Temple Gate billed itself as a "16th Century Convent" refurbished. There is actually very little of the actual convent that is part of the hotel, so I felt like it was a bit of false advertising. The room was just "okay," nothing special for the price. There was a big hubbub happening at the front desk when we arrived and... More

This is a nice hotel in a nice little village (Ennis, Ireland). It's an old convent converted to a hotel. The problem is, they stopped remodeling when they got to the guest rooms. I thought the ghost of Sister Mary Harry was punishing me for not finishing my prayers. Really. No air and the room was right next to a... More

Deborah D's review, which I will quote here sums it up for me "We booked this online based upon reviews "#2 hotel " in Ennis. I cannot imagine the others if this is ranked that high! Older furnishings, no hair dryer, no water kettle, stuffy (no ac) and a higher price in comparison to ALL places I've stated over 17... More

We decided to stay in the lovely town of Ennis on our visit to Ireland in May. We chose the Temple Gate Hotel because of its close proximity to town. In fact it is only 2 minutes from town but located in a very quiet area where you can't hear any noise except for the doves cooing outside your window.... More

This hotel is located just off O'Connell Square in the center of Ennis. Absolutely walking distance to everywhere makes this a superb location for anyone staying in this quaint town.
