The plan is to create a new experience on the lower levels and to move some of the historic collection from the upper rooms of the castle to the lower area and to create a virtual walkthrough with interactive screens.There are proposals for four sculptures within the parks as well as experiential and interactive features in some of the buildings in the village.The proposals will require some demolition including the exiting educational building and there are also plans to extend the car-park to accommodate the anticipated increase in visitor footfall.Walkways, a picnic area and a new playground are also part of the Bunratty plans.The application is currently with the planning authority.
