Full description
This tour is a great opportunity for everyone visiting Ennis the first time to get to know the town. Get acquainted with Irish history and culture during an Irish cultural workshop where you'll learn aspects of the Irish language, immerse yourself in the Irish culture, and be taught an Irish song.

Meet your guide at the O'Connell Monument in Ennis town center. In a small group (max. 10 people), make your way through the narrow Abbey street towards the Abbey. Stroll down the street known for its popular pubs, bars, and restaurants. Your guide will point them out and take you to a journey through time from the 13th century when the Abbey was first built to what it has become today.

Then, continue the tour to visit the 1916 memorial and Steele's rock before heading over to the Old Gentleman's Club for the Irish cultural workshop. Here, you'll learn the basics of the Gaelic language which is spoken mainly in small little towns and villages around Ireland. Then, immerse yourself in the Irish culture and try out hurling and Gaelic football. Last, learn an Irish song that you can sing in one of the many pub music sessions.

After the workshop, head out to explore more sights of Ennis town including St. Peter and Paul's Cathedral, the Ennis market, as well as one hidden gem even unknown to most locals. By the end of this tour, you will have seen the essence of Ennis town and experienced a real sense of Irish culture.
