Directions to Bunratty Castle and Folk Park
One of Ireland's cultural treasures, Bunratty Castle is located a short drive from Shannon Airport. Incorporating Bunratty Folk Park it provides an excellent opportunity to take in many aspects of Irish culture and history.
Comprised of three fantastic attractions - the castle itself, the Village Street, and the 19th century Folk Park, a trip to Bunratty is not to be missed. The castle dates from the 15th century, was restored in the mid-1900s, and houses original 15th and 16th century paintings, tapestries and furniture. The Folk Park and Village Street are set within the grounds of the castle. The Village Street offers a glimpse into the past, recreating 19th century life. You can meet the characters and enjoy the sights and sounds of a bygone era.
The Folk Park and Village Street represent a truly interactive experience, and are particularly popular with children. The buildings and environment, of the Ireland of a century ago, are brought to life and visitors can sample the crafts and tastes of the day in the company of the Bean an Tí (Lady of the house), the local policeman and schoolteacher, all dressed in historical costume.
At night, Bunratty plays host to medieval banquets, where guests are treated to an evening of fantastic entertainment by the world famous Bunratty singers, a sumptuous meal and mead reception. Learn more about the Medieval Banquet Nights and Traditional Irish Nights at Bunratty Castle.
