Great example of a Franciscan Friary with roots that go back to the early 13th century that has some impressive stone carvings and really friendly and helpful staff. The visitor display area is a sensitive preservation of the original building. Free entry.

We arrived on an overcast morning but the warm welcome of the staff was sunny.
The site echoes its ancient history very well and the signage is well done and informative.
The ongoing conservation work is tastefully done.
The view of the site from the surrounding cemetery is worth seeing.
It’s easy to see it all in about 40 mins.
Well worth the stroll from the town centre.

3.30 Thursday January 23rd. Closed with no
Information about opening hours. Told by a local shopkeeper to ask at the hotel for opening hours! This is an OPW site as far as I know?

We throughly enjoyed admiring the beautiful architectural ruins and reading the informative displays at the Ennis Friary. While there, it was easy to feel that the rest of the world melted away, as we took our time looking closely at the exhibits and ruins and reading all of the informative wall panels.

Also, the friendly staff from the National Monuments Service who were on duty during our visit clearly had passions for history and for serving the public. Both staff members deserve a special shout-out, as they were incredibly helpful in explaining the history of the complex and the surrounding parts of Ennis.

If you want to experience a peaceful place that transports you quietly back to another time, you'll enjoy a visit at the Ennis Friary.

You have to pay 5 eur to get inside but this is an impressive friary. Very well preserved, with some limestone details nicely carved.

It's an old ruin with a new roof, windows, and doors. Going there helps to reserve the old Franciscan ruin in the city. The signs and old decorations are adequate for the price.
