Looking for Bunratty Banquet Tickets

I am striking out trying to get tickets for the Bunratty Castle Banquet on July 2, 2012. Website shows sold out. Any tips on any other ways to get tickets...other vendors, resellers? If not any other recommendations on something near Shannon for memorable last night for Dad and three teens? Thanks!

Wow, they look busy. You won't get tickets anywhere else. Maybe consider contacting them to see if there are any cancellations.

I've had a look at Limerick Race Course and the Greyhound Racing in Limerick and there's nothing doing.

I've also had a look at the University Concert Hall as well - no luck.

Monday night is usually a quiet night in town.

Try Dunguaire Castle Banquet, Kinvara about an hour from Shannon or Knappogue Castle Medieval Banquet, Quin a little closer both through the same Shannon Heritage site.

I think the tour groups buy up tickets. That was my experience with the Folk Park dinner and show in 2009.

I you read McCartheys Bar (Good book and a man with my views on Dingle) there is a section on how climbing over the back wall might get you free admission.

What's that, having similar opinions about Dingle or failing to climb over the castle wall and getting a free invite into a Bunratty Banquet?
