If you’re in County Clare on Ireland’s west coast and looking for a fun evening, look no further than Bunratty Castle Medieval Banquet.
Bunratty is a small village located between Limerick and Ennis, south of Galway and quite near Shannon and Shannon airport. The castle is part of the Bunratty Folk Park.
During many trips to Ireland over the years, I avoided Bunratty’s medieval feast, viewing it as too touristy. Now, after enjoying a wonderful evening there, I’d go back again. It’s just that much fun.
Bunratty Castle serves up an affordable, really fun evening as well as a four-course medieval feast in the Castle’s Great Hall. Although once only enjoyed only by the nobility who resided in the 15th-century castle, to date more than 3 million people have enjoyed it.
The food and wine are good, and the entertainment excellent. You’ll remember the evening for a long time.
