Temple Gate Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Friendly staff at the reception We had a nice and comfortable room at the third floor. Beds were a bit bouncy but did sleep well. Breakfast was ok, with a choice of cooked items. What surprised me that there was no minibar in the hotel room. Granted the hotel has its own bar on the ground floor as well a restaurant. On Sunday evening Irish music was performed live in the Preachers bar. Free wifi

We stayed at Temple Gate with our CIE tour group. The hotel was very clean and roomy. The front desk was very helpful giving us a local map of the town of Ennis so that we could explore. T We ate lunch at the pub and it was plenty and delicious, but breakfast was delicious and the waitresses were delightful.

This facility is a four-star facility with clean & pleasant rooms, an enjoyable pub and refined restaurant. It is in the heart of town and close to everything in this picturesque, colorful and Disneyland-like town. The staff is friendly but the two who really made our time pleasant was Aidin I and Aidin II (Meave). Their welcoming natures and engaging styles really helped us better appreciate this town and County.

We stayed here for one night as part of a tour group. This was a typical hotel room - clean and basic. Our room had one double bed and one twin bed. The towels in the bathroom were small and scratchy, but the great water pressure in the shower made this one of the best hotel showers I've experienced. Guests must have their hotel key to access bedroom hallways. The buffet breakfast was just okay, but cooked-to-order choices were also available. This is not a luxury hotel, but it would be a good choice for one or two nights.

A little tough to get to since it is in the center of town- but once there it is lovely as the Irish would say. Parking is on site and amenities with restaurant and bar make it very convenient. It is centrally located, making walking around the beautiful town of Ennis easy and comfortable. The staff was most hospitable and professional. An easy drive from the airport at Shannon. A great introduction to the kindness and openness of the Irish people. There is no air conditioning which was a little surprise but we learned than none of the places we stayed during our two weeks in Ireland had it. But they were gracious to provide a fan for us. This is a beautiful hotel and I would highly recommend it.

I thought it was a very friendly atmosphere. The girls at the front desk were very professional, especially the two girls both named Maeve. Everyone was accommodating to our needs. Beds were very comfortable and the restaurants within the building were excellent. I definitely would go back again. Love to see that friendly staff working there again one day.

Location of the hotel is right in the heart of Ennis and perfect for getting around. But the rooms were dated and not as clean or modern as expected. Good choice for an overnight before heading to the airport but not worth the expense for anything longer.

Good location in Ennis... rooms are smallish but comfortable.... the hotel is surround by pubs so if you like your windows open at night you will be part of the revelry. 😉 Friendly staff, nice attached pub, decent wifi

Not traditionalists but we do return every year for our Anniversary Dinner and Night Out. Well this was our 7th year and things haven't changed it was as good as the day we got married, exceptional food, great service, friendly staff and management, lovely atmosphere. We've had 2 Christenings, numerous dinners and my 40th Birthday here and all flawless. This is a family run hotel and it definitely beats the commercial style, hands down. Thanks to Natasha the Duty Manager for taking such good care of us, just like she did on our wedding day, 5 * treatment. Thanks

Stayed in this hotel last week. It is in a great location in Ennis centre and also has lots of parking available. The staff were very nice and service was good. Room was spacious and clean.The only issue I had was cost of a double room. It was €139 for a double room with no breakfast which was €10 pp extra if required. I would like to return but would hope that the cost might reduce in the future.
