Blarney Castle & Cork

Blarney Castle is one of Ireland's best treasures. It is almost 600 years old and was built by one of Ireland's greatest chieftains, Cormac MacCarthy. One of the many attractions at Blarney Castle is the world famous Blarney stone. Climb the steps to the top of the tower where you lean backwards to kiss the Blarney Stone and gain the gift of eloquence as plenty have done before you.

Set on 60 acres of serene and mystical parklands the Blarney Stone isn't the only thing Blarney Castle has to offer, you can visit the Poison Garden, which has a collection of poisonous plants from all over the world that are so dangerous and toxic some are kept in cages, the Fern Garden, a grassy path with over 80 types of ferns, the Icehouse, an example of a Victorian fridge or the Bog Garden with its waterfalls and raised wooden boardwalk.

Cork City was the European Capital of Culture in 2005 and was also named as one of the Top Ten Cities in the world to visit by Lonely Planet. Cork City blends together history and tradition with contemporary style with its pedestrian lane ways, narrow streets, gourmet food shops and a range of pubs and clubs. Take a tour of University College Cork, one of Ireland's oldest universities or see zebra, cheetahs, monkeys, meerkats and a whole lot more at Fota Wildlife Park!
