Centered on the 1588-vintage O'Brien castle and known for the traditional shop fronts of its town centre.

The market town includes the Falls Hotel, home of Caitlin MacNamara who married the Welsh poet, Dylan Thomas. The celebrated Welsh painter, Augustus John, regularly visited it. Ennistymon is situated on the River Cullenagh, which at this point passes over the famous 'Falls'. These 'Falls' can be viewed from the bridge or, better still, from the footpath or riverside walk. The poet Brian Merriman was born here in 1749.
