Bunratty Castle, Ireland

Photograph by Christopher Hill, National Geographic

A popular attraction, Bunratty Castle in County Clare is a well-restored castle built around 1460. It has a splendid keep where nightly "medieval banquets" are held. Visitors can quaff mead and eat with their fingers while minstrels serenade the diners and serving wenches bustle about with platters and jugs.
