Three of us stayed here for 1 night as it was recommended to us. The rate was €99 including breakfast (self service) so was reasonable for a private room but pricy for a hostel. The room itself was ok and the breakfast was simple. Fortunately we only wanted coffee. We could have gotten a nice guest house in the same... More

I've stayed here on numerous occasions before and every time I've been very satisfied with my stay. Cheap, clean, spacious rooms, friendly staff with a great location near the town centre. 2 minutes walk from two of the best pubs in Ennis. The complimentary brownie waiting for me in my room was a nice touch!

Friendly staff, next to town center, the kitchen and the breakfast room are clean but it could be uncomfortable when fully booked. The rooms are clean and look better than average hostel rooms. They have an own clean bathroom, unfortunately wi-fi only in ground floor

Stayed here for a few nights while exploring Ennis and County Clare. A completely different pace compared to most hostels. Great place to relax and close to everything. Great breakfast with a huge kitchen to work in and the room was right above the river. Some of the nicest beds we stayed in. Wifi is only in the lounge.

Cheap, clean, good bed, center of town , rooms with bathrooms , short taxi to bus station, nice staff. This was a decent last night place to stay, but save some money before I leave for the airport Staff is very helpful, wifi is superstrong in common room.

I was going to be leaving from the Shannon airport and needed a close hostel to stay at. This was the closest and it was a great choice. I so enjoyed staying at this hostel. The beds were comfortable (such nice bedding!) the kitchen was extremely clean, the location was wonderful, staff was very nice, just an overall wonderful stay.

Rowan Tree was like a breath of fresh air! 3 of us stayed there for a few nights and had the best experience! They really played a big role in why we liked Ennis so much. Stay here- please!!!! You will love it.

Excellent central location, set alongside the river. A neat and classic style to the place makes it feel homely and inviting. Super comfortable beds and clean spacious rooms. There really isn't anything else I can remark about this place except to highly recommend you try it out for yourself!
