      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

      ... it looks but both of them do a very nice job with getting up on the board at least some of the time. All the while, Jim and I are sitting up on the beach by the rocks, watching and reading a bit. The surfers were out aways in the water so pictures were hard to come by... plus getting the timing right was tricky. Derek told me afterwards that I was out there in the surf watching and taking pictures then turned around right before both kids were up on their feet at the same time!! ...

      So another final was scheduled in 3 weeks time and the crowd went home happy for the draw, but also disappointed their team hadn't won.

      We had a really great time in Ennis and thought it was a lovely, friendly and homely town. ...
