Home of the famous Blarney Stone that you MUST kiss. A beautiful castle, it is definitely a must-see if you are in Cork. Things to see and do in Cork.
2. Malahide Castle
This castle has been beautifully restored. Situated in Dublin, it is close to the coast and would make an excellent day trip when the weather improves. Things to see and do in Dublin.

4. Kilkenny Castle
I was here myself once. This castle is beautiful and the town of Kilkenny is great. The castle is the vocal point of the medieval town. Things to see and do in Kilkenny.

Spoiler alert, very expensive to rent apparently, so maybe we’ll just visit for an hour or two. This castle has amazing views and surroundings and is on the banks of the River Blackwater in County Waterford. Just in case it’s too expensive to stay, here are other things to see and do in Waterford.
