    Bunratty Castle and Folk Park

    Bunratty Castle & Folk Park is one of Ireland’s top tourist attractions and a must-see for any visitor to the Shannon region. The Castle is the most complete and authentic medieval fortress in Ireland, while the Folk Park is a living outdoor museum featuring over 30 buildings and a beautiful walled garden in a stunning recreation of 19th Century Ireland that covers 26 acres. You can also visit for the celebrated nightly medieval banquets.

    Running twice nightly year round, this is a sumptuous four course banquet at the castle with authentic-ish medieval dishes (including mead, but also coffee and tea for those who choose to round off in a more 'modern' manner) and also a half hour traditional Irish music show and after hours attendance to the castle and folk museum.

    Founded in 1620 and right under Bunratty Castle, this is both undeniably a landmark Irish pub, and a place that caters mostly to tourists. But that is not necessarily a bad thing, as it means the service is professional and the menu broad and accessible.

    A good range of pub and traditional Irish fare, located right next to Bunratty Castle. Popular with locals as well as tourists.

    The Restaurant Association of Ireland's 'Best Restaurant' in Clare' - enough said! Set in an 18th century thatched roof country cottage, Gallagher’s is a seafood restaurant offering the finest local catches - including lobster and oysters, as well as 'landlubbers' choices.
