Ennistymon is rapidly gaining a name as an art town! Since 2005, with the opening of the Courthouse Gallery and Studios, Ennistymon has gained a reputation as the best place in Co Clare to see contemporary art exhibitions of all kinds. Any casual visitor to Ennistymon will now see a wide range of art galleries throughout the town. Less well-known are the many artists’ studios and the full-time VS Art Course also hidden away in nooks and crannies of this not-so-sleepy market town. Now you can find them too with the free art trail map!
