IN celebration of this Saturday’s Ennis Book Club Festival The Old Ground Hotel has put pen to paper and created the perfect ‘book lovers break’.
The hotel, of course, has many literary connections of its own, featuring a cosy library area for residents and it celebrates many of the great Irish Poets throughout the hotel, particularly in the bar area where painted portraits hang of writers like Seamus Heaney and Oscar Wilde.
Fittingly then they have titled their Book Club Festival offer The ‘Poet’s Package’ which includes a one-night stay in a luxurious and spacious room or suite, dinner in the acclaimed Poet’s Corner bar which features delicious fresh local Ennis produce.
Guests availing of the ‘Poet’s Package’ will also receive a signed copy of ‘This is Happiness’ by Man Booker nominated novelist Niall Williams in their room upon arrival along with tickets to a book festival headline event of your choice.

Commenting on the upcoming Book Festival and Poet’s Package offer, proprietor of the Hotel and avid supporter of the arts Allen Flynn said, “We want to wish the Ennis Book Club Festival the very best of luck with all their events and are looking forward to welcoming both locals and visitors to Ennis where they will not find a better place to curl up with a book, be it in our well-appointed bedrooms, welcoming foyer areas, with a pint or cocktail at the bar or in our mature garden outdoors.
“We can all appreciate the great pleasure of getting away from it all and a staycation with a good book is certainly what I would think of as one of the best ways to have a bit of a digital detox and indulge in some self-care”.
