SKODA Ring of Clare Cycle

July 28 - July 29 2018
Clare, Ireland

The SKODA Ring of Clare Cycle is the perfect reason to visit and stay in Ennis and Clare.  Lying on the banks of the River Fergus, Ennis is the bustling capital town of County Clare. The town centre is renowned for its narrow, medieval streets and plentiful bars and restaurants.  Ennis is a thriving market town, with a host of unusual shops with a flair for boutique shopping. This picturesque and historic town enjoys a rich tradition in Irish music and culture.

This year Clare celebrated the designation of County of Culture in 2016 and is host to the Fleadh Cheoil in mid August 20147. Traditional music sessions can be enjoyed nightly in many of the town’s bars. Ennis acts as a superb base for Co. Clare’s other major must visit attractions, the Burren, Cliffs of Moher, Bunratty Castle, Loop Head lighthouse among many more.
