We are from Ennis which is a great location for touring the West and South of Ireland. We live on Shanaway Road, which is 2 km long and has mainly single large houses. There is a nice hotel, golf club and bar 0.5km from our house. Ennis is a nice market town and there are many pubs, restaurants (e.g. Indian, Sicilian, Italian, Thai, Chinese, Irish, etc.), takeaways, a cinema, 2 nightclubs, 2 golf clubs, a new public swimming pool and gym, 5+ hotels, 3 supermarkets, many small boutique shops, etc.
There is a lake, river, many woods, cliffs, good walks, and nice parks near Ennis, with plenty of other "tourist" places to visit.
Ennis is a town of 25,000 people and it is the capital of a "county", called Clare. (There are 32 counties in Ireland). The nearest large towns are Limerick (about 40Km & 80,000 people) and Galway (60Km & 100,000 people). Ennis is about 35Km from the seaside, with a least 4 different good beaches to choose from (when the sun is out :-)).
Ennis is 20 mins from Shannon which is the nearest airport (Ryanair flights available from Europe). Ennis is 2.5 hours drive from Dublin, and 2 hours drive from Cork airport.
County Clare is considered by many to be the home of traditional Irish music. It also has some of the most spectacular views in all of Ireland, from the lakes of east Clare to the Cliffs of Moher.  The scenary is quite varied, from lakeland in the east, to the limestone "Burren" and the often rugged coast and some beaches to the West. It is possible to tour Cork, Kerry and Galway from Ennis. Here are some links to information about Ennis, Clare and the West of Ireland:
