The house is located in the centre of the medieval town of Ennis with it's small winding streets, lively traditional atmosphere. It is a perfect base from where to explore the West coast of Ireland.
The house is located on a quiet residential road, three minute's walk from the charming streets of Ennis with its shops, restaurants and pubs.
The house is a small, two-storey, restored terraced house. Downstairs consists of a open plan kitchen-sitting-dining room (with fireplace), which looks out on a small stone-paved courtyard/patio. Upstairs are two bright bedrooms, each with a queen-sized bed, (one with a separate walk-in wardrobe room) and a small bathroom.
There is Wi-Fi broadband throughout the house.
It is a clean and very comfortable, easily manageable, bright home and it is in a fantastic location!

The road on which the house is located is a quiet, well-settled, residential road, right in the heart of the charming town of Ennis. Ennis is quite a compact town and walking is the best way to get around it. There are lovely old winding streets, a small weekly farmer's market, some excellent pubs and a few good places to eat. There is a useful shop around the corner from our house for basics, and market area with shops, restaurants and pubs are within 3 minutes walk of the house.
The museum, theatre, and cinema are all a ten minute walk away, with the leisure centre and swimming pool approx. 20 minutes walk. The train station is located 5 minutes walk away. - this would be handy for a day trip to Dublin (little over 3 hours), or taking a train trip in to Limerick (45 minutes) or a bus trip to Galway (1 hour).
We are a couple who enjoy travelling and are interested in getting to know the cultural life of a new destination - its people and way of life.
We enjoy swimming, watersports, walking, horse-riding and at the moment are trying to learn to surf....
We speak a little Spanish, some French and German.
