How to kiss
the Blarney Stone



Climb five stories up the castle via a tight spiral staircase.


Lie on your back on a floor slab area (outlined in white in left photo on page one).


Arch backwards and downwards. For support, you grab the two vertical iron bars on either side of the Blarney Stone. A castle staffer holds onto your legs or midsection just in case.


You're now in position to kiss the hard-to-reach Blarney Stone.
