Last Sunday we were on a sort of getaway in Bunratty castle & folk park. It was quite exciting to feel the atmosphere of medieval ages in the castle and walk around the recreated 18th century village. So, if you are anywhere near Limerick city, want to enjoy the time out with your family and see Ireland the way it was over a century ago, this is the place to go.
The village features rural farmhouses and shops, streets, mills, a school, a pub and a lot more. You can walk into every house and even sit down on a chair near the open fire. A lot of them felt like home. You walk in, breath in and feel the smell of your grandparent's place. And it brings the smile to your face. That's how good it feels over there.
In the Golden Vale Farmhouse you can try some fresh baked (the old way, on a stand with coals underneath it) soda bread with melted butter (emmmmm....) and even some apple pie if you are lucky! Kids won't be bored either. They can pet a pony or chase little chickens! )))
