Bunratty Castle (Caisleán Bhun Raithe, meaning "Castle at the Mouth of the Ratty River") is a large 15th century tower house in Co. Clare. It is located in the centre of Bunratty Village. The present structure was built by the MacNamara family in 1425.

Today, the castle is a major tourist attraction, along with Bunratty Folk Park. The castle is famous for its medieval banquets, offered since 1963, at which the Bunratty Castle Entertainers perform daily.

Bunratty Folk Park is an open-air museum featuring around 30 buildings, including the Ardcroney Church of Ireland church, moved here and reopened in 1998.
