To Kiss the Blarney Stone

To Kiss the Blarney Stone

If you ever wondered where the Blarney Stone was just look up. This shot was taken from a balcony looking into the exposed interior of Blarney Castle. The people at the top of the building are standing around the Blarney Stone and it looks like there’s one brave soul yet to perform the deed. The other two are Castle employees.

You see, you have to lie flat on the stone walkway high above there and lean out backwards while holding on to two railings and then kiss the stone just below floor level. Don’t worry. There are bars below you. I’ve never heard of anyone falling to their death! One of those guys holds on to you while you kiss the Stone and the other takes a photo.
