Bunratty Castle

Bunratty Castle is built on an ancient historical site, a Viking trade camp from 970. The castle standing today is the fourth iteration of this defensive building to stand on the site. The Folk Park which is part of the grounds of the castle offers visitors a living re-construction of the homes and way of life of the people of rural Ireland over a century ago. This wonderful tourist attraction is close to the City of Limerick and only a 10 minute drive from the Park Inn by Radisson Shannon Airport.

Explore Bunratty Castle
The many houses, shops and public buildings of Bunratty Castle's Folk Village form a collection of typical 19th century urban Irish dwellings. Walking amongst the buildings and meeting the people who are recreating life there is a wonderful way to bring history to life in a time when many people had to sew their own clothes, bake their own foods and life was far more labour intensive.

There is a beautiful walled garden built for the house in 1804. They have recently been restored and careful attention has been paid to using the land in contemporary traditional ways and using plants from the time. The castle too was restored in the 1950s and is now home to a fine collection of 15th and 16th century furnishings, wall hangings and artefacts.
