- Family-run park eight kilometres from Cork
- Views of Blarney Castle
- Immaculate amenities including a campers' kitchen
Not got the gift of the gab? Fear not, tongue-tied types: simply go along to Blarney Castle, hang yourself upside down and snog the world-famous Blarney Stone, heralded for centuries for bequesting travellers and barristers with unusual eloquence. Then get tongue-tied all over again when viewing the vista and facilities at Blarney Caravan and Camping Park, our closest site to the stone of Blarney.
This family-run park is eight kilometres from Cork and three from Blarney village, but it’s secluded and peaceful enough to feel you’re in the middle of the country (perfect for wandering around and trying out your newly-won articulation skills, we say).
There’s loads of open space for Blarney ball games, as well as a smartly-maintained play area and an 18-hole pitch and putt course (extra charge applies). The park is gently sloping and well sheltered, with views of Blarney Castle and the surrounding countryside.
Facilities at Blarney are immaculate, from the free showers to the camp kitchen, and it’s all neatly laid out among well-maintained grass and spacious pitches.
Blarney Caravan and Camping Park is easily reached from the ferry ports at Cork and Rosslare, and has a campervan service area if you’re bringing your own wheels from the UK. There’s also free wifi on site, for getting eloquent online too.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

Cork is crammed with dozens of things to see and do, from its top attraction Fora Wildlife Park to Blue Flag beaches, top pubs and restaurants, golf courses, fishing and oodles of arts and community festivals all year round.
Blarney Caravan and Camping Park is in north Cork, where the rivers of Blackwater are world renowned for coarse and game fishing; nearby Fermoy is an inland fishing centre to land trout and salmon. Head to west Cork for craggy coastline and gourmet food in Kinsale, Bandry or Baltimore (or all three), and east for farmers’ markets, Ballymaloe Cookery School, birdwatching at the coastline from Ballycotton to Youghal, and a trip to the Jameson distillery at Midleton.
The islands off Cork’s south-west coast are a must: Bere for deep sea fishing and a sailing school; Dursey and Cape Clear for birdwatching and Sherkin for sparkling white beaches and a natural history museum.
If you’re into your history and heritage – we’ll assume so if you’re here to romance the Blarney Stone – Cork is like the rest of Ireland in having heaps of historical highlights, like Kanturk Castle; the town of Cobh, last stop of the Titanic before its journey towards New York, and the old town of Mallow with Mallow castle and a heritage centre for tracing Cork ancestors. There’s also a racecourse just outside the town; well, horse-racing is a pretty historical thing too…
At least a day should be had in Cork City, Ireland’s third biggest after Dublin and Belfast. Cork City gaol and St Finbarr’s cathedral are the two big tourist draws; there are night tours in the gaol every Thursday for proper goosebumping.
Several shopping centres are to hand to help you spend all your euros before going home, but if you’ve only time for one shopping trip make it to The English Market, not where you buy English people, but a covered market selling food and organic produce of all sorts and called ‘the best covered market in the UK and Ireland’ by Rick Stein.
Leave the car behind and get the bus to Cork City from Blarney village: there are a few pubs here for fortification before making your way back to berth.
