I booked here last minute as I travelled from the east coast to attend a funeral. The low cost attracted me here. On arrival I found the place modern, clean and tidy and very well situated in the heart of Ennis. The staff were friendly and efficient. The room was warm and the bed was comfortable. I was told on... More

The best hostel I have ever stayed in. We stayed as part of a tour. None-the-less, it was clean, spacious in the rooms and bathrooms, and comfortable. In the dorm room we were in there was also a double bed, something I have never seen. Breakfast was a basic continental breakfast, but enough to fuel up for a day of... More

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.

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.
