Bunratty ©
Unequivocally dedicated to tourism, the small village of Bunratty remains best known for its medieval castle, indisputably the most visited attraction in the region.
Go for a jaunt from Bunratty to Limerick to see Terranova Gardens about 42 minutes away. There's still lots to do: step into the grandiose world of Bunratty Castle & Folk Park, look for gifts at The Lawrence Collection, don't miss a visit to Shannon Heritage, and take an in-depth tour of Craggaunowen.

For traveler tips, photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, you can read our Bunratty trip itinerary maker app.
