Situated 8 km from Cork City, this historic castle is most famous for its stone, it is said it has the traditional power of conferring eloquence on all who kiss it. The stone is set in the wall below the battlements, and to kiss it, one has to lean backwards (grasping an iron railing) from the parapet walk.
In the grounds of the castle the Rock Close and its surroundings is a curious place of ancient trees and far more ancient stones, by legend a garden of druidic origin and a centre of worship in pre-Christian days. The place has an aura of magic and mystique with Wishing Steps, Witch's Kitchen, Druids Cave and many other delights such as Lake Walk, Waterfall, Fern Garden, Ice-house and Lime Kiln, all telling a story of centuries past.
