My husband and I stayed at the Temple Gate Hotel on Sunday night last. We were in Ennis for a family birthday dinner and therefore just needed a central base. The location of this hotel is excellent, mere steps away from the town centre, O'Connell Square. Our room had a double and single bed in it and was an OK... More

All of the staff we met were incredibly friendly and welcoming. The bedroom was clean, well presented and nicely furnished. Nice to have a bath as well as a shower. We asked for a quiet part of the hotel and this was given to us. The library was relaxing and comfortable. The restaurant and pub decorated lovely and full of... More

This is a really unique hotel. They have preserved the beautiful interior spaces of this former convent. The restaurant and pub areas are wonderfully ornate. The food and service was very good. The room also had it's own unique touches and was quiet & comfortable. The hotel is perfectly situated for exploring the city centre of Ennis. Everything is in... More

We stayed for one night in October. Very unique property that used to be a nuns convent. The front desk staff were extremely friendly. The location is steps away from downtown. The rooms are a good size. The building is older but that is part of the charm. They have a very nice lounge and sitting rooms. Our room could... More

A touch pricey and after a visit two years ago was in need of some improvement. I only had meals here and after a little coaching the chef got the steak just right. The staff are great as is the service. The hotel was walking distance from the holiday rent and stacked up very well food wise.

Recently I dined here for Sunday Lunch in the restaurant. The food was top class all very tasty and fresh, Service was pleasant and attentive and the restaurant was spotlessly clean. If i was to have any criticism is that when I dine alone waiting staff come too many times to the table to check all is good. Once is... More

My husband and I stayed at the Temple Gate Hotel for our first night in Ireland after arriving at Shannon Airport. The location near the airport is convenient; the location in town is perfect for walking around. The hotel backs onto a courtyard that adds to the charm, although if you have a room overlooking the courtyard, be advised that... More

Stayed for a long weekend on a singing convention and enjoyed every minute in the hotel. A beautifully restored / converted and partly rebuilt church, it is spacious, full of character and in tip-top condition both inside and out. It's also a lovely location in a little square at the centre of town, convenient yet quiet, Staff were unfailingly helpful,... More

We stayed here and would highly recommend this hotel. The staff are excellent and very helpful and the hotel is very central for shopping in Ennis town. The hotel is finished so well and has great character, and the food is so good. Well worth a visit.
