DESCRIPTION

Built nearly six hundred years ago by one of Ireland’s greatest chieftains, Cormack MacCarthy, Blarney Castle is one of the country’s most visited castles. Every year thousands flock to visit the ancient castle building and its delightful gardens – and to kiss the Blarney Stone, the legendary Stone of Eloquence, at the top of the Castle. From here are spectacular views across 60 acres of sprawling parkland, including gardens, avenues, arboretums and waterways. 

The Castle and Gardens are steeped in the history of Ireland – and are a place of mystery, magic and storytelling, in the great Irish tradition. This richly illustrated book presents Blarney in all its glory, giving historical context, a comprehensive tour of the Castle, Manor House and Garden – and a taste of the many myths and legends that draw visitors from all over the world to Blarney today.
