The witches stone is a stone in the shape of a witch. It is said to contain the witch of Blarney, who emerges out of the stone every night.

She makes a fire every night to keep warm in an old cave under a tree. Historians say the kitchen was probably a home for cave dwellers before the witch moved in.

The wishing steps are stone steps. You are supposed to walk down and up the stairs with your eyes closed and only thinking of your wish. Some say to walk backwards. If you are able to do so, the witch will grant your wish within a year.

When my wish comes true, I will tell you what it was.
