Darr Honors Ireland
The famous Blarney Castle is pictured. Blarney Castle is home to the legendary Blarney Stone that, if kissed, gives the person the "gift of gab" and will allow anyone the special powers of charisma while speaking. Outside of this beautiful castle lies a series of gardens which include the Poison Gardens, a collection of multi-regional poisonous plants found throughout history.
