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.

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!

The castle is (of course) picturesque, but the history during the tour is just as worthwhile. But the surprising part was how pretty the grounds were. Take the time to experience everything and you won't be sorry.

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!

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.

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!

Great day out, the kids will love it, plenty of space to run around and explore. And there's the Castle too, wouldn't bring small kids up to the top when it's busy though.

Very cool castle and naturally i kissed the stone. I then thought about how many other people have kissed that stone but i guess you gotta do it.
