Jane was very welcoming and soon had the group relaxed. She was able to inform us about the various parts of the town we visited and to answer all the questions thrown at her. It was a fascinating insight into Ennis and an excellent introduction to the town and wider Irish history. Thank you.

I recently went on a walking tour of Ennis with Jane as my guide and it was one of the most informative and enjoyable tours I have ever experienced. Jane was exceptional from start to finish, her level of knowledge about the town of Ennis and it's rich history was extremely intriguing. She took myself and the other members of the group on an easy pace stroll through the narrow streets, where we could gaze upon buildings that were hundreds of years old. She told us factual stories about events which took place in Ennis that had major historical implications, both nationally and internationally. She did it all with a soft-spoken, soothing toned voice, which you could listen to all day! and most enjoyably, she left me wanting to know more about Ennis and its fast history. I would most definitely recommend this tour to anyone traveling to Ennis, looking to unwind for an hour and listen to charming stories about an enchanting medieval town.
