Bunratty Castle & Folk Park Day Visit

1. Bunratty Castle & Folk Park Day Visit

Show your ticket at Bunratty Castle and Folk Park and head inside. The castle usually opens from 9:30am until 5:30pm, with last admission at 4pm. Double check the opening times before you visit. Once inside, your ticket lets you explore as you wish. Browse the castle, a restored 15th-century tower house. Walk around at leisure or join a castle tour for a deeper insight into the building. Admire the furnishings, tapestries, and artworks, most from the 15th and 16th centuries, and learn about the castle’s history from the information booklets. Afterward, stroll around the folk park, an enchanting recreation of a 19th-century Irish village, with reconstructed farmhouses, cottages, and shops set around a village street. See the school, doctor’s house, grocery, drapery, printers and other shops, all furnished as they would have been at the time. Meet the costumed animators who bring the village to life, and visit the pub, which serves food and drinks (own expense). Plus, stroll around Bunratty Walled Garden, originally built in 1804, to see how produce was grown for Bunratty House, and perhaps finish by browsing the gift shop or relaxing in the traditional tea rooms. Your experience concludes when you leave the complex.

Highly recommend!

We had this activity scheduled for a later day in our week, and changed it to the first day we arrived, all online. Easy! Very organized event. Map is very informative and simple to use. The Castle is amazing!!! We took our time in the morning going in each and every space available. The price through getyourguide is better than the actual venue, which made me very happy. Don’t miss this historical castle!!!
