I went to the Temple Gate Hotel today . I had a great time. I went with my mother, my aunt, and my granny. We all enjoyed it. There was a lovely waiter called Maidhc. He was very kind and funny. I had chips, 2 hot chocolates and strawberry ice cream. The chips were done to perfection and the strawberry... More

We stayed here one night during our trip to Ireland, the night before leaving from Shannon airport. The location was nice, in terms of being at a nice spot in Ennis as well as in proximity to the airport. However, we had trouble locating the hotel, so called and were given directions that were unhelpful and we never found the... More

Firstly, let me start by praising the wonderful, friendly and extremely helpful staff who do a great job in a hotel that looks decidedly down at heel. The rooms look very tired and are in need of some attention. The food also needs looking at - it is not good. The breakfast especially is dreadful, the worst I have ever... More

Well located in town. Decent rooms and good service. The biggest disappointment was the breakfast where most of the food.had been cooked and kept warm well ahead of serving. The tip is go for the freshly cooked omelette!

I spent a day here and the food is dreadful. I've been before with similar experiences so now I'm happy to advise others - go out to eat. Overpriced and sub standard "food" I paid almost €12 for a chicken Caesar salad with soggy croutons, red lettuce and tasteless chicken. Definitely not worth €12.

Nice place in the center of Ennis. Very quiet at night. Room was a good size and clean. Able to walk to shops and pubs, the train station was a bit too far of a walk. Suggest that you check different hotel booking sites to get the best rate.

The Temple Gate Hotel was fantastic! Beautiful rooms and such friendly servers. Great service. The food was really good although not priced for a larger group or family. The location was right in the center of town!! If you walked out the back door you were right in the center of town!! Amazing location!

I have stayed in this hotel a number of times over the last 8 years and it is slowly aging, rooms and hallways are not as well maintained as they should be. Staff are still wonderful and helpful.
