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.
