A good choice

Good food, attentive service, live music and a pint. Nice! We asked the staff at the Old Ground Hotel to recommend the best pub in Ennis. They told us it was right in the Old Ground itself...Poet's Corner. They may be right. Our first night in the hotel, they delivered dinner to our room in... read more

A popular place even on a Sunday night, we had a pint at the bar while waiting for a pub table. Friendly patrons and staff, cold pints, cozy atmosphere, and ultimately, delicious food made for a memorable evening.

Staying at Old Ground. Pub is part of the hotel and perhaps the best pub in Ennis. Nice menu with a few daily specials offered. Stingy on the drink pours, but made up with quality food and service. Appreciated not being rushed when finished eating.

We had dinner at Poets Corner and it was great. We were offered a drink at the bar whilst we waited for a table. There was a real buzz in the place and it was obvious a lot of locals eat here. Very busy for a Monday night! Within 15 minutes we had our table and apart from the usual... More

Enjoyed dinner in this lively, busy pub. Grilled Seabass was very tasty and the service was timely considering how jumping this place was. Traditional Irish music begins at 8:30 and adds a special touch.

Highly recommend this as a dinner destination for anyone visiting Ennis. The menu is so well done that deciding on a main course might take you a whole Guinness. I went with the Minute Steak w/ caramelized onions on ciabatta bread served with chips. It was absolutely delectable. Other members of my party got the salmon special and the filet... More

Very happy with the meal my family had at this pub. It was a very busy friday evening but didnt have to wait long to get a table for 8 adults and 3 children. The staff were friendly on arrival. The food was perfect (I had the seafood platter, yum) and was impressed that the young waitress brought out the... More

Our last night in Ennis we ate at this pub and were served very rapidly. I had a bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich served with Canadian bacon which surprised me but it was amazingly good. The pub was busy with everyone enjoying themselves. The Irish music began at 8:30 adding to the atmosphere. Whenever we return we will be sure... More
