Get to know Ennis (no more "I wish I knew this before")

This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel. We share our insider knowledge of tips, tricks and important things to look out for in Ennis.

Ennis is a tiny town in Ireland in the county of Clare. This village can be found in the west of the country and is a popular tourist destination. It is not one that is known for adventurous activities, but rather for the picturesque streets, old architecture, ruins, diverse culture, and local beauty. It is one of the oldest inhabited parts of the country, with roots to prehistoric civilization.

If you have the time, start a conversation with the owner of the hostel in which you are staying. They will be very open to describing the local history and giving you directions to the many sights in the town and around it. Whether you want to go to the local pub or to the museum in town, you are bound to get help at the hostel.

One of the best ways to learn about the town is to take a walking tour through it. These can be booked in town and are available throughout the year. Ask your hostel manager where the tourist information center is and embark on the hour-long expedition on foot through the streets of Ennis. Notable figures you learn about on the tour include Eamon de Valera, one of the major figures in the fight for Ireland’s independence from Britain.

To learn more about the local history, you should visit the Clare Museum in Ennis. This old museum has pieces dating back 6000 years. Some of the pieces on display include archaeological artifacts and set exhibits that talk about the uses of certain objects. You can learn much about how the culture of the people in Ennis and Clare today was influenced by the ancient settlers. Other historic sites near the museum include the 13th-century Friary ruins. When the day is done, take a walk down to the local pubs to unwind and hear all the local gossip and news.
