This is the second medieval banquet I've been to in Ireland. The food was excellent and the story telling too. This is a much smaller more intimate banquet compared to Knappogue Castle, but I liked it just the same. Be careful not to miss the...More

Wonderful experience with beautiful voices and amazing harpist. Food was delightful but the stories and music made the trip worthwhile. They even presented one of our party with a Claddaugh ring.

Our whole family enjoyed the meal and entertainment in a relatively intimate setting. A large tour group seemed to get slightly preferential treatment (e.g., seated first, selected for audience participation) but we had fun chatting with other independent travelers seated at our table. Anyone over...More

It is really whatever you want to wear. I dressed up a bit, in a dress but it was cold and I wore capris under it! Most everyone was very casual!

There is no dress code, at least none I saw posted. Everyone in our tour group had on whatever they started with for the day.

If you have a choice choose Bunratty castle over this one for the medieval banquet experience.
