Ennis, Ireland


Ennis Street Scene

Tonight, I am reporting on the town of Ennis (pop 25,000 ) which is located in County Clare in the west of Ireland, between Galway and Limerick.

Here are things for the visitor to consider:

  • Franciscan Friary dating from 1242,
  • Clare Museum with its emphasis on local history.
  • Interesting residential and commercial architecture.
  • Courthouse and cathedral.
  • Shopping: Many boutiques plus eateries, bars and restaurants.
  • Live traditional music in local pubs.
  • Glor Theatre for entertainment including concerts.

Refer this link for information on Daniel O'Connell, a 19th century campaigner for catholic emancipation who was MP for Clare.

Visitors can chose from a wide range of accommodation providers.
