The beautiful village of Blarney is famous the world over for its romantic castle ruins and, in particular, for the legendary Stone of Eloquence, set high up in the battlements. It's said that anyone who kisses the Blarney Stone receives "the gift of the gab". Visitors including Sir Winston Churchill, Laurel & Hardy and Mick Jagger have travelled from far and wide to kiss the stone, and there is accommodation in and around the village to suit all pockets, from caravan and camping parks to farmhouses and hotels. Blarney, with its pretty, brightly painted buildings and grassy village square, nestles amid wonderful, rolling countryside six miles north west of Cork City. The castle stands in more than a thousand acres of woodland and gardens, where visitors may spend a magical day exploring the pathways, streams and intriguingly named attractions such as the hermit's cave, the witch's kitchen and the wishing steps. Souvenir hunters will find some quality shopping at Blarney Woollen Mills, which display all kinds of Irish craftwork, from textiles to jewellery and crystal. Fitness fans can enjoy local leisure centres, while outdoor activities include walking, golf and fishing. Also, there's a lovely nature trail at the River Martin Valley woodland farm.
