Stayed two nights here and it was nice. While not air conditioned, we did have to deal with outside noises (talking, buses, etc.) because the window needed to remain opened. There were nice dinner options each night and everything was in walking distance. I did enjoy the uniqueness of the hotel with the old stained glass windows and architecture.

Stayed two nights at this hotel. We have stayed in Ennis before but this hotel was far superior to the previous hotel. It has lovely high vaulted ceilings. We ate in the restaurant the first night and had an excellent meal of steak then went into the bar and listened to the band. We also had two breakfast with a... More

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
