Myself my husband and four other couples from around the world stayed at this lovely hotel In feb, I was pleasantly surprised with the decor and ambience inside, the pub grub was delicious and reasonable, the staff were more than helpful (I forgot my laptop for a presentation, and they went out of their way to set me up in a private meeting room with all the equipment I needed) the staff were extremely helpful with regard to direction etc, nothing seemed to be a problem for them, location of this hotel is very central for the town, would I stay here again ..... absolutely !!

Wow the staff in this hotel are second to none in Ireland, I have never experienced such care and friendliness in all areas of the hotel, a credit to management. A definite asset to any hotel- keep up the good work. The food served throughout our stay was delicious, I will be back.

Ennis was booked everywhere in July for Sept and so i got a room here...thought it was for a double but whe i checked in all they had was the big family was not warm or with character but it was clean....and only for one night. It was raining so hard I did not want to walk anywhere after traveling all day. The room they use for weddings was an old wonderful room with the old flags and very medieval...the bar-lounge was ok..noisy cause of the games..lots of food but not really good....

The location is very central, the staff couldn't do enough for you and were all very friendly. The room was very clean, basic but suited our needs. Breakfast was great. No complaints at all. wouldn't hesitate to return the next time we are in Ennis.

We stayed here one night. The room was large but nothing exciting. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was a good size. It’s quite a step to get into the tub though. I don’t know how an elderly person would do it. They have a cute pub on premises. Their breakfast was good. They had cereal, breads, fruit, yogurt, meats, cheeses, croissants..... They also served us a hot breakfast with scrambled eggs, sausage and toast. Quaint little place and very nice. I would stay again.

Room was clean if rather plain . Staff are very good and helpful. Couldn't stay for breakfast as it only was served from 7am we had to catch the 07:45 to Dublin. Free car parking was helpful . Will stay again.

A dehumidifier was on all night in the room above me so got no sleep. The breakfast was good but choice not fantastic. Took a long time for the coffee to arrive and when it did I was already finished my breakfast.

A fabulous hotel, located in the center. Staff are incredibly friendly and breakfast is good. the room is big and clean. excellent service. Buses stop right in front for trips to landmarks in Ireland.

We stopped here for dinner on Friday evening. The place had a great buzz of Christmas about it. People in the Christmas spirit and traditional music in the background. The food was delicious and served to us within ten minutes. Home cooked goujons, stew and cod were amazing.

The Temple Gate is ideally located in the centre of Ennis, the rooms are clean and comfortable, the price is affordable and the staff were friendly, accommodating and helpful throughout. We recently stayed in the Temple Gate over the Christmas break and would recommend it highly - perfect for families and/or a group of friends alike.
