Céilí in the kitchen cooks up a storm in Bunratty

Bunratty Céilí entertainers Conor Casey, Caherdavin; Jack Rohan, Castleconnell; Sinead McGuinness, Pallaskenry and Aoife Hennessy, Raheen.

VISITORS to Bunratty Castle and Folk Park will be transported back to a time of traditional Irish hooley with a new show replicating the experience of an impromptu village nighttime get together.

Céilí in the Kitchen, which takes place in the Corn Barn on the grounds of the 26-acre folk park, features the talents of the finest traditional musicians, dancers, and singers in the West of Ireland along with a traditional dining experience.

Shannon Heritage Marketing Manager Adrienne O’Flynn said that the Céilí in the Kitchen was devised by the entertainment  team at Bunratty to transport visitors back to rural Irish life in the early 20th century.

“A céilí or seisiún in an Irish kitchen would see friends, neighbours, and family all come together for a night of food, lamentations, music, singing and dancing.

“The response from the audience has been fantastic, and we have seen a real appetite for a night of music and a celebration of togetherness, especially after the past two years when people were staying at home more often.

“We are fortunate to have an incredibly talented team of performers and musicians, who have toured with the world renowned Riverdance show and performed for royalty. If you enjoy traditional Irish music and dance, you will really enjoy this show.”

Guests are welcomed by the “Fear an Tí” to an evening  of laughter and entertainment after a feast of Irish cuisine, house wines and great company.

The show takes place every Tuesday and Friday at 7pm. Bookings at www.bunrattycastle.ie
