A great place to see history, learn about Bunratty Castle, the folk park had shops as well and we were able to purchase Christmas type gifts and ornaments.

Oh this was a wonderful place! Very well done. They have brought in authentic historic dwellings of different types, from a simple 1800s farm dwelling of the west Ireland area, to the large minor gentry home. It is set up such that you feel you...More

Shannon Heritage are responsible for the management and running of the Craggaunowen Pre historic Park but I'm afraid it's all about Bunratty Folk Park or the castle banquet with then. Craggaunowen is an amazing attraction and is very poorly advertised by Shannon Heritage. You guys...More

The castle is a very well maintained castle which holds medieval banquets but is open for tourists, not cheap at Euro16.95 but it does include the old Irish village, great for kids & adults. Not for those with any walking difficulties, the steps in the...More

Yes, very much so. A well restored medieval castle and also a preserved village is a fascinating insight into Irish history. As long as he is not a 10yr old locked to his tablet!

No 2 separate prices. We are Aussies and had never done anything like this before. Personally I preferred the dinner to the park. I would go again best interaction I have ever had!
