"KISSING THE BLARNEY STONE" Blarney Castle Tip by hevbell
Blarney Castle, Ireland: 40 reviews and 56 photos
Kissing this stone, situated right at the very top of the tower at Blarney Castle, is supposed to give you the "gift of the gab" or eloquent speech. It was Queen Elizabeth I who coined the term when she was frustrated with Lord Blarneys ability to talk endlessly without ever agreeing with her demands. I was quite nervous - being I suffer from vertigo - but there is a grill to stop you falling down and when you are actually doing it it really isn't so bad. The worst bit was the head rush coming back upwards again!! Try it!! there will be no shutting you up afterwards!!
Just a word about photos, there is an official photographer there but don't let that stop you getting a friend to take a photo of you kissing the stone, you aren't obliged to buy the photos
