Ennis Things to Do

Be prepared to be blown away by the magnificent architecture of Dromoland Castle, a fairly new construction (as castles go) in Ireland with unbelievable gardens. Take time for a coffee at the on-site cafe.
The Clare museum has various items on display from the County Clare region. They have a very interesting collection of stone age axes, you will also find an interesting exhibit about J P Holland the inventor of the submarine. Admission is free.
Walking through Ennis, you will get to O’Connell square with the monument to Irish nationalist hero Daniel O’Connell which stands atop a tall column, the site of the old courthouse where he won the Clare by-elections in 1828. You will see this monument from quite a distance.
