We really enjoyed our visit. The museum is a great size. A good summary of the character of the county and its people. It's right in the centre of lovely Ennis and there is plenty of easy parking nearby.

This free museum provides good basic knowledge on County Clare with its history and attractions. It also has a knowledgeable receptionist who can provide tourist and travel information. She is very pleasant and helpful for restaurant and lodgings information.
