About the neighbourhood
Tulla is a picturesque village situated on high ground, 14 km/9 miles east of Ennis. The highest point in the area is Maghera Mountain, while north of Tulla is Asalpnagown with its excellent forest walks. West of the village is Cullane Wood in the grounds of Cullane House and within a short distance is the old demesne of Kiltanan. Close to the estate there is an underground stream and some limestone caves called ‘The Toumeens’. Tulla is a noted fishing centre and known as the Clare Lakelands, with a number of small lakes ringing the village. Traditional music features strongly in the area and the Tulla Céili Band is one of the best known céilí bands in the country. In 1946, local musicians came together and formed the band – and they have since made several successful tours abroad to Irish venues in the United States and England. Tulla also has a pipe band which can be heard every New Year’s Eve in the village. Tulla now boasts a state of the art playground – always an ideal way to entertain active children for free.
