The cliffs receive almost one million visitors a year. O’Brien’s Tower is a round stone tower near the midpoint of the cliffs built in 1835 by Sir Cornelius O’Brien to impress female visitors. From the cliffs and from atop the watchtower, visitors can see the Aran Islands in Galway Bay, the Maumturks, and Twelve Pins mountain ranges to the north, and Loop Head to the south.

It has Ireland’s only native herd of Red Deer and the most extensive covering of native forest remaining in Ireland. The park is of high ecological value because of the quality, diversity, and extensiveness of many of its habitats and the wide variety of rare species that they accommodate.

The castle is now a partial ruin with some accessible rooms and battlements. At the top of the castle is now a partial ruin with some accessible rooms and battlements. At the top of the castle lies the Stone of Eloquence, better known as the Blarney Stone. Tourists visiting Blarney Castle may hang upside-down over a sheer drop to kiss the stone, which is said to give the gift of eloquence. There are many legends as to the origin of the stone, but some say that it was the Lia Fáil – a magical stone upon which Irish kings were crowned. The ritual of kissing the Blarney Stone has been performed by millions of people, including world statesmen, literary giants, and legends of the silver screen. The kiss, however, is not casually achieved. To touch the stone with one’s lips, the participant must ascend to the castle’s peak, then lean over backwards on the parapet’s edge. We then continue to Cobh to visit the Cobh Heritage Centre. Here we learn about the “Queenstown Story” of Irish Emigration. The scattering of the Irish is one of the great migration stories of the 3 million that left from this port.

Learn about the transportation of convicts to Australia and the connection between this port town and two of the biggest shipping disasters of the early 20th century. The Titanic & The Lusitania. This beautiful, imformative, and sometimes emotional Exhibition is situated within Cobh’s beautifully restored Victorian railway station, a building with its own historic story.
