A little find in the heart of Ennis. My 6 year old found it very interesting and enjoyed the idea of the turf and puctures of olden times

I enjoyed this charming museum that is easily reached by foot in the great walking town of Ennis. I especially enjoyed the exhibit about water and holy wells, and also enjoyed seeing artifacts about fishing and the port. The museum is free. Be aware that it is closed for lunch. An Ennis information center is located on the ground floor.... More

It's centrally located and entrance is free. The information center is located on the same ground floor. There are lovely artifacts, stones and interactive displays with voice or music. Be sure to go up to the second story as you might overlook it--stairs or elevator. The guards are super friendly and interested in their visitors.

This is a free museum in central Enid but is has a blackout period in the middle of the day. Good for county history.

As we were staying in Ennis, we thought we should visit and we were not disappointed. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The exhibitions were really interesting and well presented, As a bonus it was free to enter but I would gladly have paid

Very interesting material and displays about Ennis town and Clare county. What's more, it's all free, no charge. Located in town centre, on Arthur's Row lane, just off O'Connell Square
