Blarney Castle Stairway

Climbing to the top of Blarney Castle requires a climb up steep stairs that get narrower and smaller as you reach the top. It’s not for the faint hearted or claustrophobic!

Wow! I remember going there when I was young and just being absolutely terrified of those steps! I don’t know exactly what it was, maybe claustrophobia or something like you say. You captured it really well, almost brings back those sick feelings 🙂

This is the stairwell down from the top. There are two staircases, one for going up, the other for going down. On the way up, at the top of the castle the stairs is about half as wide, and the steps are *very* steep! It’s difficult and slow going.

It’s worth it though for the view, Matt is as mad about photography as I am and we both went mad taking shots of the surrounding countryside!
