Great hotel, in a beautiful little location that bigger hotels would kill for. The room was a good size, the bed really comfortable the wifi rked really well and was free. It has a great conference room, there was actually a historical one on when we were staying there. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We met Paul the... More

Beautiful hotel. Lots of space in the room and in the lobby, too. Beds were comfortable, not too hard. The shower had one of the glass things instead of a shower curtain but water didn’t spill all over the floor so that was good. We had a great view of the Claire Museum and the garden baskets. Nice place. Wifi... More

Stayed 3 nights in Ennis which is too long for the area but having said that I didn't get tired of Temple Hotel. Staff was great and room nice, clean and quiet. Room overlooked beautiful courtyard that got a little noisy at times but it's a walkway between streets. I didn't eat there, thought breakfast was included when I booked... More

I stayed here for one night recently. It's very centrally located in the town but has the advantage of having parking available. The public areas of the hotel are beautiful and really pleasing to the eye, as well as being comfortable. The bedrooms are a bit disappointing. They are fine and clean etc. and do the job fine, but don't... More

We recently stayed here as part of a Globus Tour group, thus had no choice in the arrangements. So what a delight it was to walk through the doors, be met by a group of very friendly and helpful staff and find very nice accommodations. We walked out the back entrance into a lovely square and just a block or... More

Just back from a 3 day visit to this hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was excellent. Would highly recommend this hotel. It is an old convent which was run by nuns and has wonderful features.

Stayed in the Temple Gate which is a beautifully converted old church in the middle of Ennis for 3 nights. Lovely comfortable surroundings, comfortable room, good bathroom but the towels could be a little bit bigger. Very good staff, very helpful, and great food. It's probably only 150 yards to the Main Street and all the pubs with the real... More

We stayed here our last night in Ireland because it wasn't too far from here to the Shannon airport. It was fine. The lobby and restaurant/bar areas are much nicer than the room itself. The room was very basic. It was fine, clean enough and comfortable enough, but this was the most vanilla place we stayed of the trip. The... More

My husband and I stayed 1 night at this hotel. We were disappointed. It is a misrepresentation to say this is a four star hotel...it is more of a two to three star. Room was dirty and worn. The carpets were particularly filthy. The positives: staff were friendly, shower water pressure was good, hair dryer in room was a plus,... More
