    Nestled in the charming village of Blarney is one of Cork’s greatest treasures. Built nearly 600 years ago,  Blarney Castle is known the world over for the famous stone that has been a must see attraction for any visitor to Ireland over the past 200 years.

    Blue Forest were contracted to design and build a Blarney castle walkway in the grounds of this historic castle offering visitors the chance to stroll around one of the country’s most spectacular gardens, enjoy a picnic by the lake or explore the Rock Close – a mystical place where majestic yew and oak trees grow around an ancient druidic settlement.

    In 2006, the Discovery Channel listed kissing the Blarney Stone amongst its 99 things to do before you die! Today, more than 400,000 visitors pass through the castle gates every year in the hope of receiving the ‘Gift of Eloquence’.
