After months of remodeling, the Blarney Stone opens its final addition.  This court yard area is the last of three new sections to open at the Blarney Stone.  In the back you will find secluded booths and a room with a fireplace.  The Blarney Stone has been downtown for about two years.  Over the last several months crews remodeled the former Windows and Doors store, doubling the size of the restaurant and pub.   This garage door wall retracts into the ceiling, which will allow for indoor outdoor dining.
