Bunratty Castle & Folk Park reviews
This was great activity. The castle was interesting and the tour through it was pretty thorough. We also enjoying walking around Folk Park. While we didn't have any kids this is perfect for families. more »
I went to dirty Nelly's for dinner the food was lovely and fresh even the food was hot would recommend the steak sandwich more »
Bunratty Castle was a very nice attraction. I can see the reason it's said that this is the most authentic castle in Ireland. It's really more like a little village. The castle is great to explore, but get there early so you don't have to wait in line too long to go up and down the stairs inside the castle. Make sure you make it to the library at the top. The ceiling is amazing.
We were not aware of just how expansive this site was until we started exploring. The castle is just the tip of the iceberg. There are plenty of buildings and gardens to explore and enjoy. The staff of the castle were very informative with the history of the castle and the various furnishings within. I'm glad we chose this as our first stop out of the airport. We ended up spending nearly 3 hours here.
