Bunratty Castle is a 15th century tower house located in the village of Bunratty in County Clare, Ireland. It sits right next door to Durty Nelly's, the pub I showed here yesterday (in fact, you can see part of Durty Nelly's just above the heads of the people standing in the entrance gate in the first photo). Bunratty Castle is the most complete and authentic medieval fortress in Ireland. It was built in 1425 and restored in 1954. I took the first four photos from the back side of the castle. We then walked around the side of it to the front where I took the last four shots before going into the pub. The castle and its adjoining folk park was overrun with schoolchildren on fields trips the day we visited, so we made the decision to visit the pub for lunch instead and I'm glad we did!
