KISS THE STONE! You have the option not to of course, but it's tradition. There's a photographer (free, tips welcome) and you can purchase your professional photo at the end of the tour. I'd get there as early as possible otherwise that line gets to be up to an hour long. Incredible history and unforgettable experience. Surrounded by a beautiful garden, pond, animals, cafe and shops. I love this place, a MUST in Ireland!

So much more to see than the stone. Beautiful gardens, caves, forest trail boardwalk, stone circle garden were my favourites besides gaining the gift of the gab! Well-priced too.

The castle sits on 60 acres of grounds, all of which are beautiful. Try to see everything, not just the castle and the stone. There was a small wait to see/kiss the stone, but it was on the bucket list and well worth it. The castle is unique and well kept (for a castle). We explored the rest of the grounds and had an amazing time and would recommend that everyone else does so as well. Side Note - bring mouth wash for after kissing the stone

Gorgeous gardens and the castle is remarkably in good conditions. Fair price as well, not a rip off in my opinion. Haven't missed the stone but feel blessed nevertheless by this place :-)

Blarney Castle and Gardens is a stunning display of beauty with the fern gardens and the creek running through it with lookout towers and woods and all this view is even MORE beautiful when viewing from the top of Blarney Castle. The purpose of coming here is to “kiss the stone to gain powers of a gifted tongue” and the story the guides will tell you is an interesting one at that. What they don’t tell you is after you purchase your ticket expect at least an hour wait to get to the Blarney Stone at the top of the stunning castle. To do this site proper you should budget 3 hours. You can do it in an hour but you are leaving a lot on the table if you do The stairs to the top are very steep and windy so those with climbing problems should check to see if they have a lift A must site to attend

Better than you might expect. The Blarney Stone is a load of tosh, but there is a very large castle, huge gardens, grounds and a House to visit and see. A very full half day is needed and it's well worth the time. Lots of (complex) Irish history bound up in this place. Vey nice courtyard cafe and pretty good value at about Eur 15 for a visit.

"You can kiss my...stone!" That's, what this castle would say, if it could speak. The castle itself is nothing more than a ruin. You will be guided through the castle over small steps. And there are a lot of them. But there isn't solely the castle: There are some well-kept gardens, trails you can walk, a "dungeon" and caves. It is nothing, you would say, you have never seen before. But in its entirety it is a place, which is worth to visit. Is it worth the price? Meassured on the time you can spend: Definitely!

It was absolutely amazing. This was the first castle we saw during our trip and it was beautiful.
