Set in beautiful wooded countryside and just 8km from Cork City, Blarney offers the visitor a host of wonderful things to do. One of the most impressive features is the well-preserved village square which is a focal point of village life. Blarney has developed around the square which is owned by Blarney Castle Estate.

Justifiably Blarney continues to be widely known internationally and over 200,000 people visit Blarney Castle each year to kiss the Blarney Stone and explore the castle, which is situated in a magnificent thousand acre park.

Steeped in history and magical charm, Blarney is the perfect base to visit the sights of Cork and Kerry
