The food was not great, but I wanted the experience of a Medieval feast...and I thought it was fun. I met such fun people at the long tables....everyone enjoyed the entertainment.
So if it's good food you want, bypass this place. But if you can get there during the day to enjoy the grounds, well that makes it even better.

You know when Brendan recommended this little train wreck we thought "Hey if Brendan says its good then it must be!" WRONG

I would say that if you are a child or have the mind of a small child you might enjoy this "attraction". However if you have any taste at all or prefer to spend a hundred dollars a person on something that really delivers SKIP the BunRATTY Castle Banquet. It was HORRIBLE. The mead they served was nasty. The wine they served was the cheap (probably boxed) variety. The first course was soup. It was bland and you only get a knife with the meal so your choice was to either drink it with your hands or skip it. Okay that was the good part. Then came the ribs. They were so salty you couldn't eat them. They were more FAT than meat. They had this sauce all over them that really made them worse (I didn't know that was possible) than they were and of course you don't have adequate silverware so you end up getting the sauce all over yourself. Needless to say we were looking for another course. Then they announced that chicken was next. I'm thinking okay you can't mess up chicken and they didn't. However they only gave me a wing and a drumette with a huge bowl of vegetables. They rationed them out one per person. All of this for a hundred bucks PER PERSON? Are you kidding???

The wine was so bad that I opted to drink a child's orange drink which tasted like Tang. That was the high point since I like Tang.

The acting was horrendous. There was no dancing. The vocal music was okay. They had a violinist that was okay. He only hit one sour note the whole evening. The food was rotten. The drink was horrible. The whole event resembled some sort of bad Alice In Wonderland nightmare. I wouldn't recommend this poor excuse for entertainment to my worst enemy.

RIPOFF!

We had such a blast at the Bunratty castle feast while in Limerick. I recommend if you are in the area- we took our teenage children and they had so much fun! The actors are very talented and it wasn't cheesy at all!
