Christmas at Bunratty Castle
Stay At The Lady Gregory Hotel
Stay at the Lady Gregory Hotel and experience Christmas Trail of Lights 2021 this Christmas at Bunratty Castle & Folk Park. With a little sprinkling of magical fairy dust over this quaint little corner of County Clare Santa has created a magical illuminated festive trail for all to enjoy! Experience an enchanted walk through the winter woodlands and twinkling lights of Bunratty Folk Park and you never know you might even catch a glimpse of the big man in the red suit before he jets off to his workshop in the North Pole!
Santa Claus, still mindful of social distancing, will be making a special visit to the drawbridge of Bunratty Castle to deliver a very special Christmas message for all the boys and girls, promising that he will be visiting them on Christmas Eve before taking off to his workshop in the North Pole leaving his most important personnel in the park to hold down the fort in his absence.
Pop by the Golden Vale Farmhouse and say hello to Mrs Claus as she busily prepares for Christmas Day. Take a stroll past the Corn Barn where Santa has relocated some of his “COE’s” (Chief Operating Elves) and watch them as they build and wrap Christmas gifts in preparation for Christmas Eve! The Village Street, as always, will be illuminated for the occasion with seasonal characters, including Scrooge, The Grinch, The Fairy Princess and Jack Frost on hand to enthral and entertain you as you make your way through the magical festive trail.
Also for 2021, the ever popular Bunratty Polar Express Train will return. Hop on board the Bunratty Polar Express and enjoy a magical train ride through the woodland wonderland that is Bunratty Folk Park. Passing the enchanting fairy village, the twinkling lights of Bunratty House and Ardcrony Church with many more delightful displays inbetween.
