Castles, Big Houses, Ruins and Churches, Cork
Favorite thing: I had a real fascination with Castles and especially the Ramparts! I could just vision waiting up in the castle waitin for enemy to attack. Well I thought they were cool anyways! They reminded me the fairytales and stories that I read as a kid.
Favorite thing: I loved the steep steeple of this Church made of stone. Alot of buildings in this area are made from stone. There are plenty of quarries still producing the stone.
Favorite thing: At the perimeter of the Blarney Castle you can see the remants of old walls. I don't think they would keep out to many intruders now!
Favorite thing: The area around Blarney Castle is nice for a walk. I really enjoyed my time there. You get great views of the countryside from the top of the castle.
