Introducing Bunratty

Conveniently located beside the N18 motorway and with plenty of bus-sized parking, Bunratty (Bun Raite) – home to government schemes for hawking tourism hard – draws more tourists than any other place in the region. A theme park recreates a clichéd Irish village of old (where's the horseshit, lash and disease we ask?) and each year more and more shops crowd the access roads – many selling authentic Irish goods just out of the container from China.

Groups lay siege to Bunratty from April to October.
