International Tourism in Ireland – Today we woke up in Killarney at the Castle Lodge hotel, we had a nice breakfast and then hopped on the bus and headed to the Blarney castle, it was a beautiful place. We walked around the property that had some nice gardens and waterfalls. We walked around the Blarney castle itself, but once we reached the top of the castle, we got had the opportunity to kiss the Blarney Stone, which would give us the gift of the gab, which was on my bucket list. We had to lay on our backs, while a man held us and we kissed the stone, afterwards we got pictures for proof. There was a lot to explore at this property and we had a couple hours to do it.
When we finished up at the Blarney Castle we jumped back on the bus and headed for the Rock of Cashel, which was a big castle on a huge rock. We had a guided tour through the property. I think it was a learning experience for all of us. The castle was for royalty in its beginning years and then was given to a bishop and was now a church. St.Patrick himself and Queen Elizabeth the second has visited the castle which can make it pretty iconic, and a great tourist attraction.
Once we were done at the Rock of Cashel, we were now headed for our destination which is Kilkenny, our accommodations is Lanigans Hostel.
