Mary Earlie is a charming and witty host. She goes out of her way to make you comfortable in this charming B&B that is conveniently located. It is a quick walk to downtown and Shannon Airport is within a 30 minute drive. And that is allowing for some traffic. Despite its proximity to town, the B&B is very quiet and conducive to a great night's sleep.
I have stayed here on 3 different trips from the US in a span of 4 years. Mary has always provided us a very early full Irish breakfast the morning of our flight -- which is complemented by a sideboard full of specialty cheeses, breads, jams, yogurt, fresh fruit. This is a huge treat at such an early hour. Just give her a heads up that you will need an early breakfast.
Glenomra House is a great place to stay if you are arriving or leaving from Shannon Airport or if you need a place to overnight while road tripping through Ireland. Mary accommodates a wide range of arrival hours. And you get to stay in a big comfortable home with one of the friendliest and funniest women in Ireland.
If you stay here, the Poet's Corner at The Old Ground Hotel is an easy walk from the B&B and their food is delicious and it is Irish pub atmosphere at its finest.SSSSS

Glenomra House is our favorite B&B in Ireland. We make it a point to stay a few days there before we leave for home - Shannon Airport is only a few kilometers away.
Mary E. is a terrific host and a very pleasant conversationalist. She goes out of her way to make things comfortable. The breakfasts are excellent as well.
I highly recommend Glenomra House.SSSSS

We had a one night stay at Glenomra. Perfect location for a short walk into town. Extremely clean and comfortable. Mary, our hostess, is friendly, funny, and knowledgeable about her surroundings. She even washed my husbands clothes because he had taken a fall and his pants and jacket were covered in mud.
Thank you Mary.SSSSS

Mary was a great hostess in everyway. We were without a car it is an easy walk getting around Ennis. Mary provided us with suggestions, directions, & even a lift a couple of times without us asking. I wasn't sure what to expect with noise from other guests, but it wasn't an issue. We weren't the only guests but I don't know how many others were there. The B&B was very clean, & a convient & easy walk from the station Mary provided directions to get to the house. SSSSS

I chose this B&B due to the rave reviews given about Mary, the owner/operator. Well she was all that and more! In addition to my room being as lovely as the photos, Mary was even lovelier! She not only had great recommendations for pubs and sites but she personally set up a tour for me. It was what happened next that was truly outstanding! During a day tour I tripped and fell and broke my wrist. Mary responded as if I was her family.I was travelling alone She not only came to visit me in the hospital but she came again when I was discharged, brought my luggage and made arrangements to get me back to Dublin so I could return home. She was amazing and I will always be grateful! And I can't wait to return to her B&B to stay & finish the rest of my tour! SSSSS

We arrived in Ireland elated to be there, exhausted from our journey, and badly in need of a couple of hours sleep. Mary made sure our rooms were ready as quickly as possible and welcomed us with warm smiles and hugs. Very homey and comfortable, great location. Mary was the star of the trip as she was such a wonderful woman and great hostess. The breakfasts served in a beautiful dining room overlooking her garden were tasty and generous. Would definitely stay there again if I am ever blessed to return to this beautiful country.SSSSS
Ennis is a truly outstanding town, undiscovered by many tourists from overseas - it is situated at the gateway to County Clare, making it an ideal base to make day trips to:
The Burren, Cliffs of Moher, Doolin, Beaches at Kilee and Lahinch (famous for surfing enthusiasts), Ailwee Caves, The Aran Islands, Bunratty Castle and Folk Park, Ireland's most complete and authentic Medieval Castle, and the folk park is a fascinating creation of 19th Century rural Ireland - also at Bunratty Woolen Mills you will find a one stop shop for all things woollen, linen, crochet, glass, souvenir and gifts - no excuse for not finding bringing back that bit of Irish with you!!
Only recently Ennis has become the first town centre in Ireland to be awarded a Purple Flag - an international award which recognises excellence in managing town centre with a focus on night-time economy.
Directions: If you are travelling from Shannon Airport, as you leave take the N19, then take the M18 north (Galway). approx 12 km later take Exit 12 - Ennis, stay on N85 for another 2.5km - you will approach the Clareabbey roundabout, take the 3rd exit, R 458 to Town Centre - follow this road for another km, passing 2 smaller roundabouts en route. After the last roundabout you will see a set of traffic lights ahead, and Glenomra is situated on the right hand side of the road before The Apple Green Petrol Station - always feel free to give me a call if you get loose your way, or roll down the window of your car and ask for directions to St Flannans College, a large grey stone building just directly across the road from Glenomra.
