My daughter and I just visited Blarney Castle and they told us there were 120 steps, although it didn't feel like that many.

Installed in the Blarney Castle, 127 steps up lies the Blarney Stone. The Blarney stone, also known as the Stone of Eloquence is located 37 feet from the ground.

Blarney Castle is about 90 feet high and the stone is close to the top of the castle.

To get to the Blarney Stone, you have to first got to Ireland... obviously... Also, there are only two bars holding you up and a worker's hands. I am a secondary source because this is info from my friend. :) Hope this helps....

The world famous Blarney Stone is situated high up in the battlements of the castle. Follow one of the several long, stone spiral staircases up to the top and enjoy the spectacular views of the lush green Irish countryside, Blarney House and The Village of Blarney. The stone is believed to be half of the Stone of Scone which originally belonged to Scotland. Scottish Kings were crowned over the stone, because it was believed to have special powers. The stone was given to Cormac McCarthy by Robert the Bruce in 1314 in return for his support in the Battle of Bannockburn. Queen Elizabeth I wanted Irish chiefs to agree to occupy their own lands under title from her. Cormac Teige McCarthy, the Lord of Blarney, handled every Royal request with subtle diplomacy, promising loyalty to the Queen without "giving in". Elizabeth proclaimed that McCarthy was giving her "a lot of Blarney", thus giving rise to the legend.

Five miles north west of the small city of Cork is the village of Blarney - its name being derived from the Irish An blarna meaning 'the plain'. Near the village, standing almost 90 feet in height, is the solidly built castle of Blarney. Cormac MacCarthy erected the present castle, the third constructed at the site, in 1446. Built on a rock, above several caves, the tower originally had three storeys. On the top storey, just below the battlements on the parapet, is the world famous Blarney Stone, said to give the gift of eloquence to all who kiss it. Kissing the stone is for some people a difficult physical feat. In past times, to kiss the Stone people were hung by their heels over the edge of the parapet. One day a pilgrim broke from the grasp of his friends and went hurtling downward to certain death. Since that time the stone has been kissed by another method. First, you sit with your back towards the stone and then someone sits upon your legs or firmly holds your feet. Next, leaning far back and downward into the abyss while grasping the iron rails, you pull yourself up until you can kiss the underside of the overhanging stone. They dont know for sure where its from but the local story has always been that it was a gift from the scottish in thanks for MacCarthy/desmond support in the battle of bannuckburn (wrong spelling) against the english. The Stone is said to be part of the stone of scon on which scottish kings were traditionally inaugriated. Supposedly, if you kiss the Blarney Stone, you will have the gift of eloquence and persuasion (the gift of gab).

To go from the ground floor in your house (as an example) to your bedroom on the next floor up, you will have to climb a flight of stairs. A flight of steps is similar, though could mean several stone steps leading from the pavement up to your front door.
