Must do when visiting Ennis!

Ollie was so enthusiastic and charismatic - he made history interesting! (I don't have a great attention span for history, but Ollie made it fun and kept me listening). A nice manageable stroll for everyone and we really enjoyed it.

Friendly, amusing and informative

My sister and I had a day to ourselves before beginning a planned week-long knitting retreat. At the Museum we learned of this delightful walking tour. Ollie was knowledgeable and entertaining and I would recommend this to anyone visiting the area.

Ollie is youthful and bright, and leads an entertaining tour. As he led us to the historical sights in town, his commentary on each one linked together into a complete picture by the end of the tour.
