It is around 30 minutes by bus from Cork city and once you reach blarney village, it will be within 5 minutes walking distance to the entrance. The scenery in blarney castle is very beautiful. Make sure to check the weather before you go because there will be outdoor mostly.

This was a wonderful experience. The castle grounds are beautifully maintained and looked after. You could spend a couple of hours just walking the gardens without heading for the castle. The castle itself is wonderful and full of little nooks and crannies. Take your time to explore the various parts which are very clearly marked. Once you make your way to the top via what my daughter called Repunzel's staircase you will have a chance to kiss the stone. Make sure you visit the poison garden. A great experience. Well worth driving to.

The castle is not a real castle, much like a big tower with some rooms but it's really nice and worth seeing, especially for the effort they put in keeping the place refurbished and tidy. The garden is incredible in summer. Plants and flowers are everywhere and you can easily spend one full day here, walking around. The Blarney stone is a nice attraction. Don't miss the druid/witches zone!

It's far better than expected. I was here years ago because I was hiking / bussing round the coast of Ireland and went here with friends expecting it to be just a tourist scam. Kissing the stone is, of course, exactly that. But I did. Not the coldest kiss of my life and perhaps not that hygeinic. The tourist shop had some hilarious products. I particularly liked the certificate that read "This is to certify that has kissed the Blarney Stone and now officially has the gift of the gab for seven years". Aside from that entertainment, this really is a fine castle /house in pretty grounds. Worth the visit definitely.

Don't visit if you are handicapped and in a wheelchair. The Blarney Castle website talks about castle access using a wheelchair accessible path to the castle - unfortunately the path is not paved, it's gravel for about 1/2 mile, which as anyone in a wheelchair can tell you is uncomfortable for both them and the person pushing, and next to impossible to navigate. If you're like us and have a wheelchair-bound person in your group, you'll end up getting them to the outside base of the castle, then having to leave them sitting there while you spend an hour to an hour-and-a-half seeing the attraction - no fun for the person in the wheelchair and distracting for the people on the tour concerned about them sitting alone. Blarney Castle is a great tourist site, just not for people in wheelchairs.

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!

Everyone should see this property. Wonderfully maintained and exactly what you'd expect Ireland to look like. There are green lush lawns and babbling streams. The castle is also lots of fun! The the stone, but be prepared for a hike!
