Bunratty Castle, built in the 15th Century by the Earl of Thomond, stands on the banks of the Rathy River in Clare. During his rule, the Earl was known for hospitality and regularly lavished his guests with entertainment. The Bunratty Medieval Banquet is now held twice nightly throughout the year harking back to the Earl’s extravagant banquets.

A kilted piper provides a musical welcome to guests coming from the Bunratty Folk Park, through to the banquet halls, which are decorated with tapestries and furniture of the 16th Century. Guests can partake of a goblet or two of mead. The butler relays the captivating history of Bunratty and the castle singers lilt. After the Earl and Lady are crowned for the evening and descended through the halls, guests are seated at long wooden tables illuminated by candle light for their four course meal – a pleasant balance of contrasting Irish meat dishes served during the period. Music and song is played throughout the course of your meal.

Post dinner entertainment is provided with a selection of Irish medieval and traditional songs and instrumental music by eleven entertainers making this a banquet fit for an Earl.
