Blarney Castle, home of the Blarney Stone, was built nearly six hundred years ago and has been attracting attention ever since. Over the last few hundred years, millions have flocked to Blarney making it a world landmark and one of Ireland’s greatest treasures.

Take a walk through the beautiful gardens.
Our photos earlier from the Herbaceous Border were proving so popular we decided to do a little walk through video! This is looking spectacular at the moment and is well worth a trip to come and experience it for yourself!

Walk of the Week
This stunning walk that circles the lake, features the jetty and bird hide, and a host of wonderful wildlife and nature!
A peaceful walk away from the hustle and bustle around the castle area, I highly recommend this walk!

Take a walk around the castle itself to learn the history.
Walk of the Week – Blarney Castle
It is not open at the moment but the walk around the castle will bring you on a wonderful journey through the history of the castle, caves and dungeons but also allow you to explore the fascinating Poison Garden and Carnivorous Courtyard. pic.twitter.com/m2OB6lHtL3
