At Ireland’s premier visitor attraction you are invited to explore three wonderful experiences – the acclaimed 15th Century Bunratty Castle, the 19th century Bunratty Folk Park and the Village Street. The Castle is the most complete and authentic medieval fortress in Ireland. Built in 1425 it was restored in 1954 to its former medieval splendour and now contains mainly 15th and 16th century furnishings, tapestries, and works of art which capture the mood of those times. Today, the castle stands peacefully in delightful grounds.

You can wander through the castle and marvel at the finest collection of medieval furniture in the country which brings to life a vital part of our Medieval past. Bunratty Castle closes each day at 4pm to prepare for the Medieval Banquet.

Within the grounds of Bunratty Castle is Bunratty Folk Park where 19th Century life is vividly recreated. Set on 26 acres (11 hectares), the impressive park features over 30 buildings in a "living" village and rural setting. Enjoy the tastes, scents, sights and sounds of this enchanting place as you stroll from house to house or around the charming village.

It’s a wonderful experience for adults and children alike with something for everyone to enjoy!
