Note: As at 28 Jan 2014, Cathie reports: “Almost all my group allocation rate for July 2014 has already been sold. At this stage I have one single and one twin room left available at Old Ground Hotel. Alternatively I can still help with third party prepayable contract rates at Old Ground Hotel which are still very competitive, other hotels in the area such as Temple Gate, Auburn Lodge and West County and a few B&B’s as well as other add ons that you may require such as flights, car hire, hotel stays and tours.”
The proximity of Ennis to Shannon Airport (24 km) and the nearby location of excellent golf courses ensure that housing for visitors is as varied and as plentiful as Ennis’ famed pubs.
