Hen party

Hi all, planning a hen party in ennis this summer. Thinking of staying in either the temple gate or old ground hotel in ennis! Could anyone recommend a nice restaurant for lunch and for dinner on the saturday night for about 15 people. Also any recommendations for pubs and nightclubs!

Both the Temple Gate and Old Ground are right in the centre of town, so you will have a perfect location in either.

Both hotels have very good restaurants where you could have dinner on the Saturday night and would cope with a large group.

The Town Hall restaurant in the Old Ground is fabulous.

If you would like someplace more casual for dinner, have a look at coco, which is good for large groups also.


One of my favourite restaurants for lunch is the Rowan Tree.


You would defintely need to book for dinner on a Saturday night, especially with a large group and I would recommend booking for lunch also.

For pubs you can just start at the top of O'Connell Street and work your way down the town.

For late night bars, check out Knox's, Yolo and Cruises, which are all close to each other.

The only nightclub in town is at the Queen's Hotel, which is where Cruises is located. Most people would stay in one of the late night bars rather than going to the nightclub, as the would have music until quite late.

If you have a booking for 15, email the hotels and see what deal they will do which includes the evening meal.

If you cant get a good deal then contact Paddy or Freda at Brogans for some good pub food. Probably music on Saturday night as well.

It just struck me that Knox's might be good for the dinner on Saturday night. It is very casual and would be good for a large group.


The bar downstairs is very lively on Saturday nights.
