Prepare to experience village life in 19th century Ireland!
The Public House
MacNamara and Sons at the top of the village street is a fully licensed working pub in the style of an old fashioned hotel bar and provides modern catering facilities. Be sure and drop into Mac’s for a pint! The pub is furnished to reflect the lifestyle of the time and the fact that the publican not only sold drink, in former times, but also traded in groceries and hardware.
Irish Wolfhounds have inhabited Ireland long before the arrival of Christianity and the written word. They are known for being gentle, friendly and very intelligent, and our two resident Irish Wolfhounds, Meabh and Saoirse, are proof of this, and are much loved by all who visit!
From our Traditional Irish Night to our Medieval Banquet, Bunratty has world class musicians who play everything from the fiddle to the harp, and who are sure to entertain! You may also be lucky enough to hear them play Traditional Irish music in the Folk Park throughout the day!
Join our Bean an Ti’s in the Golden Vale Farmhouse to watch them as they prepare Irish Wholemeal Brown Bread, delicious Fruit Scones, Griddle Cake & Shannon Soda Bread, some of which are cooked at the hearth, on the griddle or in the ‘Bastible’ (covered pot), in which embers are raked under and over to create a pot-oven.
