Knappogue Castle, owned and managed by Shannon Heritage, was once open for public tours. Though the walled garden is still available to visitors, there are only two ways into the castle: the nightly Medieval Banquet from April – October or via castle rental, for an event or lodging.
During our 3 night stay at Knappogue I had the honor of chatting with two of the ‘Ladies of Knappogue' – Lady Alison and Lady Caroline – as well as popping into the nightly medieval banquet for a bit of craic to end the evening. Enjoy the video below for a ‘behind the scenes' look at the Medieval Banquet at Knappogue Castle.
And speaking of behind the scenes….
Let me take you into the Knappogue Castle most visitors don't see! Beyond the banqueting hall and up the towers stairs!
Have you visited Knappogue Castle? Did you explore the grounds or enjoy the Medieval Banquet?
Sometimes I think Ireland is best in the rain. Well, not a lashing rain, but a lovely, soft, sparkling rain. 🙂 The walled garden behind the castle is a great surprise- such a quiet place.
