First was Bunratty Castle and folk park, an extensive park full of Irish history from various time periods. We got to tour the entire Bunratty Castle which was renovated and decorated in period furniture. The rest of the park was set up like a village, featuring farmhouses, a fisherman’s home, blacksmiths workshop, a tea room (with ladies baking fresh scones), a school house, shops and more. It was fun to see how people lived.
I’ll let the photos to do some talking….
