lush garden landscaping.
Thanks for sharing,
