On Day 4 of my vacation to Ireland, I managed to visit one of the historical landmarks which is the Bunratty Castle & Folk Village. Bunratty Castle actually means The castle at the mouth of Ratty. It was built around 1275 and it is simply magnificent! If you want more info on the castle you can always visit HERE
Around the castle there is a folk village which shows on how the villagers lived and thats where the fun is at! There is also a small farm where there are animals and equipment to harvest crops so on.
So without further to do, I'll start up with the Folk Village around Bunratty Castle
The children's playground.
It looks so different compared to the ones in Malaysia
