Tweety leprechaun with cauldron in Ireland


Blarney castle

Here, the main attraction is to kiss the Blarney stone up the tower, the main vestige of the castle. Beaware, to do so one must lie on one's back with shoulders just above the heights... But, fortunately, railings are here to prevent the fall and a man is present to watch and help if necessary. So no danger, but it's better not to feel dizzy. One can retrieve a photo at the exit. By the way, kissing the stone is supposed to give eloquence gift !
