Kilfenora Céili Band
The imported beer here won’t insult your sensibilities. Good brews from across Europe are on offer along with Hooker. At night DJs provide a Euro beat.
Trendy bar/club with a small patio sheltered by shrubs where you can text your crew to come join you. A few books really are placed around the edgy, moody interior, with lots of primary-colour backlights behind the bar. Open till 2am at weekends.
Behind the green door lies an old pub that’s quiet for much of the day. The candlelit tables are perfect for planning your journey in convivial climes.
On the Ennis side of the village, look for Zion Coffee House . There are good views of the back of the Quin Abbey and you can fortify yourself with excellent coffees, teas and juices. During the day breakfast and fresh, creative lunches are available.

Head to this thatched pub for a good pint and live music at weekends.
