What an excellent experience the banquet here is. The entertainment team make sure that everyone has a wonderful time. The music is of a very high standard and the entertainment great fun. Although the food was served to probably over a hundred people simultaneously, it was hot, well cooked and tasty. Chris the leader of the team is to be commended for his versatility, he did everything from serving to singing. Fantastic!
A must do, if you are in the area.

Definitely a popular tourist attraction, and for a reason. The restored structure is truly amazing as are the halls, in particular the banquet hall. Very helpful guides.

This is one of the nicer and intact castles. Like Blarney and some of the others the stairways are tiny and claustrophobic so I am glad we visited during the off-season. This is definitely worth a stop.

Bunratty Castle was truly an experience which brought you back to Midevil Ireland, Walking up the staircases you can feel how hard it would have been to run up those stairs in full armor preparing for an attack. The clever ways they fought are for you to discover. Definitely an experience for the whole family to enjoy.

During our recent trip to Ireland and England we toured many castles and by far Bunratty was the best. It has been restored to its original luster. It gives one the true feel of what it must have been like to live in the Middle Ages. The surrounding cottages and houses add to the overall experience. It is worth the trip

A great family outing, the castle was vast with lots of interesting features and rooms that were furnished with period pieces. There are some fantastic views from the castle roof. We visited early morning mid-week and there were very few visitors which was great as I dont think I would have enjoyed ascending the narrow staircases during a busy period. The tradional houses and street setting in the folk park were of a very high standard, there is a tradional pub to visit if you fancy a pint. We didn't eat on site but there was several options available. There is a good playground for the children, various farm animals and a stunning pair of Irish Wolf Hounds. I will definitely visit again.

We had so much fun at Bunratty castle and folk park. We arrived in the morning when they opened. We had breakfast at their little cafe at the entrance. Explored the castle and the heritage village all day, and really wish we could stay longer. We had some tea and cake at the folk park, which is so interesting and full of farm animals. We finished our day with an awesome dinner at Durty Nelly’s. Highly recommended, everything!

My husband and I were driving through on our way from Kinvara to Dingle. I had put this place as a place to stop if we had time. We were glad we did. The castle is very authentically restored with lots of interesting information on who had owned it in the past and who had invested the time and money to restore it. We had seen cottages elsewhere but enjoyed the varying styles in the folk park. They had some small craftspeople working and selling their products in shops in the village as well as the usual gift shop exit. I would recommend this as a great place to visit as a couple or with a family.

We loved touring the Bunratty grounds during the day. It was a good taste of Irish heritage. In the evening we attended the "Traditional Irish Night" in the Corn Barn. The food was very tasty. The servers who were also the performers for the musical show were so fun to interact with. What a fun evening with top-notch service and food and entertainment! The park is family friendly.
