Ennis, County Clare: 2 reviews and 2 photos

by donpaul77

Ennis is a beautiful, bustling old town and is often overlooked when people are touring Ireland. Ennis is rich in history and culture and is abundant in shopping and restaurants. The old center is fun to walk around as the streets are narrow and wandering. You can really discover things here, like a unique shop hidden down an alley or traditional music in a cozy pub. Ennis has a harmonius balance of history, charm and energy.

Ennis is a great place for music and hosts the Fleadh Nua every year. Most of the year you can find traditional music just about every night. You can always stop in at Custy's Music shop and ask if and where there might be a session on.

Some of the many nice pubs and restaurants to check out are Brogan's Pub, Cruises Pub (great music), "Sicilian Restaurant", and the Town Hall Cafe. Check my other tips for more detail on this stuff.

Ennis is a must if you are traveling in Clare. You will really enjoy exploring this lively town.

Address: Co. Clare, West of Ireland
Directions: I recommend parking in either Glor lot or Dunne's Stores lot and garage (self service pay lots). You can also find street parking, but you will still have to pay.
