It was Sunday night. Raining outside. We were a group of four who wanted to have a quiet chat. There was trad music down further in the bar. We enjoyed a drink and a chance to unwind after a lot of travelling.

Standard pub with average food. Busy and noisy but what you would expect in an Irish pub. Conveniently located on the first floor of the Old Ground hotel. Nice decor.

Do not miss music nights at Poet's Corner. The musicians are incredible and the performance is real-- how often do you get to see real talent these days? Seriously, this place is a gem! Must not be missed.

Poets corner is an institution in Ennis, one that I hadn't visited in a while. Having had some spare time today I decided not to wait any longer to dine in this prestigious establishment. On entering the bar I found it busy with very attentive staff. I found a free seat and had my order taken within minutes by a... More

I frequently visit this bar for lunch/dinner with my friends. The staff are very attentive even though it's usually busy and they are run off their feet. The food never fails to disappoint. There's always a great atmosphere around and I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

We didn’t stay at the adjoining hotel, only called in to this bar for dinner. Our table was in a bad spot – right next to doors which were opening and shutting continually, however, the bar was very busy and we were lucky to get a table. Unfortunately, there was no traditional music to stay around for after dinner. Traditional... More

We received several recommendations for this bar. It is charming and brimming with life. It is a local favorite for the quick service, warm welcome and great food. We stopped for a quick bowl of soup and a pint. We sat at the bar and were asked what we wanted to drink immediately. Two pints on the way and we... More
