ISS - Blarney Castle Trip Nov 2021 Back to events list

Date: November 13th, 2021 from 10:00 to 15:30
Price:Student (FullTime) €9.0
Venue: Blarney Castle

Meet-up location: MTU / Rossa Ave Bus Stop (219) 10am - 3.30pm

Blarney Castle was built nearly six hundred years ago by one of the Ireland's greatest chieftans, Cormac McCarthy, and has been attracting attention ever since. Over the last few hundred years, millions have flocked to Blarney making it a world landmark and one of the Ireland's greatest treasurer. Now that might have something to do with the Blarney Stone, the legendary Stone of Eloquence, found at the top of our tour. (Sadly, current due to COVID reasons, you cannot kiss it!)

We recommend everyone to bring some food with you and have a nice picnic lunch at the Gardens but there is also some food on the property.

After the Blarney Castle visit, we will travel to Blarney Woolen Mills - one of the biggest shop that sells wool product. We will stay there for about 30-45 minutes.
We hope everyone could join us on this trip for a great experience, please do email us if you have any questions.
