If you've ever wanted a time machine, this ticket to Bunratty Castle & Folk Park might be the next best thing. Head back to 19th-century village life at Bunratty Folk Park and meet costumed characters recreating the traditions of a bygone era! See a Victorian supply garden and take the kids to the fairy village!
In Bunratty Folk Park, walk through farmhouses, village shops, and streets, which all appear as they would have done over a century ago. Talk to the costume characters and see some of them at work in roles like milling, printing, baking, pottery, farming and more.
Outside, explore a Regency period garden built in Victorian style, which might have provided fresh fruit, vegetables, and flowers to Bunratty House in the 17th-century. And storybook fans will get a kick out of the fairy village.
Originally built in 1425, the castle was restored to its former medieval glory in 1954. It's a fun-packed historical day out for the whole family.
Cancellations are not possible for this ticket.
The castle is located just off the N18 Limerick/Ennis Road, and is reachable by bus from Shannon or Limerick.
There would have been some horned helmets around the site of Bunratty Castle in the beginning - back in 970 it was a Viking trading camp!
On the estate the examples of living standards by authentic relocated houses underlined the depressing standards endured by the Irish majority.
The peat fires in the house hearths was a welcome adjunct. The place is extremely well run, the staff very friendly and the food in both the pub an cafe of fine fare.
Truly, Bunratty is a place no family should miss. Great value, easily located and plenty of free parking. Bunratty is in my view thoroughly recommendable. Mike Turner Tasmania.
