Out last full day in Ireland was spent at Blarney Castle. It and kissing the Blarney Stone are a tourist must – but a really highlight for us were the gardens at the Castle. They are beautiful and even though it rained quite. bit whilst we were there – we still wanted to see most of it. Afterwards, we went into town and shopped up a storm at The Blarney Woollen Mills – they have an amazing choice of jerseys, cardigans, scarves etc. We stayed overnight at Hayfield Manor and then it was a quick drive to the Cork Airport and we flew home on Edelweiss which now flies direct to Zurich (and so we didn’t have to do the long drive back to Dublin).
