The Shannon Region boasts an enviable array of historic attractions from pre-historic recreations such as Craggaunowen Park to modern historic attractions such as the Foynes Flying Boat Museum. Craggaunowen Park recreates pre-historic and early Christian living conditions, showcasing stunning recreations of homesteads and artifacts from over 1,000 years ago. The Foynes Flying Boat Museum tells the story of Pan Am’s transatlantic flying boat that visited the area in the 1940’s. With VIP’s such as JFK and Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt on board! No trip to Ireland would be complete without a visit to one of our medieval castles such as Bunratty Castle or St. Marys Cathedral.

Within a short walk from the hotel there are also several notable historic visitor attractions. St. Johns Castle is located on an island in the river Shannon, overlooking the city. This castle gives visitors a treasured glimpse of life in medieval times.
