What an exceptional experience

This was a great experience, missed my scheduled ticket yesterday and very kindly changed to today, everything I thought it would be and more, so fantastic to see a wonderful piece of Irish history being restored to its former glory, by the wonderful people of Clare, it’s a credit to you, pity a lot of the wonderful buildings throughout Ireland’s have been let go to ruin, but wonderful to see the beautiful craftsmanship, and history of ireland all put into one place, exceptional and a must visit, thank you to the people of Clare for keeping our historic buildings alive, for all to see! Fantastic experience, thank you for your service

This place is extremely interesting to visit. Be sure to allow enough time -- four hours isn't enough. Visit the castle first since it closes earlier than the rest of the park.

This was not a guided tour, but a self-catering one. It afforded me the opportunity to go at my own pace, to look at what I wanted and to move along from things that I didn't. There was plenty to look at from the castle itself, several cottages, a Main Street, animals and shops. I would definitely recommend the Castle and Folk Park to other people who are traveling to Shannon.
