The mead was fantastic but the food was mediocre tourist fare. Let me admit to being a Medieval recreationist, so I am a bit jaded. The entertainment was good though and I would have loved to have seen more of the castle itself.
I’m not into tourist traps locations and activities , but I read so many good reviews I jumped in . If you are looking for an evening out to get entertainment , learn about their culture , music and eat too, it’s a great choice....More
Our CIE tour group had a medieval banquet at Knappogue Castle, and it was one of many highlights of this great trip. I had low expectations, thinking it might be super-touristy with mediocre food--but in fact it was wonderful. The food was excellent, the atmosphere...More

The dinner program will not have any negative impact on your stay. If you go to the passage way in the back bedroom behind the kitchen, there is a hallway that leads to an area that is just above the banquet room. There is a place there that is covered by a large medieval royal type flag that hides a balcony where you could look down into the dinner area and behind the flag you can enjoy the music. The dining area is not totally sealed off from the living area. Explore have fun
