Cloister Restaurant & Bar, Ennis

This project involved the full refurbishment and restoration of some of the 13th century Ennis Friary – a protected property, part of which is now in private ownership – and incorporating it into the completely refurbished Cloister Bar and Restaurant. Excavations during construction led to the discovery of a number of artifacts, such as an original cobble floor, which was incorporated into the design. The project is one of the first in Ireland to obtain ministerial approval under The National Monuments (Amendment) Act (2004.)
