As the cap­i­tal of a renowned mu­sic county, En­nis (Inis) is filled with pubs fea­tur­ing trad mu­sic. In fact, this is the best rea­son to stay here. Where’s best changes of­ten; stroll the streets pub-hop­ping to find what’s on any given night.

It’s 186km to Din­gle if you go via Lim­er­ick city, but only 142km if you go via the N68 to Kil­limer for the ferry across the Shan­non estuary to Tar­bert.

The views get fab­u­lous when you’re be­yond Tralee on the N86, es­pe­cially if you take the 456m Connor Pass, Ire­land’s high­est.
