Ennistymon, Co. Clare

Ennistymon or Ennistimon (Inis Diomáin in Irish) is an attractive village set in a wooded valley in County Clare. It is located about 4km (2.5 miles) inland from Lahinch. A popular tourist town, it has a typical Irish main street, with many traditional pubs. Ennistymon is unchanged since it was established in 1588 and retains its historical character with traditional shop fronts and a lack of modern high street outlets.

A hilly town ideal for walking, with slender streets and the picturesque River Inagh, which has some small rapids known as "the Falls", runs through the town, behind the main street. The river provides excellent salmon and trout fishing.

Boating, dancing, tennis, cinema and other recreations are available locally, and there is good brown trout fishing on the Cullenagh River and the Dealagh River.
