I stayed at this hotel as part of a bus tour. The staff members were great. I asked for a change of rooms as my initial room had a view of the parking lot; they were able to accommodate me for the second night. The view of the square was much more scenic. The rooms are decent, but a bit... More

This is the third year I have stayed at the Temple Gate Hotel in Ennis. The facilities are excellent, the dining room and bars are of a high standard and the rooms spacious and comfortable. That its located right in the centre of town without appearing to be is a blessing. Its quiet. Great car-parking, lift and everything you would... More

Great location in the centre of Ennis with a fantastic pub attached. We booked this online and were delighted with the standard and quality of the rooms and customer service. The only potential negative was how warm it was in the room but having raised this we were provided with a fan on our second night.

Despite the fact that there was a mix-up when arriving at this hotel between the hotel and the site from which I booked this hotel, I cannot but warmly recommend this hotel. The person at the reception was very helpful and we managed to sort out this problem. A bit of a problem with the plumbing (especially hot water), but... More

The car park was rather busy when we arrived, but we found a place to park OK. Reception were very friendly, an impressive lobby. The room was fine, can't fault it at all. There wasn't any noise outside and the bathroom was clean and modern. Overall, a great place to stay and accordingly I marked it 5 stars.

The hotel has a private parking lot surrounded by a public lot so you don't have to worry about getting a space. You can leave your car there because there's a courtyard out front and wends its way into the heart of Ennis. It's set back far enough though so you don't hear a lot of noise unless you have... More

Stayed for one night €94 room only, room was average but nice and clean, window looked directly out onto a car park, didn't feel secure, you would think there would be a net curtain for some privacy but there wasn't one. Bar staff more interested in their mobile phone than serving customers so we left and ate elsewhere, location is... More

We stayed here while on holidays, and this hotel is very central in the town. We were able to walk easily around Ennis, and it is a great location for visiting places around clare. The staff were very helpful, and the room was excellent.

We stayed here with a group tour, so we didn't choose it ourselves and I'm not sure we would have if we were traveling on our own. The location was fantastic, right in the center of Ennis so going out and exploring was easy. The lobby is pretty and interesting looking but that's the only thing that's interesting. The rooms...
