I spent a week here and enjoyed every day. This hostel in right in town so everything in town is within a 10 minute walk. I had a room with my wife just over/beside a small stream. In the mornings flocks of swans called and slashed outside the window; it was like awaking to a dream. As to the nuts... More

Rowan Tree Hostel is by far one of the best hostels I've come across! My friends and I were welcomed by a complementary dessert at the café and we stayed in the 12-bed dorm which was very spacious and facing the river. Wifi was only available at the dining lounge at the ground floor but everything else was perfect. Breakfast... More

My boyfriend and I recently had dinner at the Rowan Tree for our anniversary and we had the loveliest time! The food was delicious, the atmosphere was vibrant without being overly loud and Conor, our waiter, was so helpful and friendly. Make sure to indulge in a Bailey's latté when you're there - stopping at just the one is the... More

The hostel is in the very centre of Ennis, but despite this rooms are quiet and it is easy to sleep there even for a light sleeper as I am. We slept in 6 beds dorm for women and our windows were facing the river. The Staff was very friendly, helpful and funny. The breakfast was the most basic one... More

We flew in from Phoenix, Arizona after a layover in San Francisco and a missed flight in London which meant a nice 4 hour delay in Heathrow. Just perfect after being up for over 30 hours but Rowan Tree Hostel was great. At check-in, we asked about a place for dinner. We arrived around 9:30-10pm and most places would be... More
