12 Dec Blarney Castle, County Cork
This is a famous stop for many tours of Ireland.
The first castle was built of wood , and the one currently visited is in fact the third castle built here.
The big draw for visitors is “skiing the Blarney Stone”.
This is a block of limestone which if kissed can enhance your “Blarney” as the Irish say.
The castle itself has the remains of the outer walls and an impressive keep.
There is a real atmosphere around the castle reflecting its interesting history.
On the ground floor were the armoury and kitchen.
On the next floor was the dining room , and above that the chapel.
The main staircase has a small outlet that led to the chamber of the Baroness.
There is also a small room with a huge fireplace. This was used to heat the cauldrons of tar and oil used to defend the castle during a siege.
