    Felt modern yet old at the same time. Comfortable lobby that opens to the courtyard and easy walk to town. Dining room and bar has warm and welcoming atmosphere. Lots of wood, arched ceiling in the bar.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Temple Gate Hotel Ennis

    The location could not have been better!


    This hotel is right at the end of O'Connell Street near the Daniel O'Connell Monument. There is limited hotel parking. The rooms were what you would expect to find in a *** American hotel. The breakfast which came with the room was good and well presented. The main department store in town is right next door, and there is a traditional music pub just around the corner with super jam sessions. The staff was generally helpful. This is a pretty good choice if you want to be right in town for your stay.

    Superb Location- Very Clean


    This hotel is located just off the main street of Ennis, tucked away from noise but a few steps away from Ennis downtown. Very good food, some of the best I had during my week in Ireland. There was no gym (as with many hotels in Ireland). Excellent entertainment (Gypsy Jazz) during the weekends in their Pub. Extremely clean place. Brogan's pub -with excellent Irish "trad" music is less than a block away. The "Great Room" business center, banquet room is very impressive, I can see how it would be very cool for a wedding or other formal event.



    We recently had the pleasure of staying at the Temple Gate Hotel for a friends wedding. From the minute we arrived we were so looked after by the staff. Our bedroom was overlooking a courtyard area which is really pretty. The wedding was in the Great Hall and I must say that it is the most fabulous venue I have ever been in for a wedding. It is a Church style room. I would really recommend this hotel if you are getting married.- have your wedding reception there.

    Very Central with Outstanding Food


    We really enjoyed our stay, but we were not there long enough. Ennis is a great twon, and the hotel is perfectly located only less than 2 minutes walk to the centre. Yet it is really relaxing and you don't feel that you are in a town centre. We ate on one night in the restaurant and the food was lovely. We look forward to returning.

    Short Relaxing Break


    We had a great weekend, the hotel is ideal for a short relaxing break and the food is wonderful. I would highly recommend this hotel.

    Great Hotel in a per


    I recently stayed here and I must say it was fantastic. The location in the town centre of Ennis, close to shops, pubs and restaurants was perfect but yet it is hidden away so it was also peaceful. We dined in both the Pub and the restaurant and the food was lovely. I must mention the staff. Each and everyone of them were so friendly and could not do enough for us. I would definitely reommend it and I look forward to returning.

    Just average


    Ennis is a nice little city but this hotel is just average. It was clean and had a great location right in the city center, but there was nothing special about it. It was very difficult to find!

    Good Hotel, yellow water,same as the rest of western Ireland


    Great central location to explore the west, room were clean and staff was nice, Stayed September 19-24.Water was yellow tinged there and most other places on the west coast,locals said high iron content in the water(?),tasted fine to me and my wife.

    Horrible Place


    Hotel was absolutely horrible. The water was yellowish/brown and when my daughter accidentally drank it and got very ill, the hotel refused to provide clean drinking water. We were told we had to buy it ourselves. She was sick for over 24 hours and they never even called up to the room to see if she was alright, even after I explained that she was sick from their water! When I asked if there was a problem with the water, one staff member actually said I should boil it before I drink it!! Would never stay in this hotel again. Stay away from it!

    Would definitely recommend this!


    This hotel was great for us as it combined great value for money, excellent location near shops, pubs and restaurants and was a very well kept.

    Plenty of parking and ideal as a base for touring the west coast

    Returned to our B & B to pay and pack, the owners gave us 10euros back for our dinner, saying what lovely guests we had been! We both told them how much we had enjoyed staying here, as I said it's their home they welcome us into, apparently not all guests appreciate this!

    I hope readers have enjoyed my blog, I've loved putting it together and look forward to catching up with family and friends soon....Ciao.

    ... we are back at the hostel to fuel up for surfing.

    Derek picks us up in the Clare Surf Safari van to drive us the 30 minutes or so to the beach at Lahinch. I enjoy the drive through the countryside and the towns without having to watch the road. A nice bit of a break for me! We hit the town with the turn off for the Cliffs of Moher and Lahinch... of course a bus is having trouble turning the tight corner. Derek explains to us that there was a controversy about wanting ...

    We then adjourned to a nearby pub for dinner and some hardy souls continued socialising at John O’Dea’s pub until after ...

Shaun walked down with us and sat with us at our table. Guess what happens next? Daggers from the Canadian at the other end. So at this point Shaun suggested we should play it up just to **** her off. Every time she looked over, either he would touch me or I would ...
