Day 4–Is Blarney just Blarney? No. Or, maybe yes. Perhaps because we didn’t kiss the stone we cannot wax eloquent. For those of who grew up with Disney castles the Blarney Castle feels authentic. The caves, dungeon area and poison garden were the best part of the visit there.
We opted not to kiss the stone to spare ourselves some contagion, but we did enjoy the gardens. No harm, no foul.
Visited St. Coleman’s Cathedral and then the Queenstown Museum in Cobh where 3 million Irish emigrated to various countries during the great famine in the mid 1800’s. Also, this was the last port of call for the Titanic before going down. Also the Lusitania departed from here before being sunk by the Huns.


No thanks, no kiss for me today
