Movies and Escape Rooms
On every holiday there’ll be days where the weather might not be great – but that doesn’t mean the fun has to stop. At Hotel Woodstock we can recommend two great indoor favourites that are perfect ways to pass a rainy afternoon – and they’re conveniently situated right here in the heart of Ennis.
This state-of-the-art digital cinema is situated in Parnell Street, Ennis – just 3.9 km (7 minutes) from Hotel Woodstock. Part of its charm is its location in the cobble-stoned lanes and bow-ways of this Medieval town, making an outing to the movies a real experience of old world meeting new!
The Movieplex has 7 screens and offers screenings of all the latest releases – from family magic to action and classic romcoms. Each cinema is fully air-conditioned for comfort and there is a lobby shop stocked with all your favourite treats. If you’re driving, you’ll find plenty of parking in the Parnell Street car park – or the multi-storey car park in the market area.
You can book movie tickets online at www.empiremovieplex.ie or by calling 065 6821742 during opening hours.
ESCAPE ROOMS, ENNIS
Fancy a really different, fun experience – and learning a little about Ireland at the same time? Then head to the Escape Rooms in Ennis – just 5.8 km (5 minutes) from Hotel Woodstock, in Bunnow, Ennis.
The idea is simple – but SUCH FUN! An Escape Room or Escape Game is a physical adventure in a specially-themed room. Your mission? To find and gather the clues you need to complete your mission and break out of the room! You’ll combine the clues with hints and develop a winning strategy to ‘escape’.
You will have an hour to complete your mission – and it’ll take your unique skills and insights to get the job done and beat the puzzles and challenges. All the clues are in the room – you just need to find them! They could be in a book on a shelf, or feature in a painting. They could be a string of numbers you need to unlock a safe, or a key to open a cupboard. It’s about observation, logical and lateral thinking, and communication - combining brain power with creativity. But most of all, it’s about fun!
The Ennis Escape Rooms are all designed around Irish History and Folklore – making them completely unique. Please note: children aged two to five are not permitted and we do not recommend the activity for those ages 6 to 10.
