  • This was a wonderful evening of great entertainment, great food and great company! Highly recommended!

  • Awesome time!

  • A fun family evening. We had expected it to be more entertaining, however we did enjoy the singers and the food was good too. Perhaps there is a better banquet for young families? This was very low key but well done.

  • A wonderful way to spend the evening. Food and entertainment were exceptional.

  • This is a fun exciting evening in an old castle. Come early and see the old town. The banquet was filled with good food, wine, music and story telling. Be prepared to eat with your fingers. A fun evening.

  • So thankful Viator and the Shannon people are so understanding as well as accommodating as we missed our initial reservation and they changed it for us without a fee!
    Lovely banquet, with amazing singing along with harp and fiddle. The food was scrumptious-so flavorful which really surprised us due to the mass dining. Truely a meal fit for royalty!
    Began in the great room with a glass of Mead and music. Then into the grand dining hall for delicious soup with Irish soda bread,, spareribs and then chicken with root veggies and ending with apple dessert. Then there was a half hour of delightful traditional music followed by coffee or tea down in the lower room.
    Highly recommend for all ages!
