Our Weekend Away to Bunratty & Adare

We were really delighted to get away last weekend for two nights. The first night we stayed at Parkhouse B & B in Bunratty. The second night we stayed at the Woodlands Hotel in Adare. Our stay at the Woodlands Hotel was complementary, the rest of the trip was paid for by us.

Bunratty, Co. Clare

We started off our weekend away with lunch at Durty Nelly's, which is literally right next door to Bunratty Castle. They take reservations and have a nice covered outdoor eating area which was ideal since it was hammering rain outside.

After lunch, we walked over to Bunratty Castle and Folk Park and enjoyed 2.5 hours there. Booking in advance is required and you get a set amount of time. Capacity is limited, we only waited in cues a handful of times. We really enjoyed walking around and seeing the different ways people have lived in Ireland over the years.
