Top 100 Attractions Review

Before being fortunate enough to travel all over the UK & Ireland visiting some amazing tourist attractions, I had visited Bunratty a few times. Every time I returned back to this attraction I saw something different that I hadn't noticed the previous time. I like the way every care and attention has gone into restoring these buildings from where they originated, too here on Bunratty's popular folk park. Not only can you walk at your own leisurely pace around the castle and folk park, but a trip to Bunratty isn't complete until you've been to the popular Bunratty Medieval Banquet. A five course food extravaganza awaits you and some amazing music and cheer to boot. I found the banquet to be fantastic value for money, and after visiting a couple of attractions of this nature I have to say Bunratty is about the best Medieval Banquet that I have been too.

Bunratty Castle & Folk Park

Attraction

Bunratty Castle & Folk ParkBunratty Castle & Folk Park

Bunratty Castle & Folk park is one of Ireland's premier visitor attractions and richly deserves to feature on the itinerary of every visitor to the Shannon region. Bunratty Castle, built in 1425, is the most complete and authentic medieval fortress in Ireland and contains furnishings, tapestries, and works of art from the period.

The castle is famous for the night time medieval banquets which operate there throughout the year (reservations necessary).

Bunratty Folk Park, set on 26 acres, is a stunning recreation of 19th Century Ireland and features various types of farmhouses, a church, a magical walled garden and village street complete with pub, post office and various shops. A traditional Irish Night operates in the Folk Park on evenings from April - October (reservations necessary).
