Ennis Town
Only 22 minutes (22.1km) via M18 from Carrygerry House. Ennis is a rare example of a Gaelic medieval town, which means it grew organically without defensive walls.

Much of the hustle and bustle is thanks to the narrowness of the main streets, threaded together by a labyrinth of laneways and bow-ways. (What is a bow-way, we hear you ask. It's actually a uniquely Ennis word, meaning a laneway with a barrel-shaped (arched) covering. We have lots of them.)
