Walking tour of Ennis with Jane O’Brien

O’Connell Square - Sun 27th May 11.45am

On Sunday morning, experience a journey through time on our Guided Walking Tours through the winding streets of medieval Ennis. Tour guide Jane O’Brien will lead you through the atmospheric streets and ‘bow-ways’ of the town, while revealing the intriguing characters and stories that shaped its history down through the centuries.

 

Lonely Planet
"The best way to explore Ennis is on foot and the best way to
appreciate it is with an expert. This company offers excellent walks that leave from in front of the tourist office."

Frommer's Ireland
"Taking one of Jane O'Brien's Ennis Walking Tours is unquestionably the best possible introduction to the town, its history, and some of its bizarre legends. Jane puts on a highly informative tour, peppering the official history with anecdotal tales that transform sleepy Ennis into a truly intriguing destination...I won't give away the entire tour; suffice to say it's fascinating ***."

Let's Go
"A walking tour of Ennis spices up a portrait of the town as it was
and as it is with local lore and political history. Jane O'Brien garners special praise for her gentle yet commanding presence and spirited stories."

RyanAir Magazine
Named second after the Cliffs of Moher in the top six stops you should make in Irelands West. "The best way to sample the towns history is to join one of Jane
O'Brien's walking tours, which are like a "Journey through time". Described with great warmth and wit, Ennis' colourful past is brought alive - peppered with tales of famine, poverty, murder and rebellion."

Clare Champion
"Jane O'Brien is a natural. With her red hair and friendly personality, she must be a hit with the tourists."

Winner of the 2010 FBD Clare Business Excellence Award for Best Tourism Initiative in Clare.
