Had a lovely family short break in the Old Ground Hotel. Hotel very central. Family room very spacious.
The O'Brien Room restaurant is a traditional and elegant space. The menu offers excellent traditional choices each with a creative twist. Seasonal fresh local produce is used to ensure the best of flavours are brought to each dish.
The Town Hall Bistro is located in one of Ennis's most historical buildings, yet enjoying modern, creative cooking which is very popular with both guests and locals. Excellent coffee and freshly baked scones are enjoyed as a mid morning break and a tasty bistro style lunch menu is served throughout the day. Original art acts decorate the walls, which candlelit tables create a itimate and memorable dining experience.
The Poets Corner is a comfortable bar, where both locals and visitors can enjoy a drink or a story or two. Enjoy a hot Irish whiskey or a pint of Guinness at the bar or in one of the many alcoves. Each weekend entertainment is provided by the best of traditional Irish musicians. Food is served daily until 9pm.
