“Ennis is a great place to visit.”
Reviewed 19 November 2011

we went to ennis for the trad music and ennis is buzzing, its a great place to visit.
we stayed in the temple gate hotel and it was ok. Nothing out of the ordinary here
bar service slow and staff not very friendly.Rooms were large but only average.
Hotel is in a good location, within walking distance
to anywhere in ennis. We didn't book breakfast but we had a meal when we arrived and again it was only ok, we were hungry after our journey and it filled a gap, but we didn't eat here again as there are plenty of nice places to eat locally.
As I said ennis is buzzing a great place to visit
we will be back but we will stay in a different hotel.

Thank you for taking the time to share your comments following your stay at Temple Gate Hotel. I am delighted that you enjoyed your visit to the Ennis Trad Festival however it is disappointing that the hotel did not meet with your expectations.It is also regrettable that you did not express your concern during your stay when we would have addressed any specific issues. While your feedback was the only negative feedback we received during the weekend it is disappointing to read it. I hope you will grant us an opportunity in the future to restore your faith in the hotel. Please contact me directly if you would like to return to Temple Gate Hotel.
Kind regards

Unfortunately we only got to stay one night before we feft the country. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, no noise, great night's sleep. Upon check-in, Kate phoned Bunratty castle for us to arrange a dinner at the medieval feast although I could have sworn that no spaces were available when I checked their website myself. Kate also arranged for a taxi to Bunratty. I will return.

Ennis was the last stop :( on a wonderful tour of Ireland. My room was clean and very comfortable, probably the best bed I slept on all week, and all were good. Food was wonderful and staff very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable about the history of the building. I would highly recommend Temple Gate Hotel for anyone visiting Ennis.

I recently had the chance to experience the carvery in the pub at the Temple Gate Hotel, Ennis.
We were just walking in town so it was purely a case we end eating in this place but we were
delighted in the end. The chef was at the carvery station describing all the choices, staff was very friendly and patients with the kids and the pub was clean and the food excellent. The chowder was one of the best eaten so far in the west of Ireland. Great experience, & good food. We shall return.

Excellent stay over three nights. Staff were really attentive and helpful, food was good, music wasn't our cup of tea but was ok, anyway plenty of music in the town if you want to venture out.
The reception staff had our arrival dates wrong and realising their error upgraded us to an executive room. We were well pleased !

I recently had the chance to expierence the highly aclaimed "Legends" restaurant in the Temple Gate Hotel, Ennis. It has received many awards over the last ten years for its wonderful cuisine. Days prior to my visit, I was discovered to be positive for coelice disease,
I was a bit lost as to the full extent to the foods that were now off limits to me. I adviced the waiting staff of my predictment and was immediately put at ease, the staff informed me of what choices were open to me and even made suggestions that were not on the menu. Excellent experience, good food (despite my restrictions), will return.
