Ennis or Limerick without a car

by hiflya

My wife and I are spending a week with her parents (in their 70's and very active)in Ireland - we are flying home from Shannon and they are staying on for 4 days. They will not have a car and are planning on taking some day tours in the area.
Which town would be best for such a situation?
Does anyone have any suggestions for tours they might consider.

Thanks in advance

Without their own transport I think Limerick would be best as their will be plenty of restaurants, pubs, shops etc. on their doorstep. Also they will have easy access to visitor attractions like St John's Castle,the Hunt Museum and some walking tours within the city. For tours in the general area they might like to try Bunratty Castle and Folkpark, Doolin and the cliffs of Moher, Glin Castle and Gardens, Foynes Flying Boat Museum, the Burren (an area of natural beauty). They may be able to get to some of these attractions on public transport and they will get information on organised tours from the Tourist Office or in their accomodation. You don't say what time of the year you are travelling, tours may be somewhat limited in the low season.
More info on the following sites:

All the best,

I do not know about Ennis but there is a bus tour around the city in Limerick and it is a major city with rail and bus links to much of Ireland and distances there are not far (well not far when you live in Australia)

And there is the Shannon River.

We liked Adare a near by village....cosy.....and there was some genuine Irish music when we were there. Maybe a day trip.

When I had some questions about Ireland this lady was helpful
Liz Flynn liz@irishtourism.com if she is still on staff.

Thanks for your replies.
We are going late April.
We have a cottage rented in Dingle for a week - this will be my second time but the first for every one else.
We will do (long) day trips from there.

I would suggest that they stay in Ennis, as there is a lot to keep them active without a vehicle. There are a wealth of day tours offered which depart from the Tourist information centre in Ennis. These tours offer a chance to visit Galway, the Cliffs of Moher and farther afield.

If they stay at city centre, they will have pubs, restaurants and shops close at hand. I have enjoyed a fine meal at Town Hall on O'Connell street.

If they enjoy a nice walk, their is the sculpture trail along the river Fergus, as well as several guided and self-guided walking tours of Ennis itself, http://www.enniswalkingtours.com. There are several museums of note in Ennis and the Cathedral is stunning.
