    ... are very steep. From the top the views are amazing! We met the little helper man up there and he helped all of us kiss the stone. You lie on your back, hold the bar and the man helps you kiss the stone. He says “kiss, kiss” and off you go. “Legend” has it that if you kiss the Blarney stone you get the gift of eloquence.

It's like I don't want to leave but I know I'll have to. This weather sucks. Cold, grey and raining all the time. I even slept with a hot water bottle last night!
