Ennistymon or Ennistimon is a country market town in County Clare, near the west coast of Ireland. A popular tourist spot, it has a typical Irish main street, with many traditional pubs. The river Inagh, with its small rapids known as the Cascades, runs through the town, behind the main street. A bridge across the river leads to nearby Lahinch, on the N67 national secondary road. The town is connected to Ennis by the N85, the main street through the town.NameThe town's official name is Ennistimon, although Ennistymon is the spelling most widely used. Historically, it was spelled Inishdymon. This is believed to derive from Inis Diomáin meaning "Diomán's island". However, Míchéal Ó Raghallaigh argues that the name is derived from Inis Tí Méan meaning "island of the middle house" or "river meadow of the middle house".GeographyEnnistymon is located on the border of the upland area of County Clare known as the Burren. The Cullenagh river is called Inagh after the Ennistymon falls, at which point it becomes tidal.HistoryEnnistymon grew from just three cabins in 1775 to 120 houses in 1810 . The oldest part of town is the narrow street near the bridge. A convent, Mount St. Josephs, was established in 1824.EconomyThere are many shops in Ennistymon including a large supermarket, bakery, several hairdressers, two butchers, a hardware shop, print shop, dry cleaners, launderette, builders suppliers, several cafes and one hotel along with numerous B&Bs. There are also numerous pubs, many of which host to traditional music.
