Prior to my first ever trip to Ireland last week, the only thing I knew to do there was to kiss the Blarney stone, so naturally I put it on my list of things to see and do. Judging from the crowds, so do most...More
Excellent bed and breakfast. Sometimes you look at photos and are disappointed when you actually arrive. No this accommodation is first class. Would certainly recommend and if were returning to Cork this would be my first choice. Food was superb. Recommended by the owner to...More
The grounds are 5 star. Lots and lots to see and very pleasant to walk round. If that is all you go for you'll have a fab day (even though the features are all fakes!). If you want to see Blarney Castle expect to queue...More

The castle and grounds are so amazing that I guess you could skip the stone, but why would you? The climb up is not for the faint of heart or those that don't like heights, but put that aside and head on up! The gentlemen...More
It depends, we went early in the morning and we were behind a couple tour bus groups. We waited in line about an hour. I heard some one say that late afternoon was good because that's when all the buses are gone. Still the... More
It depends, we went early in the morning and we were behind a couple tour bus groups. We waited in line about an hour. I heard some one say that late afternoon was good because that's when all the buses are gone. Still the hour went pretty quick as the line runs through the castle.
