Bunratty Castle, not far from Shannon Airport. Medieval Banquet at Bunratty Castle. (See my other pages on Ireland.) Durty Nelly's Pub, great place to dine on the River Shannon. You can rent a houseboat and take a cruise on the River . Bunratty Castle Village with adjoining Theme Park is a short drive from Shannon Airport. This may be your first stop on your way to your B&B. Make your reservations for the Medieval Banquet online before you leave for Ireland. If you travel via Shannon Airport, schedule your banquet for your last night in Ireland. Will be a good memory for your journey home next day. Can use taxi services if you want to turn in your car before this last night.

Durty Nelly's Pub

Durty Nelly's Pub is the yellow structure in the shadow of the castle. It is a large restaurant with a formal dining room as well as a small cozy bar. Touristy shops across the road. A nice walk around and along the river.
