Bunratty Castle & Folk Park

within 40 milesThe restored 15th century castle is considered one of the most complete in Ireland, and it is surrounded by 25 acres of traditional Irish cottages and buildings. The main street recreates a 19th century village, and it is all watched over by the “big house” on the hill. The castle also features a nightly Medieval Banquet, and the corn barn hosts a Traditional Irish Night.

A sister store to the famous mill at Blarney operates in Bunratty. The shops provide a selection of Irish items from crystal to clothing to chocolate.
