Yeah, the Poet's Corner does pretty decent food and is one of my favourites for bar food.
Brogan's is quite popular as Tony says.
I guess if you are doing day trips, you will probably eat while you are touring around the coast.
There will be no shortage of restaurants all along the coast from Ballyvaughan to Lahinch and further on.
Most of the restaurants in Ennis are doing very good value early bird menus, so you might not have to restrict yourself to bar food.
One of my favourites at the moment is the Dining Room at the top of the Market area(they do quite good value for 2 courses)
You will be spoilt for choice both in Ennis and up the coast.
