We recently visited the castle as part of a Trafalgar Tour, and it was one of our highlights! We waited about an hour to get up to the top of the castle and kiss the Blarney Stone. The trip up to the top was narrow and there was no turning back...but it was a fun experience. The view was very nice at the top, and it was memorable being "tipped back" to kiss the stone! There was an interesting poison garden to explore, and unfortunately we did not get to explore all of the other gardens. The Woollen Mills gift shop was a great spot to purchase gifts for family and friends, and we wished we had more time to check it out.
Overall, this was a very memorable part of our trip to Ireland. Be a tourist, have fun and check it out! It is a lot of fun...and a bit of an adventure to get to the top!
