Blarney, Ireland - 25th September 2012

By: Tom+Jerry

On our first day we travelled to Blarney, a town near Cork, located in the South of Ireland.
There you can find the famous "Blarney Castle" with his very famous "Blarney Stone"
The Blarney Stone (Irish: Cloch na Blarnan) is a block of bluestone built into the battlements of Blarney Castle, Blarney, about 8 kilometres from Cork. According to legend, kissing the stone endows the kisser with the gift of the gab (great eloquence or skill at flattery). The stone was set into a tower of the castle in 1446. The castle is a popular tourist site in Ireland, attracting visitors from all over the world to kiss the stone and tour the castle and its gardens.

This is the castle
And here's the stone:
We found this sign under the stone:
The gardens are beautiful  :D
And we walked around a huge lake (Lough Blarney). BamBam, NoMi and myself liked the hundreds of waterlilies
