The town of Ennis allows you to go to a school to do an English course at an English school in a medium sized town


Ennis is the 12th largest town in Ireland, with 25,000 inhabitants. Ennis is an old town developed from a monastery built by Franciscan friars on an island on the River Fergus.

Ennis comes from the Gaelic word “inis”, which means island. The river is still a feature of the town which retains a medieval character with a small central square and lanes linking the narrow streets. There is a wildlife area with ducks and geese in the middle of the town, giving it a rural feel.

Ennis was a market town for most of its history, and it is still a great shopping town with lots of small boutiques offering something different from the chain stores. There are lots of little cafés, restaurants and pubs, giving the city an individual charm.

Ennis is the principal town of County Clare and has excellent infrastructure for public administration, the arts and sports.

Some beautiful woodland walks are easily accessible from the town centre at Lees Road, with all-weather pitches and a skateboarding area.
