Of particular importance are King John’s castle, built between the 12th and 16th century and St Mary’s cathedral, built c.1172. Othe highlights include the Old Exchange facade and Almshouses, located on King’s island. Close by are Bunratty castle and folk park, one of Ireland’s leading tourist attractions.
