Origins of the Show

Established in 1963, the Bunratty Castle Medieval Banquet was the brainchild of local visionary Dr Brendan O'Regan. The idea of medieval banquets came about as a result of the need to give transatlantic passengers a reason to get off aircraft at Shannon Airport, located only a few kilometres from the castle, and tour the local area. 

Now 60 years on the Burnatty Castle Medieval Banquets are considered one of the longest running and prestigious dining experiences in Ireland. Enjoyed over the years by international dignities, celebrities, US Presidents and First Ladies, they are a must on any itinerary to Ireland.

Welcoming guests from all over the world, we now invite you to join us for an evening of great Irish music, song, food and merriment in the unique and dramatic surrounds of one of Ireland's most iconic landmarks.
