What a way to spend an evening in Ennis but at the Poet's Corner pub within the Old Ground Hotel. My wife and I enjoyed a few drinks while listening to the lovely Irish music being performed by four local musicians.

Food was well done. Nice atmosphere. Service was what we came to expect throughout Ireland, not very attentive. You need to flag down the server, because they will not ask you. Much different than the States because of tipping.
