Interesting way to spend an evening. Medieval themed dinner with costumed entertainers. Dinner was good and plentiful and we appreciated that wine was included. Yes, you're sitting with strangers but make the most of it and make some new friends.

The banquet was fine and the entertainment was great. My problem was that the benches we sat on for the meal were for 6 people but the management squeezed 7 people onto each bench. It was difficult to raise your arms to eat. For 60...More

You can book through the website. TA won't let me post the link so just Google Bunratty Castle Banquet. The website is called Shannon Heritage. It is very easy.
Is there any wheelchair access? probably a tall order as it's a castle but worth asking I think .
