We stayed with Eileen and Pat and family for 6 days, during which time we explored, besides Ennis, much of County Clare as well as Limerick. Their comfortable home is in a quiet neighborhood very convenient to the coast, the Burren, and the River Shannon, as well as to Shannon Airport, our point of departure. Nearby are two petrol stations with decent grocery stores. Ennis is a nice town with downtown just a few minutes drive in, and a good ring road once you figure it out.
Eileen and Pat and family are all very kind yet not intrusive, and by the end of our stay we were feeling a bit like family. I particularly enjoyed my time with Pat, helping him work his vegetable and flower garden one evening and another evening sitting and sharing stories with him. Their sitting room has comfortable chairs, and while the view from the front is unremarkable, open vistas abound within a very short walk. A second small sitting area looks out on a large vegetable garden. Breakfast was simple compared to some places but very nicely prepared.
Our particular room had a VERY comfortable bed and an extra-large bathroom with a great shower and other extras. My main criticism would be the limited bedroom storage, and maybe the bedroom's outlook on a unfinished side yard.
