Cruce House (Cruises Pub) was built in 1658 by John Cruce. He was an English Settler and merchant who had settled in Ennis prior to the rebellion of 1641. He was one of the defenders of Ballyalla Castle and his disposition on the events leading to the siege is recorded in the court of Limerick. Unlike many of the other English settlers he returned to Ennis in 1658 & continued his business as a merchant & leased lands around Ennis. The house was converted to a Public House in 1993. Since then Cruises has been famous for its links to Irish Traditional Music & has hosted sessions with most of the great Irish musicians of the last twenty years.
