Day 1 -
Bunratty Castle - Cliffs of Moher
Visit Bunratty castle and Folk Park. The castle was built in the early 1400s, with a complete retauration in modern times. It offers a fine collection of the 14th to the 18th-century furniture, painting and wall hangings.
At night-time, the Castle is the impressive setting for medieval banquets which are held year-round subject to demand.
Have a walk through the Folk Park, a reconstructed traditional Irish village. Set on 26 acres, the impressive Park features over 30 buildings in a ‘living village’ setting. Included are a display of 19th century agricultural machinery (the Talbot Collection), eight farmhouses, two watermills, a blacksmiths forge and a church.
A restored village street complete with pub, post office, school, doctor’s house, hardware shop, printers, drapery shop, pawn shop and village hotel provides the main focal point for the park.
Traditional skills of the period are put to everyday use in the settings in which they were nurtured. On your visit, you can see crafts such as bread baking, weaving and pottery making.

Admire the majestic cliffs of Moher, rising from the Atlantic Ocean to a height of nearly 655 feet and extend for a distance of 5 miles from Hag's Head due west of Liscannor to a point beyond O'Brien's Tower. They take their name from a ruined promontory fort, Mothar, which was demolished during the Napoleonic wars to make room for a signal tower.
