Two days in Ennis, almost 1 day too many

Not much to do in Ennis – not sure it was the best place to stop. In retrospect, I should have chosen Limerick or Shannon, but made sense at the planning stage. After a very good breakfast we drove to see the Caherconnell Stone Fort. Then went to see Poulnabrone Portal Tomb. Very cool. Tried really hard to find the Poulawack Cairn but had no luck, (probably drove right past it two or three times). Eventually a road spit us out at Cassidy's so we stopped for lunch – having these huge plates of potatoes! Wow, we were carbed up and good to go. We then went to visit the Dysert O’Dea castle which was pretty interesting. I know it sounds like we didn’t do much but I spent a lot of time driving aimlessly, getting lost, turning around, etc. GPS wasn’t great for getting from one tourist spot to another, really only for city to city. And while I had an AA road atlas in the car, I didn’t have the best passenger navigator. Anyhow. Light dinner at Eddie Rockets after stopping in the city centre for a little more shopping/browsing. Basically, killing time before having to go back to the B&B for the night.
