Now in its 13th successful year of business Ennis Walking Tours is an exciting tourism initiative which runs lively and entertaining guided walking tours through the winding streets of the medieval town of Ennis in Co Clare. Jane - the experienced local guide - leads you through the atmospheric winding streets and "bow-ways" of the town, while revealing the intriguing characters and stories that shaped its history. Hear about the mythology and legends of the town - from banshees to Biddy Early (the magical lady of Clare who was tried for witchcraft in Ennis). Hear tales of murders and hangings, famine and poverty, rebellions and riots and discover how the most powerful men from Irelands past - amongst them Daniel O'Connell, Eamon de Valera and Charles Stewart Parnell 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.

Jane O'Brien was lovely - knowledgeable, professional, friendly, prepared. We had less than 1 day in Ennis and this was definitely time well spent. Jane led us on an informative tour of Ennis - stopping at and highlighting the main historical locations, features, and stories.
