    We happened to see this place on our way to Burren National Park. We had to stop and see what this impressive looking place was so we pulled into the parking lot of a small grocery store with a path leading to the Castle/Friary.

    There is a plaque with historical information and it was a nice walk on the grounds and within the building. If you like reading old tombstones or just looking for a different walk your dog experience this is a good place. It took about an hour.

    The history of the Friary was interesting.
    The remaining structure is well kept.
    Can be viewed easily in one hour.
    Near other points of interest, the Ferguson river and the Clare museum.

    A small but very interesting museum of the local area. Unfortunately the upstairs of the museum was unavailable when we visited. However from what we saw on the ground floor was well worth the visit.

    Beautiful woodland area and very well kept. There are shorter and longer loops. You can even swim in the lake on a nice day! Worth asking the visitor center for a pamphlet on the numbered markers along the route as it gives a great history of the area.

    We were here for the wonderful Book Festival, and it was great to be part of it! A fantastic group of writers, interviewers journalists and interested readers made this a stimulating and moving occasion. Well done to all involved in organising it!

    As a local, despite the sign, there is public right of way, as the descendents of many locals and emigrants are buried there. The sign was wrong, and is now gone, and anyone who follows the obvious path and respects the surroundings is very welcome to visit this serene old abbey and graveyard, founded in 1190.

    I luckily was a volunter during the amazing trad festival & had good times in Flannans College, The Glor Theatre & The Height above O'Connell Street..
    The whole town really buzzed in so many ' musical ' ways with lots of Buskers, Teens & Children all playing Trad Music, Singing their Songs & yes, even dancing.

    Ckare Abbey is well worth your time if you are in the Ennis area. It's a short drive from Ennis centre but it's well signposted. The road has been realigned due to the more recent motorway and bypass but trust the signs abd they'll lead you straight to the small car park at the Abbey.
    It's free to enter and the place is so peaceful. It dates from the 12th centuryand was an Augustinian Abbey.
    Its walls are pretty much all intact although ir is roofless. Some lovely window frames, headstones and crosses.

    The Daniel O'Connell statue towers over central Ennis, a fitting figure to commemorate, the Catholic emancipator or "liberator" who ran for parliament in this constituency. He was the first Catholic to sit in Westminster for a couple of generations and was central to the repeal of the penal laws that discriminated so severely against Catholics throughout the 17th century.
    He stands high on a column and is well worth a stop.
