Ireland Itinerary, Blarney Castle
Our Ireland Adventure, Dublin
Our first castle in Ireland was Blarney Castle, and it did not disappoint! Of course the castle was amazing, but the grounds were equally as impressive. We spent several hours exploring all the gardens and waterfalls.
We hit the ground running our first day, and headed straight to Blarney Castle. The drive was a little over two hours from Dublin. Luckily, I had read to give yourself enough time to explore the grounds, and we spent several hours here. Of course we went straight to the Castle and up to the top, not for the faint of heart, think tiny winding staircases, to kiss the Blarney Stone. It is suppose to bring you the gift of eloquence.
After exploring, we hopped back in the car and headed to the coastal town of Cobh for more exploring and dinner. Of course we had to get a picture of all the colorful houses!
Cobh was extremely charming and the perfect place to end our day!
