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, 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.
