I recently was in Ireland with a group of 29 people to celebrate a birthday. We stayed at the Temple Gate Hotel in Ennis. What an incredible find. The hotel was beautiful and the location was incredible. The town of Ennis is so charming and Temple Gate is in an easy walk to everything in town. In addition it was so centrally located that we could make daytrip's to other beautiful places in Ireland, including Galway, the Cliffs of Moher, Spanish point, and the wild Atlantic way. The staff was just wonderful. One person was nicer than the next. The breakfast was delicious and a great way to start our day each day. I am sincerely missing my rack of toast and awesome hot breakfasts. The restaurant and pub staff were fun, funny, and just overall great. The pub is just beautiful, and in that room strangers became friends. The reception staff was so welcoming and accommodating. The rooms were comfortable, and the stay there was comforting. Organizing a group that size was made simple by of the help at this hotel. I can't wait to visit again someday. It is a must stay in Ireland!!!

Temple Gate Hotel is a great place to stay, its in a perfect location, nice accommodations and a great staff. Cant say enough about my families stay at the hotel. Hope someday to return to the beautiful island of Ireland and the sweet city of Ennis, I would definitely stay at the Temple Gate Hotel again!

Recently visited this hotel it was clean and comfortable , staff at the front desk were friendly and helpful, the only complaint I would have is that they could have provided us with a bottle of water in the bedroom

Traveled with a large group of 29 celebrating a birthday. I cannot say enough positive things about this hotel. From the hearty, delicious breakfast each morning, to the convenience of location to shopping, bus and train, to the serenity of the library, to the welcoming staff in the Preacher's Pub each evening--I would highly recommend this hotel. After spending 3 days in the hustle and bustle of Dublin, this hotel provided a comfortable, homey feeling. Happy staff, happy travelers! You have won me over and I cannot wait to return with my family! Well done, Temple Gate Hotel.

Great location just outside of town but near to the the theatre where we were attending a nearby gig. Booked an executive room which required card to access corridor. Standard size bed in I felt a small room. No breakfast included. Room had bottled water and lollipops for guests!? Have stayed in nicer executives rooms.

There were 26 of us travelling from Glasgow to pay some music in Ennis - this was our fifth trip to the Temple Gate Hotel and it was a good as we remembered - the staff, the food, the drink and camaraderie were wonderful .... the owner, John Madden, even turned out to welcome us. We'll be back.

Stayed in the Temple Gate with my wife on a recent overnight stay in Ennis. Really great location in the centre of town. Comfortable room. Very welcoming . Will be returning. Breakfast was good. Again very friendly service.

This hotel is stunning in appearance and welcome in accommodations. My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary and couldn't have been more pleased. The bar is fantastic with good food, rich atmosphere and attentive service. The room was comfortable with a large bathroom and soft pillows. The drapes were heavy and kept the room dark but the room was cheery with a bright Irish morning when opened. We also had a traditional Irish breakfast that was delicious. I would highly recommend this location for its charm and service.

I recently enjoyed a long weekend in Ennis County Clare Ireland. I stayed at the gorgeous Temple Gate Hotel. A former Sisters of Mercy convent it has everything you need- very comfortable beds, en suite bathroom, Preachers Pub open afternoon and night with great food and trad music on weekends, Legends restaurant which is fine dining is also where breakfast is served. Located right off the town center it is also only a 15 minute easy walk to the train station which has service to Galway and Dublin. Staff was fabulous and very helpful any time I had a question. Close to all Wild Atlantic Way sights like the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren it is the perfect place to stay if you fly into Shannon Airport or if you are coming to the west of Ireland from Dublin. Would love to return !

I was staying in this hotel three times for several weeks this winter and spring. Absolutely loved it! The friendliest staff I have ever met! Guys, wanna thank all of you for making my long stays so comfortable and so homelike. The rooms are okay, warm in winter with a radiator switched on. The location is perfect, in the heart of the town, with pubs, bars and shops nearby, and a large Dunnes store within a walking distance. The food is amazing, loved everything we tried there, especially salmon, stew and desserts! Live music at weekends at the bar was great)) I would definitely love to be back! Thanks again, really had a blast :)
