Blarney Castle and Blarney Stone

Don’t forget to kiss the Blarney Stone! A great tradition for tourists young and old, visit Cork and visit the Blarney stone! Legend has it that the Cormac McCarthy, who had a fear of public speaking, was instructed to kiss the stone by the goddess Cliodhna, when he invoked her help with a legal case. The goddess told him to kiss the first stone he saw on the morning of the case. McCarthy did so, spoke with great fluency, won the case, and put stone into the castles tower.

Be warned — kissing the stone of eloquence is not a straightforward matter. The visitor must ascend to the top of the castle, lie on their back, and dangle over the edge, then pass under the slab and press their lips upwards onto the slab! The help of a second person is usually advised.
