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, which has some 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 (which is actually 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".BusinessThere are many shops in Ennistymon including a large supermarket, local bakery, several hairdressers, two butchers, a hardware shop, print shop, builders suppliers, several cafes and one hotel along with numerous B&Bs. There are also numerous pubs, many of which play host to the local trad music scene.TransportBusTwo Bus Eireann routes, 333 & 350 serve the town. Route 350 links Ennistymon to several locations: Ennis, Lahinch, Cliffs of Moher, Doolin (possible to connect with ferry to Aran Islands), Lisdoonvarna and Galway. There are a number of journeys each way daily. Onward rail and bus connections are available at Ennis and Galway. Route 333 links the town to Kilfenora, Corofin, Miltown Malbay and Doonbeg.
