If you are touring Ireland this is a must see. A days outing accompanied by a dinner and show in the evening. Bunratty Castle and Folk Village has been a highlight of our trip to Southern Ireland. So enjoyable for all ages, a great insight into the history of this area and the music and dancing of the evening show was outstanding.”

We went down for the day - family with 2 kids (3 and 6) - we loved it and will return - price was 15 euro for each adult with free parking - they did not charge for the kids. Its a whole day to potter around, but worth it, bring a packed lunch, lunch at macs was good put pricey.”
