    Bunratty Castle carvings

    If you look around this room, you will find these carvings set on a wall, near the North Solar (a “Solar” was used during the middle ages to describe an upper chamber). The small carving is supposed to be of a fertility god. Be careful, they say that if you sit under this carving, you, or your partner, will become pregnant rather quickly!

    Bunratty Castle basement

    The Castle décor has period furniture and decorations from the 14th – 17th centuries, with every room having something different to check out. The Castle was originally abandoned and fell derelict in the last century. In the 1950’s, Lord Gort renovated it back to its original state. The full story of how this came about can be found in the basement of the Castle.
