Visiting Clare

The SKODA Ring of Clare Cycle is the perfect reason to visit and stay in Ennis and Clare.  Lying on the banks of the River Fergus, Ennis is the bustling capital town of County Clare. The town centre is renowned for its narrow, medieval streets and plentiful bars and restaurants.  Ennis is a thriving market town, with a host of unusual shops with a flair for boutique shopping. This picturesque and historic town enjoys a rich tradition in Irish music and culture.

Previously Clare celebrated its designation as County of Culture and Ennis has hosted the Fleadh Cheoil for two second consecutive years. Traditional music sessions can be enjoyed nightly in many of the town’s bars. Ennis acts as a superb base for Co. Clare’s other major must visit attractions, the Burren, Cliffs of Moher, Bunratty Castle, Loop Head Lighthouse and many more.
