One of my favorite excursions while in Ireland was our day trip to the world-famous Blarney Stone.
The castle grounds seemed to go on forever – filled with gardens, mansions, and enchanting forests of greenery.
Such an iconic experience and definitely worth a stop on your Irish road trip!
The panoramic views from the top of the castle give you a bird’s eye view of the Irish countryside.
When they say Ireland is green, they truly mean every shade of green you could ever imagine.
This is the only picture we snapped while I made a wish and kissed the Blarney Stone!
It’s actually hilarious, because Kaela had just gone before me and was so freaked out, she forgot what to do.
If you’re afraid of heights, just close your eyes and hope for the best – because you truly are hanging upside down off the side of a castle.
After exploring the castle grounds, we ventured off and followed the paths into this forest which felt like we entered an entirely new world.
I’m so happy we were able to experience this together… Two American girls kissing the Blarney Stone at the mere age of 21! Hopefully it brings us a lifetime of well-being and good luck!
