148. Kiss the Blarney stone

My Story

Completed April 2005

I was very lucky the day I visited Blarney Castle. Not only was the weather beautiful, but there was hardly anyone there!

We arrived at the top of the castle actually short of breath from unexpectedly having to climb all the stairs without stopping. Normally, you inch up, step by step because the line for kissing the stone is just that long.

To kiss the stone, you must lie on your back, and scoot up so that from the waist up you’re dangling upside down from the top of the castle’s tower.

A very nice man holds on to your waist and tells you “Kiss!”

Looking up at the tower from the ground, the hand is pointing at the place where you hang and kiss.
