Hear about the mythology and legends of the town. Hear tales of murders and hangings, famine and poverty, rebellions and riots and discover how the most powerful men from Irelands past were closely linked to the town. There is an option to finish the tour in the comfortable setting of a local pub and learn more about Clare's unique contribution to the traditional Irish music scene.In addition to this tour Jane also runs pre-booked Haunted History Tours and Gourmet Tours (A Taste of Ennis). Please contact her for more information.
