Bunratty castle/ abbey tavern

On the Shannon heritage tours is the folk park included in the price of the tickets for $50? Or is it just the banquet. Also for abbey tavern are there taxis that can take us there from Dublin? Thank you

Do you mean the Abbey Tavern in Howth? That's an expensive taxi ride. Depending on the day/number of passengers, you'd be looking at around €30 each way. It's about 15km from the city centre. You can either pick a taxi up from any of the city's taxi ranks or get your hotel to arrange on for you. You could also arrange for them to pick up you up for the return journey.

A much cheaper and pretty easy way of getting to Howth is by DART (Dubln Area Rapid Transit) train. You can pick up the DART in the city centre at Connolly Station in the north city centre and Tara Street and Pearse stations in the south city centre. It takes about 30 mins to get to Howth and then it's about a 10 minute walk from the station to the pub. Trains are frequent and the last train from Howth for the city centre departs at 11.55pm. We presume you are going to the show at the Abbey Tavern and this ends at 10.15pm so plenty of time to get back to the station and catch a train back to the city centre. The fare is €4.20 return for adults.

When you come out of the station turn left and walk along the promenade until you come to Abbey Street on your right. Turn into Abbey Street and you'll see the pub on your right.

Sorry, we can't help with your Bunratty question. It's not our area but hopefully some of the local posters will be able to help you out.

As far as I know the price of the banquet does not include admission to the folk park, unless you have a special deal ticket.

We were just there this week and the Bunratty Folk Park admission is not included in with the price of the medieval banquet. We didn't go to the banquet, but thought the Park was very interesting.

We were just at Bunratty in June. The park is not included with the price of the banquet. With that said, make sure you spend the extra money to see the folk park. I think it is well worth it, especially if you are of Irish decent. You will appreciate how our previous generations lived. Have a great time!
