As the principal town of County Clare, Ennis has everything it takes for a fun-packed family holiday. The former market town is now a thriving place of business with shopping, leisure and swimming centres, cinema, restaurants, brasseries, bars and hotels. But at the same time, there's a captivating historic air about Ennis with its narrow, winding streets and alleys, some dating back to medieval times, its atmospheric old buildings and monuments, its museums, and its celebration of Irish music and dance. These traditions are enjoyed everywhere - in pub sessions and singalongs, in concert venues and theatres, and at any number of festivals held throughout the year, most famously the eight-day Fleadh Nua gathering. Ennis loves its festivals, and in addition to musical events, it hosts literary, arts and family festivals, street parties, and the Spancil Hill Fair, a long-established horse fair. Sightseers are invited to join walking tours of the town, taking in all the great landmarks, or to explore the Riverside Sculpture Walk, which follows the River Fergus through Ennis. Outdoor enthusiasts are well placed to discover Clare's spectacular coastline and countryside, or to take part in activities ranging from golf and horse-riding to fishing, boating and water sports.
