Definitely a one if a kind trip. I just wish I had more time to experience everything it has to offer. Definitely take the time to go through the entire castle and to kiss the blarney stone.

This is one of the most beautiful castle ruins I've ever seen. And most of the structure is still intact allowing you to still see the space or at least imagine what the space looked like when it was in use. And with the history of that blarney stone, you can't pass up the history to be a part of tradition that has lasted for hundreds of years. The history in this area is beautiful and the views are breathtaking. This is made for any type of traveler and allows you to explore on your own or with a group trip.

The line wasn't bad! Pretty short actually and kissing the stone is something you can brag about forever! You have to bend over backwards to kiss it. The surrounding area of the castle (included in admission) is very cool! We spent 5 hours exploring.

If you don't want to wait in line to kiss the Blarney Stone, make sure that you go see the castle. I wanted the bragging rights, and the gift of the gab so of course we all kissed the stone.
