Now that we've covered the business let's get to the fun part. Blarney Castle in Co. Cork -- probably the most touristy place in Ireland. Truth be told, I was not looking forward to going, much less kissing the slimy, germy Blarney Stone which has had millions of tourist's lips smudging it. After 2 1/2 months in Ireland, I enjoyed seeing and doing the things that most tourists don't do.
