Visited the Temple Gate for food at the weekend with my in-laws. We decided to dine in the bar - great variety to chose from on the menu. We had barely sat down when a member of staff was over to greet us and take our order. The quality of the food and service was excellent . The bar food... More

We had booked 4 rooms for 8 family members. Our own room was a suite which was excellent- very spacious, comfortable bed, large sitting room. The other rooms were small, lack-lustre, very basic, no extras but clean. We went to the bar in the evening for food but even though the bar wasn't busy and there were sufficient staff on... More

The Temple Gate Hotel has plenty of free parking, which was a great start. The reception staff were friendly and efficient and the room was lovely. The hotel itself is located close to all the shops and cafes, which means you don't need to drive again, if enjoying staying locally. I did eat in the hotel for breakfast and I... More

I stayed at the Temple Gate hotel in March for a family event over St. Patricks Day weekend. We started off with drinks in Preachers before 20 of us headed into Legends restaurant for dinner. The quality of the food and attentiveness of the staff was excellent and everyone was delighted by the evening. The hotel rooms were lovely, and... More

After 10 days in Ireland, this was our final stop. While this front desk was nice, the rest of the staff, particularly in the hotel bar and restaurant, was inattentive, cold, and impersonal. Twice in one meal we had to get up and request to be served. Additionally, we were unimpressed by the amenities in the rooms, including a lack... More

I have returned with a group to the Temple Gate for the second year in a row. This hotel is a must for anyone staying in the West of Ireland. The restaurant is phenomenal! The food is fresh, inventive, and delicious. The staff is always gracious and welcoming, whether they are serving a large party or small. If you stay... More

I meet with my husband after travelling by bus from Kildare. The bus stopped outside the door, so it was convenient to meet. We had a drink and sandwiches. Bar " Preachers Pub" is amazing. Staff friendly and the sandwiches were very good and not very expensive. Unfortunately we did not have time to stay longer, but would certainly consider... More

We stayed here on the recommendation of a lady in the cafe at Aillwee cave. Friendly and family run was how she portrayed it so we decided to have a look. From the start the staff could not have been more helpful. Having sorted out the rooms we, half jokingly, said that we'd only come for the Craic. The receptionist,... More
