Yes, you can kiss the stone at Blarney, but you'll find a more pleasant, reflective adventure here. History to the Stone Age. Still an active Christian site. Good interpretive center. Plenty to explore. And that's no Blarney.

Fantastic couple of hours exploring the ruins and looking at the grave stones. The history dates back to the Iron Age and continues right up to the 19th century. The museum tells you all the history of the place with well presented displays. Getting up...More

Heather, We had a car. Sans that, I would think there would be local coach tours?
