Here you will find the legendary Stone of Eloquence. Kiss it & you’ll never again be lost for words. Some time for shopping at Blarney Woollen Mills. The presence of the Woollen Mills during the famine shielded Blarney from the worst effects of the famine, due to its employment of local workers.

Within a short period of time Chris and his family transformed the mill into what is perhaps the largest quality craft shop in Ireland.
