After issues with reservations at two other places near Ennis, we ended up at Grey Gables. I wish I'd booked them from the start! Mary was very nice and gave us a private room at the top of the stairs after finding out we'd just arrived in the country and were tired. Breakfast was good. Unlike some other B&Bs we stayed at, we actually got to meet people at breakfast, which was fun. The room was lovely. The location was excellent as we could easily walk to restaurants and such in Ennis. One warning--they don't take credit here, so have cash. That discouraged me at first since we were flying in on a Sunday and not sure we could get money changed, but ATMs are easy to find.

Mary, the Inn Keeper, makes you feel extremely welcome and often has other guests at breakfast from all over the globe. Great Irish and Continental breakfasts in a glorious windowed room. With a beautifull Cathedrall just 2 blocks away and numerous musical Pubs and shops less than a 5 minute walk away, Grey Gables is a perfect setting to get to know a typical small town in South West Ireland. A great starting location after your long flight into Shannon and then explore the Burren, the Ring of Kerry or the scenic Shannon River, the largest in Ireland.

The map does not make this clear, but this B&B is about a two minute walk from the heart of Ennis, which has almost no parking. Grey Gables does have parking, although it's a bit tricky for an American used to larger parking spots and right-hand side driving. The train/bus station is also just two minutes walk away. I would stay here for convenience alone, but, in addition, the rooms are comfortable and Mary is nice. The breakfast was terrific, with very good brown bread (which can sometimes be dry). Beds were really comfortable, with nice duvets. We had two rooms -- one was smallish with a large bathroom, and the other was largish with a small bathroom.

Ennis is a nice location for the Cliffs of Moher (30 minute drive) and The Burren (view on the return from the Cliffs). Many of the bars have traditional music at night, although this seems to be mostly enjoyed by the tourists. There is a laundry on Abbey street which will do a load of wash and dry for 8 euro. Shannon airport is about 30 minutes drive as well, so this is a good spot if you are flying out of Shannon.

The B&B was clean, but the hardwood floors were noisy. We heard every person walk down the hall as they came in for the evening. If they were in an upstairs room, that was a noisy climb, too. However, the town is sweet and the location is good. Bed was comfortable and the room was clean.

This is a good bed and breakfast with a fine breakfast and a very helpful and charming hostess. Breakfast was fine.
It is not a small country bed and breakfast.
It is close to the public transit station and to the shops and pubs.
The hostess suggested good restaurants and venues for Irish music in walking distance, and a organized a tour to the Burren for us with a local taxi driver.
