private personal irish tours ireland - Bunratty Folk Park

Bunratty Folk Park is the wonderfully intriguing Bunratty Folk Park.  Set on 26 acres of unspoilt Clare countryside, Bunratty Folk Park features over 30 buildings in a "Living" museum.  This village is the best way to see how we actually lived hundreds of years ago.  the shops are open, the clothes that the people wear are authentic and the class divide is obvious.

Rural farmhouses, village shops and streets are recreated and furnished as they would have appeared at that time according to their social standing, from the poorest one bedroom dwelling to Bunratty House.  Bun ratty House is a fine example of a Georgian residence built in 1804, home to the Studdarts, the last family to occupy Bunratty Castle.
