Blarney Castle

Blarney Castle is a 500 year old castle that is in ruins. But it contains a stone, possibly from Scotland dating back to 1314, hanging 120 feet above the ground that millions lean backwards to kiss.

Exploring the grounds is a better use of your time than the castle. There is a river walk, a cave, a lovely waterfall and cows.
