    Clare Musuem Exhibits

    On Arthur's Row in Ennis, sits a small, unassuming, structure. Once a school ran by the Sister's of Mercy, it is now the home of the Clare Museum. I spent a full day in this small museum studying every artifact and historical gem. I learned all about Ennis and other Clare towns, as well as the stories of Brian Boru, last high king of Ireland, and his descendents, the O'Briens; John Philip Holland, the inventor of the submarine; and Shannon's role in navigation and as an airport. It is an absolutely fascinating, highly overlooked gem of a museum. In the Clare Museum, local legends and lore come alive in story boards, audio-visual displays, and delightful artifact displays. One of my favorite displays, being catholic, was the display featuring local saints, Caimin, Senan, and Colman, as well as monasteries, abbeys, holy wells and the Holy Island (Inis Cealtra).

    A typical Street in Ennis

    We picked up a flyer for the Walking tour at the Tourist office. You just need to show up at the Temple Gate courtyard. We did this tour the 1st evening while in Ennis and discovered places we wanted to see later during our stay.
