Full registration includes shuttle transportation where needed on the days of EAM 12th – 14th. Most accommodation and venues we are using are all within minutes walking distance of each other apart from two where it’s a 5-minute drive to one and just under 10 minutes to the other. We do not recommend the use of a rental car for these days – its not necessary (unless you have friends or family not participating in EAM schedule and staying at one of the two hotels slight further from centre of Ennis) and you will just be paying to park the car (if you can find parking!) Its very much a small, narrow walking street centre and limited parking in town.
