  • We had a great day exploring the castle and gardens. We also got to see the house (which closes at 2 and is only open for tours in the summer) which was interesting. We lucked out having a beautiful day as well but even in the rain it's worth it to see. The castle is amazing and there are picture opportunities everywhere

  • Visited a couple of more castles around Ireland and this was the most rewarding one. Took the audio guide, which is quite informative and makes the trip much more informative. Kissing the Blarney stone was the highlight of the trip but it does not overshadow the gardens and attractions found all around the castle. Enjoyed the Fern garden and also the blarney rock area.

  • Great place to visit. Definitely one of the best kept castles around. The gardens are beautiful and are must see. We it there at 9am right when they opened. There was a line of about 30 people to get in. We went straight to the castle to see the stone. The stone is at the top of the castle and it is basically single file all the way to the top. There are naturally carved spiral staircases that are pretty steep, narrow, and tight. If slow people are in front of you it is going to take a while. It took us about 20 minutes to get to the top. You can see all the rooms on your way down so I would suggest skipping the side stops on your way up. When we left the castle the wait was already one hour at 10am.

  • Out of all the castles I have been to in Ireland so far this one is my favorite. Kissing the balarney stone was great. Getting up was hard but that is okay it was worth it. I loved the grounds. Could easily spend an entire day here exploring. Two hours was just not enough time.

  • Had a great time here. Gardens are lovely, got to kiss the Blarney stone and explore the castle. Kids under 8 are free. You could spend hours wandering around the grounds
