Ennis Walking Tour
Time & Distance
Tours usually start at 11:00am and last approximately 75 minutes. Check the webpage calendar for availability. We walk approx. one mile at a moderate walking pace, stopping at various points along the tour.
We meet outside the Ennis Tourist Office which is just off the main square in the center of the town. Arthurs Row laneway, beside the O’Connell monument in the main square, leads to a courtyard which is shared by the Ennis Tourist Office, the Clare Museum and the Temple Gate Hotel. The tour meets in this courtyard.

Tours are run by the owner/operator of Ennis Walking Tours, Dr Jane O’Brien. An expert guide with a Masters in local history and a History PhD from the University of Galway, she has been running tours of Ennis since 2005 but it is also Janes storytelling skills that bring the vibrant past of the town alive for all who join her tours. Read more on your guide.
For medium to large sized groups the guide uses a small microphone amplifier to ensure that all the group can hear clearly. Also all stopping points have plenty of room for the group to gather.
The tour is wheelchair accessible – the route is mainly on flat ground with kerbstone dips available along the route.
Gratuities are always appreciated, but never expected.
