If you visit Blarney Castle, then you must kiss the Blarney Stone.

Blarney Castle

Would you dangle upside down and backwards from an ancient stone fortress, with the ground visible five stories below, to kiss a rock? Did I mention the only safety device is a nice fellow holding you by your waist? Visiting Blarney Castle, I had to kiss the Blarney Stone. According to legend, my reward would be the gift of eloquence.

After winding my way up a narrow, rounded stairwell, I summited the impenetrable wall and saw the most breathtaking views of the countryside. Great for spotting approaching enemies; or enjoying an afternoon tea, watching the lazy stream below.
