Bunratty Castle & Folk Park

Three visitor experiences in one - Bunratty Castle, the 19th century Bunratty Folk Park and the Village Street. The Castle is the most complete and authentic medieval fortress in Ireland. Built in 1425 it was restored in 1954 to its former medieval splendour and now contains mainly 15th and 16th century furnishings, tapestries, and works of art which capture the mood of those times.

Within the grounds of Bunratty Castle is Bunratty Folk Park where 19th century life is vividly recreated. Set on 26 acres, the impressive park features over 30 buildings in a ‘living’ village and rural setting. Meet and chat with the Bean an Ti (Woman of the House) and various street characters including the Policeman and Schoolteacher who give the site its sparkle during the summer months.

Opening Time:

Open all year except 24-26 Dec. 9am-5.30pm (last admission 4.15). Last Admission to Castle 4pm.

Admission Charge:

Adult €15; Children €9; Family (2 Adult + 2 Children): €33.60
