Festivals in Ennis Co.Clare
Ennis is a lovely, warm and friendly town even at the worst of times, but that’s nothing compared to what it’s like when there’s a festival on! If you are fortunate enough to happen to be visiting during one of Ennis’s many such celebrations, or if perhaps you even intentionally planned your visit to coincide with one of them, you will be thrilled with what you find. The Irish love a party, and Ennis is as Irish as they come,
so if you want to see a festival done in truly unique Irish style, be sure to plan your stay in Ennis to coincide with at least one of the fun and varied festivals the town has to offer.
Always a sure hit with the ladies is Ennis Fashion week, which takes place in the autumn. Ennis is pleased to tout itself as the “boutique capital of Ireland” and with its quaint and picturesque streets as well as a diverse range of retail opportunities, it’s no surprise that Ennis Fashion Week is such a hit with so many. This festival is simply a must for all the stylish, and you will find that many local accommodations offer special deals for this time.
A more family oriented affair is of course the Children’s book festival, which also takes place in late autumn. Literacy is celebrated and literature is adored when numerous children’s authors take the time to visit the libraries of Ennis and offer readings for their youngest and most devoted fans! In addition to library tours the festival boasts author workshops, puppet theatre, storytelling, a whole variety of presentations and something for everybody to enjoy!
On a similar subject is the Ennis Book Club Festival, which is equally popular although slightly more high brow, but don’t worry; in a town like Ennis, with celebration itself a cause for merriment, you’ll never run out of festivals to take part in!
