Visit the most authentic medieval castle in Ireland
Our next stop takes us to Bunratty Castle & Folk Park for 1 3/4 hours.
The exact military site of Bunratty Castle dates to 900AD originally being a Viking fortress and trading post vanquished in 970ad by the legendary military leader Brian Boru who eventually drove the Vikings out of Ireland.
Explore the current castle, the most complete and authentic medieval castle in Ireland construction completed in 1425AD.
Bunratty Castle was a significant military stronghold during the Confederate War also called the 11 years’ war which took place in Ireland between 1641 and 1653. It’s position allowed those who held it to blockade maritime access from Limerick Port and up through the river Shannon. The city of Limerick and the port was held by the Irish Confederates but Bunratty Castle was in the hands of the Roundhead Rear – Admiral Penn, the father of William Penn founder of the city and state of Pennsylvania in America. After a long siege the Irish Confederates were victorious and took the Castle. They spared the life of the surrendering Admiral Penn and allowed him to sail away to Kinsale in Cork and ultimately on to the American colonies.
Find out more about the fascinating history of Bunratty Castle.
Bunratty Folk Park
Your 1 3/4 hour stop at Bunratty will also give you an opportunity to explore the Folk Park. The park features 30 buildings in a “living" village and rural setting. From a fine Georgian House built 1804 to rural farmhouses, village shops and streets recreated in appearance from a time they would have appeared according to the social standing. There is even an example of the poorest of the poor at the time a one room dwelling.
The Village Street is the epicenter of Bunratty Folk Park. Here you will find a collection of brightly coloured shops and buildings side by side. The village houses and shops in the Folk Park have been chosen from many different areas, to form a collection of typical 19th century urban Irish buildings including the School, Doctor’s house, Pawnbrokers, Pub, Drapery, Printworks, Grocery, Hardware shop, Pottery and a Post Office.
The sweet sounds of traditional Irish music is carried in the air and the village characters, including the schoolteacher, policeman and village doctor are on hand to entertain and enthrall all who visit!
