Blarney is home to Blarney Castle and the world-renowned Blarney Stone.

Legend has it that by kissing the Blarney Stone, one can receive the “Gift of the Gab”, or to master the art of flattery.

The castle, in its current form, dates from the mid-15th century, having been rebuilt after the original structure, dating from the early 13th century, was destroyed.

The village is also home to the famous Blarney Woollen Mills, which was built in 1823. 

Originally a water-powered mill, to produce tweeds and wools, the mills have been re-invented as a gift store for tourists.

There are also nature trails and an opportunity for salmon and wild brown trout fishing in the vicinity.
