Ennis, situated on River Fergus, is the capital of Clare County in mid-west Ireland. The county is clearly defined with low rolling farmland, lakes and a coastline with sea stacks rising from the sea.
The county town of Ennis has a pleasant climate with mild winters and warm summers. As a result, any time is ideal for a visit to this place.
Founded as a market town around the castle of the O'Briens of Thomond in 1250, Ennis, with about 24,200 inhabitants, is fast developing as an administrative centre and tourist attraction. It has also earned the title of an ‘Irish Technology Town’.

Overall Guide : The most outstanding attraction of the town is the old Franciscan structure of the Ennis Abbey, notable for its tomb-sculpture. ‘The Cloister on Abbey Street’ built into the walls and garden of Ennis Abbey, is one of Ireland’s finest hotels.... more The Pro-Cathedral of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, the Ennis Friary constructed in 1242, St. Columba’s Church and a monument dedicated to Irish national hero Daniel O'Connell are some of the other noteworthy monuments here. Late in May each year, Ennis hosts the Fleadh Nua, which is the second largest traditional music festival in Ireland. The Ennis Trad Festival held in November is a treat for exponents of traditional Irish music of the highest quality, in its most natural setting. The County Show, in July every year, witnesses horses and livestock competing for coveted titles, along with other arts and crafts events and games for children.

Overall Guide : Ennis is a beautiful town to live in but also to visit. With fine cuisine overlooking River Fergus, a variety of shops, some amazing walks. Not many people know this but Ennis is a shape of a Human Heart, hence... more lovely people who are extremely sensitive.
Not to be missed Clare Museum , Walking tours , Glor Theatre

Overall Guide : Ennis is small enough to walk around, so lack of public transportation is not an issue. I loved the city and the friendliness of the people. Don't miss P. Lucas Pub - just a local pub with friendly bartender and... more patrons.
Not to be missed Hurling! , P. Lucas Pub , Clare Abbey
