Sixteenth century Dunguaire Castle was purchased and restored by Christobel Lady Ampthill in the late fifties, and subsequently became one of the three castles at which Shannon Development operates Medieval Banquets.
Dunguaire banquets, featuring entertainment which draws extensively on the literary associations of the castle’s location, commenced in 1966, three years after Bunratty Castle had commenced operation. Up to the end of last season, Dunguaire banquets had attracted approximately 60,000 visitors.
