I really don't understand why this hostel has received such great reviews. When traveling, a few things are very important; good WiFi and clean washrooms. This hostel had neither. WiFi is only available in the kitchen and lobby. As soon as you go into another area of the hostel, the WiFi cuts off. I even tried going to the living... More

There was a double bed and a double Decker bunk bed in the room and towels provided but no soap nor shampoo. Room 206 has views of the canal which was quite nice. (pity... More

I have stayed here for the past 3 years in a private ensuite room. It has an excellent location for all the music pubs in Ennis. There is also a wonderful cafe on the premises. Rooms are clean and it is a fun place to meet other travelers.

A big thanks to the Rowan Tree Hostel and their staff for facilitating our workshop, last weekend. The staff were delightful to deal with , friendly and courteous. The facilities, were second to none. The communal areas were clean and tidy. We would highly recommend this hostel. The setting along the Fergus River, is beautiful.

We had the best experience. The girl at the front counter was sort of rude, but the hostel itself was amazing! Great beds, amazingly clean and semi-private bathrooms, and amazing food at the restaurant. Would definitely recommend. Also in a great location!
