To get the gift of the gab...

Legend has it that kissing the Blarney Stone gives one the gift of eloquence. So when we visited Blarney Castle in Ireland today, I had to give it a go for myself.

We climbed the 100 or so very narrow stairs to the top of the castle...

Resisting the urge to get out my bottle of Dettol, I was lowered down (it's not exactly a comfortable thing to do!) and - I did it!!!

The stone is what draws visitors to the castle, but I have to say, with it's eerie dungeons, crumbling old rooms and medieval charm, this castle has a lot more going for it then just the famed stone... Loved it!
