The castle is open year round, but do remember that kissing the Blarney Stone in winter is particularly chilling!

Shandon Church: This church's tower and bells are symbols of Cork. The pretty parish overlooks the city from the north. Visitors are even allowed to give a ring to the church bells.

Lough Park: This is one of the best parts of central Cork, just 1km to the south of the city centre. The park features a small limestone lake which is fed from springs. It is Ireland's oldest park.
