Unterkünfte in Ireland

Our house is...

located in a quiet residential area in Ennis, Co.Clare, Ireland. We are less than a ten minutes walk from town centre, bus and train station. This is a great base for touring the West Coast of Ireland, with easy access to all roads leading to Galway, Kerry and Cork. The Town Centre consists of medieval narrow streets and laneways, which are overshadowed by simple elegant structures. Of the main thoroughfares, Parnell Street has been pedestrianised, while the others, O'Connell Street, Bindon Street and Abbey Street are all one way. The Cathedral of Saint Peter and Saint Paul is situated on the fringe of the old town centre. Worth visiting are the well preserved cloister ruins of Ennis Friary and Clare Abbey, as well as the Clare Museum (also tourist office). Ennis has been a centre for Irish Traditional Music, and since 1974 has hosted the Fleadh Nua in late May each year, the second largest traditional music festival in Ireland. There are other traditional festivals held in the town as well such as the Ennis Trad Festival held annually in November. You'll find lively traditional sessions in many pubs in town.

What to see and what to do in County Clare

Bunratty Castle is just one of several castles in the area all well worth a visit, but it's excellent condition and the adjacing folk park make it a prime tourist attraction. Medieval Banquets take place in these castle sall year round.

A short drive brings you from our house to the Cliffs of Moher, one of the most outstanding coastal features of Ireland. Bird watchers will be fascinated seeing the puffins, fulmers, gillamots and other sea birds nesting a living in this precarious environment. Nearby are the unusual Burren, an area of limestone rock covering round-shaped mountains, and tranquil valleys with gently meandering streams. The extraordinary array of flora and wildlife, the megalithic tombs and monuments, create a tapestry of colour and a seductively magical aura.
Lesser known than the Cliffs of Moher - but equally fascinating and without the crowds - are the Cliffs on Loop Head Peninsula extending from the seaside resort of Kilkee all the way to Loop Head Lighthouse.
The renowned golf courses of Ennis, amp; Lahinch are all in easy reach.
