Blarney Castle is the third structure to have been erected on this site. In the 10th century there was a wooden hunting lodge. Around 1210 this was replaced by a stone structure with its entrance some twenty feet above the ground on the north face. This building was demolished for foundations of the third castle built by Cormac MacCarthy in 1446. It is the tower house, or fortress residence of this that we know today as Blarney Castle.
