My first night I met locals when I was sitting at the bar (the O'Gradys), and they taught me the tradition of buying rounds of beers until someone leaves. We are friends to this day on social...

had a nice bar food dinner in poets corner, recently. Food very good and a lovely menu only complaint is that the food is served too quickly after order is placed so you feel rushed. Otherwise all good

We had a great start to 2 weeks in Ireland here. Bustling, friendly atmosphere, good blend of locals and guests at the Old Ground Hotel. Our food was delicious -- had the chicken vol au vent and the plaice and chips. Fantastic all around, and delicately poured pints as well.

The Poet's Corner bar is part of the very well-regarded Old Ground Hotel, situated in the middle of Ennis town. The lunch menu here offers a variety of warm/cold sandwiches, soup, chowder, along with a variety of larger meals and a (great!) dessert menu. The evening menu offers plenty of options including some for vegetarians, as well as a variety... More

Nice bar with good food at reasonable prices, in this quaint and lovely hotel. We only had one night in Ennis before our 8 day trip began, but this was a great start...good meal and good night's sleep

Pouring with rain in Ennis, not the weather for sight seeing - what a good thing we found this lovely place. Warm and welcoming, great decor and friendly staff. My husband woofed down the Irish stew, and the seafood chowder was perfect for me. We relaxed with a couple of drinks, idled away an hour or so, and left feeling... More
