Rebel County
County Cork has made a name for itself as the home of the Blarney Stone, the legendary limestone rock rumored to give those who kiss it "the gift of the gab." People come from around the world to bend over backwards and put their lips to the rock in the hopes of becoming more eloquent. In Cork, the county's eponymous city, it is said that the accents rise and fall with the city's rolling terrain. The southern county attracts those looking for the iconic green hills, craggy coastline, and warm hospitality of Ireland. Known affectionately as The Rebel County for its role in the Irish War of Independence, this region is proudly Irish, as evidenced in the region's many cultural festivals and events.
