Blarney Castle

There are actually four things to see when visiting Blarney Castle. Blarney House was built in 1847, there is a rock close, beautiful gardens and of course the Castle.
The word "blarney" was introduced into the English language by Elizabeth I and is defined as 'pleasant talk, intending to deceive without offending'.
It is also said, "Eloquence will be bestowed on all who kiss the Blarney Stone".

    Maybe it is a bunch of Blarney, but what a funny old tradition! Just think of all the lips that have touched the Blarney stone.

    So, did you try and kiss the Blarney Stone? Sounds like I would get too dizzy and probably would kiss the side of the castle. hahaha sounds lovely Kat
