The stone circle, kitchen etc are probably all 16th c follies built by James Jefferies. The blarney stone has plenty of origon stories Jacobs pillow, the other part of the Lia Fail or a gift from Cormac Laidir McCarthy by the Corca Laoidhe Goddess Cliodhna. Probably alot of Blarney. There is alot of authentic history n stuff to the place somewhat overshadowed by mass tourism brought about by Father Prout. Working on a book on it...
