BLARNEY CASTLE



This castle was built in the middle age, located in Blarney city near to Cork in the South of Ireland. This castle was rebuilt by Cormac MacCarthy, king of Munster.

This seems easy but actually it is very difficult because the Stone hangs up in the space and you must lay down. Of course I kissed the Stone. :)
