Knappogue Castle Medieval Banquet

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Arrive a little before the starting time of your banquet at Knappogue Castle in Ennis, so you won’t miss a thing. Please note the characters you meet throughout the night are playing a part of someone who might have existed during the medieval times.

    This 2.5-hour banquet is being thrown for all the “guests” by the Earl. Be greeted at the castle’s front entrance by the Earl’s Butler and the ladies of the castle. They’ll take you over to Dalcassian Hall, where you can mingle with the castle entertainers, and try your own goblet of mead (a honey wine).

    During this experience, be serenaded by Irish music, and watch traditional Irish dances. Hear stories about the castle’s history, and enjoy a 4-course meal by candlelight in a traditional medieval banquet hall with long wooden tables and wooden benches. You’re in store for a lovey night filled with food, friendship, music, and a few surprises.

    Please see the Itinerary below for the menu.

    This was a part of our tour with CIE and I enjoyed the music, food, beverages and entertainment. The dancers and singers were fabulous. One could imagine being a part of the festivities centuries ago.
