    Hi,

    My husband has just got a job in Adare and we are looking at houses in the area, coming from Dublin. We really like Ennis and are considering moving there. Could anyone tell me how long it takes to commute from Ennis to Adare when the arrival time in Adare should be 8 am? Also leaving Adare around 5 pm. How long will it take to get to Ennis? How much will the tunnel improve the commuting time? Thanks

    It's a good forty minutes at least. In fact prollly even more. But that's when it's quiet. To get there you have to drive through Limerick City whihc is generally mad anyways. The evenings I couldn't say to be honest. I couldn't even give an estimate cos of rush hour traffic and all.

    Oh and hope you enjoy the wonderful town of Ennis! :cool:

    Hi there, at the present time clondell (the one with the new tescos)(its from the roundabout at coonagh take the third exit towards limerick city and dock roads can be nightmares at peak times. If your going to be hitting limerick before 7.30am you might be okay about missing the traffic. Having said that there is going to be a toll tunnel that is due to be completed shortly so might relief traffic.


    Perhaps you should come down from dublin yourself and do the runs at the times you are going to go especially at school times and see for yourself.

    I would imagine that if you left at 7 that you'd be there in plenty of time. The tunnel will really free up the route but that won't be until 2010 so there's going to be a couple of years before you get the benifit of it yet

    If you leave at 7 you'd get through Limerick no bother in the mornings. The evenings could be slow.

    Once the tunnel is finished it'd be a very handy commute.
