Temple Gate was a great choice for our stay in Ennis. Centrally located with plenty to see and do within a small radius. Great food and entertainment on site as well. Pleasant rooms and friendly efficient staff. Be sure to see the old chapel of this converted convent.

This hotel was once a convent. Family run and friendly with comfy beds, clean and tidy. Very spacious rooms. We are a big tour group and they have looked after us all very well. The service is very friendly.

The good...the pub in the hotel and the staff were very friendly and accommodating - especially Cillian, the bar. The rooms were small and basic and the location is convenient to Shannon Airport but little else. It is a 40 minute drive to the Cliffs of Moher- the areas largest attraction.

My daughter and I decided to treat ourselves and had heard that Afternoon Tea in The Temple Gate Hotel was something to be experienced. We heard right! It was luxurious with finger sized sandwiches, filled croissants and wraps, and of course the pastries! What can I say? They were to die for!!! Everyone should treat themselves to Afternoon Tea at...

The hotel itself was in a great location for everything we wanted to see and do. The room was fairly standard and comfortable. What made me stop to write a review was the excellent customer service provided by Una and Aidin during our stay. Una checked us in, gave us directions, and was just very pleasant to talk to. Aidin... More

Didn't stay at the hotel, we had a great lunch at their bar/restaurant, the decor was interesting, more like an old church, staff were fantastic and very quick, our meals were hearty and tasty, I can recommend the chowder, the bar had all the good beers, my favourite Smithwicks pale ale, our waiter Lauren offered me a sample which was...

I will start this off with the positive. The hotel staff was very kind and attentive. Maybe to a fault as I was disturbed by house keeping a few times even with the do not disturb on the door. The pub in the hotel was also very good and probably had my favorite fish and chips of the trip. Also,... More

Spent two nights at the Temple Gate while on a business trip to Ireland. The hotel is located in the town of Ennis not far from Shannon. The hotel is conveniently located right off the central town area. Less than a 5 minute walk to several pubs and restaurants. My room was on the 3rd floor facing the parking lot.... More

The location is possibly the best in Ennis. You're right in the heart of things just across the courtyard from the Clare Museum. Although you're in the heart of things you'd never know it as it's very quiet at night. I think we may have lucked out because our room, for a very moderate price, was enormous. There was a... More
