“Great location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

Spent two night here as part of our Globus Ireland tour. Loved the location, easy to walk to shops and restaurants. Decent size room and nice size bathroom. I still don't get the half shower doors we found in almost all the hotels in Ireland and Italy! Would stay again.

The Temple Gate is in an excellent location! You can walk and shop throughout the town from the hotel. The staff are very friendly and we enjoyed Preacher's pub. We had breakfast included in our rate and it is delicious. The rooms were clean but basic. A very good value in Ennis!

I have passed this hotel so many times but never actually stayed! I really liked it and would stay again. Its near 2 minutes walking from everything so its great. We ate in the bar and there was a good crowd and sing song in the evening too! The room was nice the only thing was the cleaners at 730am who talked so so loud and kept waking us up! The store room was directly across from us so they kept going in and out it was so annoying!!!I would ask for a different room and probably on a higher floor too. The breakfast was nice there were loads of staff on maybe a bit too much. The shower was really powerful which was good!

I stayed in Ennis my last night before heading back to Dublin for my flight home. There was plenty of free parking, the reception was very nice and friendly. My room was heated like a sauna when I got there which made it hard to get ready to go down to dinner - it was so hot I could hardly stand to be in there. I opened the window which looked out over the parking lot, and the door to the hall which got a breeze going thru the room. I called reception and they turned the heat off immediately and sent someone up with a fan. The room was nice and spacious, and the bathroom was clean and large. I went to eat at the restaurant which was lovely but on the expensive side so I decided to take my laptop to the pub and do pictures while I ate. The staff in the pub seemed not very attentive but I wasn't in a hurry. The menu was good for a pub - I had the Irish Stew with lamb which was tasty. I loved the decor of the pub - classic old wood. There was a musician which I thought was too loud but the people next to me were really enjoying it. The room was relatively quiet - I didn't hear anybody in the rooms next to me or below - just some revelers in the parking lot and the bed was comfortable. I had included breakfast which allowed me to choose from the menu as well as enjoying the buffet. The staff was rushed and brought me the wrong food initially but rectified it. Check out was quick and efficient (the same sweet girl was there as the night before). I had intended to go out and enjoy the pubs in Ennis which is why I chose this centrally located hotel, but ended up just enjoying the pub at the hotel.

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 menu is also very reasonably priced. We will be back, next time to try the early bird in the Legends Restaurant. Thank you the Temple Gate for a great experience as always
