Lovely little hostel, nice facilities and free cereals/toast. For a treat it's worth popping to the restaurant next door for a great 2 course set menu - and get a voucher from the hostel reception for a free drink with the meal!

Spent two nights in this great hostel. What made this hostel really stand out was the friendly reception staff. They were on hand for restaurant recommendations and advice on exploring the surrounding area. The restaurant at the hostel was also great, as was the communal area which had free wifi and a good sized kitchen attached.

The hostel has a nice location on the river and easy access to the center city. It is pretty much a standard hostel with little to set it apart. We are not regular hostal users, but do enough to have reasonable expectations. The "family room" had one double bed and two bunks, which worked perfectly for us. Towels are provided,... More

We took our young family with 3 kids to this hostel for 4 nights. It is very basic but clean. We had a family room with a private bath. The double bed was extremely squeaky. We were supposed to stay for 5 nights but they messed up our booking. The owner Brian was terrific at offering us a ton of... More

I loved this hostel. I'm a solo traveler and not young. I got a room by myself with its own bathroom. You can find a room like that here... just book early. There is a wonderful lounge area where you can read, work on your computer, or visit with people. You're allowed to use the kitchen (although I didn't), and... More

I stayed at Rowan Tree with my daughter and a few friends. We had great accommodations. The staff was friendly and helpful. It was centrally located within walking distances of many places in the quaint little town of Ennis. We will definitely recommend Rowan Tree to our friends.

I was able to reserve a couple room as well as a family room for my wife and I and four sons. It worked out very well as we had always wanted to try a hostel, but on our own terms - being able to still have some privacy for the six of us. We got two quiet rooms at... More

quiet and very accessible to town. other than poor bedside lighting, low water pressure in the 3rd floor toliet, and no wi fi in the rooms (although they have it on the ground floor) it is a lovely accommodation. The staff is very agreeable and helpful.

A group of my friends stayed here--very clean, spacious rooms and helpful reception staff! They stayed for 9 nights, so much to see--a good base for touring the county. Appreciated the local advice of pubs, security, etc.
