Very nice hotel and very close to the square. Staff was very accommodating. Arrived after our flight earlier in the morning. The staff were able to get us to a room Nice rooms, very quiet, with comfortable beds. No electrical plug in bath for hair styling. Unable to use a curling iron, even with a converter. No safe in rooms.... More

First of all Ennis is a lovely town that is clean, quaint, & charming. The Temple Gate Hotel is right in the center of all the action. One can walk anywhere from here. Also very handy is bus stop right outside that takes passengers to Limmerick. A 4-5 minute walk puts one right at the main train & bus station.... More

We get there he greats us and then he places his hands on my 11year old daughters shoulder... More

Temple Gate Hotel is rated as a 4 star, but shouldn't be. The main positives here: walking distance to the Friary, Clare Museum and Ennis Main Street. It has a very average pub type restaurant / sports bar, and the staff worked hard to meet my requests. For example, I was given a room with a mold problem on the... More

Used this as our overnight stay hotel when we were on a bike trip down to visit Father Teds house, great location and came across this hotel by chance. Got it on a deal through group-on or one of those sites for £120, for a couple staying and the evening meal, so fantastic deal. We ate in the restaurant and... More

The coffee shop next door, Mocha, even had almond milk. The Temple Gate Hotel was formerly a convent for the Sisters of Mercy. And the city of 25,000 had at... More

This hotel right in the centre of Ennis could do with a little TLC/refurb, and definitely needs better pillows (v uncomfortable!). The TV light was flickering throughout the night too which didn't help with sleep, and there was no hot veggie breakfast option. All that aside, the lady on reception was lovely, the location is great and the price average... More

Interesting town with very few mainstream hotels. If you're on a tour and want to be walking distance to the town, this is where you'll stay. Breakfast service adequate with bare-bones buffet and order off the menu service. Rooms small, poorly appointed and, although clean, a distasteful smell in the bathroom. Pub overmatched for staffing level; people clearly sitting and... More

I stayed at the Temple Gate for 1 night at the end of June. The hotel was chosen for me by a tour company and was part of a 7-day multi-city tour of Ireland. It is located in the middle of Ennis, and it is a very short walk from the hotel to the middle of town. Our tour group... More
