Craggaunowen is a 16th-century restored castle and an archaeological open-air museum in County Clare, Ireland.
On the back of the card: It contains part of the Hunt Collection of medieval art objects. In the grounds of the castle is a reconstructed Crannóg - a Bronze Age lake dwelling and a ring fort - a reconstruction of a farmer's house of the 4th century. Archaeological data from many sources were used in the construction of these exhibits.
