History and Folklore of Ballybunion

Ireland's history dates back thousands of years, but it is only since the Celts arrived (from around 600 B.C.) that language and culture really flourished. Since then, almost every town has been steeped in folklore and legend. Ballybunion has had more than its share of both. From invading Vikings and serpent-slaying monks, to ritual sacrifices and pitch battles on fair days, there's hardly a place you can walk around this sea-side haven that doesn't have a story to tell!
