It's owned by the hotel, but has a separate kitchen, menu and much better food. (Don't order the four course meal; it's the same as at the hotel.) The setting is much... More

This has always been one of my favourite places to eat in Ennis and it certainly disappoint the last time around. We had a gift voucher for €50 and were pleasantly surprised when we saw that the set menu was €25pps.

Very friendly lady with short black hair met and seated us, if not for her it would be a lower rating, it was a Monday night if that narrows it down, she explained how... More

Town Hall is located in the Old Gound hotel, but with its entrance on the dude street, you'd never know it. Very good choices on wine list. Local lamb offering quite good. Mushroom risotto divine. Overall very nice cafe/bistro. Don't overexpect and you will be thrilled.
