Ennistymon, County Clare

Close to Lahinch, Ennistymon is full of fun shops.

You'll be tempted to pass through Ennistymon on your way to Lahinch, but take some time and look around. A beautiful river flows through the heart of town.

Ennistymon has two excellent choices for lodging. The Grovemount House is one of the premier B&B's in Ireland and the Falls Hotel is one of the old grand hotels of the world. Both overlook the river.

The town of Ennistymon is hidden in a recess among the surrounding hills. It lies on the southern edge of the Burren, two miles inland from the Atlantic.

The narrow street near the bridge over the Cullenagh River will take you to the oldest part of the town.

 A little below the bridge, the river rushes over an extensive ridge of rocks and forms a beautiful cascade about one and one-half miles away from where it joins the river Derry.

Just down the road from Ennistymon is Lahinch Golf Club. As you drive towards Lahinch, you will notice the Great Famine Memorial located on the north side of the Ennis Road.

This was the first memorial in Ireland dedicated to those who suffered through the "Great Hunger."
