Hoping For Gift of Gab

It was time to leave Killarney, and head to Cork, early in the morning. Once there, we would visit Blarney Stone, where we would kiss the stone for the gift of gab.

I went up to the castle and waited in line. The castle itself was a ruin, so not much to look at. When I got to the stone, a person held me down to kiss the stone. I asked someone else to take a picture for me, since I was not willing to pay for the attraction's photo.

After coming back down, I tried to look for the wishing steps. It has been said that if one goes down the stairs backwards and makes a wish, then the wish will come true. Unfortunately, I was not able to find it, and I had to return to the bus.

We left Blarney Stone, and headed to Cashel.
