Bunratty Folk Park reopening on Friday week


SHANNON Group has announced the reopening of Bunratty Folk Park from Friday, April 30.

The announcement follows the lifting of Government restrictions for outdoor heritage sites. It will open four days a week initially for residents of Co Clare, as well as Limerick people living within 20 kilometres of the popular
attraction.

Set on 26 acres of Clare countryside, there is plenty of space for social distancing. The 19th century themed Folk Park features a living village and rural setting as it would have appeared at that time.

All visitors are required to pre book at www.bunrattycastle.ie in advance of their visit. To ensure proper social distancing, a one-way system has been designed to guide visitors around the Folk Park.

Commenting on Bunratty Folk Park’s reopening, Vanessa McTigue of Shannon Heritage said: “This year has been incredibly difficult for everyone and we know that people are looking forward to exploring their county. We are delighted to reopen Bunratty Folk Park and look forward to extending a warm welcome to all our visitors. With the Covid safety measures we have in place at Bunratty visitors can be assured of a safe, fun and memorable experience. We are hopeful that following the next easing of restrictions we will be able to reopen our indoor attractions.”
