“Perfect stay in Ennis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2013

Stayed at the Temple Gate for two nights in April 2013. This hotel is in an excellent central location in Ennis, close to the city centre and next door to a large shopping complex. Hotel staff were more than accomodating. Rooms were large and spotless. The pub on premises has superb food and a great atmosphere. Would stay here again and recommend the place highly.

Room Tip: I would book above ground floor due to ground floor rooms proximity to the sidewalk.

Really nice hotel right beside Ennis main street. Staff were helpful, room was very nice and breakfasts were great too. Lovely wooden ceilings in some of the areas of the hotel eg. bar. Difficult to find fault with this establishment and I can certainly recommend it for a stay in Ennis.

Was our great fortune to find this fabulous gem of a hotel where we stayed only two nights. We've stayed in hotels all over the world and non surpass the dedication of this family run hotel to excellence in every aspect of operation. The staff is exceptional top to bottom, unbelievably friendly and accomodating. You can tell they are completely and totally dedicated to their guest. Where do they find these people? Very genuine. Do yourself a favor if you are ever in Ennis and stay at The Temple Gate. I assure you that you will be glad you did. We look forward to staying at the Temple Gate as soon as we return to Ireland....can't wait!

Temple Gate was right smack dab in the middle of Ennis so we walked around all 3 days and probably didn't need our rental car once we landed there...

Great Pub attached and the dinner meals we all traditional and very good...

Walk to the museum right out the back door and then down the main streets to many
pubs, restaurants, and shops with the friendliest people on Earth !

A delayed review as I waited to see if management would reply to emails but they chose not to. Hotel was under maintenance at the time, no apology given for noise in early morning. Workmen at window level on upper floor (via use of cherry picker) singing and shouting to coworker while window was open. Woke me from sleep in fright, thinking someone was in the room! As a lone traveller I found this very frightening at 0700 - 0730 am!! Duty manager offered to discuss matter while I was eating breakfast in dining room, no privacy or courtesy given. Despite repeated emails, I never received a reply whereas another guest, who complained using same managers email address did receive an apology! Obviously British guests do not receive the same courtesy as foreign ones. Also Wifi not available on executive level. Room disappointing shabby given executive status. Unfortunate as hotel did have potential to be better.

Thank you for taking the time to inform us of your experience at Temple Gate Hotel.

I am concerned to hear that your e mails were not responded to. Although it is no excuse, we did have a change in personnel shortly after your visit, which may account for you not receiving a response to your e mails. As you will see from other traveler reviews this would not be our normal standard. We would generally respond to all e mails that come to our attention, both positive and negative.

I agree that you should have been offered an opportunity to discuss the matter in private, at a time more convenient to you. We endeavor to ensure the safety and comfort of all our guests and regret as a lone traveler you felt uneasy.

We have recently upgraded our Wifi to a fibre broadband, making it faster and improving the service we offer our guests. I regret that you were disappointed with our executive rooms, your feedback will undoubtedly help us to improve our facilities.

I would very much like to discuss these matters further should you wish to, perhaps I could contact you if you were to e mail me your details to nfuery@templegatehotel.com.

Booked on the day via hotels.com. Got a good rate. Phoned hotel to confirm reservation. Spoke with Claire. The period we stayed was the hottest for a lot of years in Ireland. few hotels have A/C. Asked if there would be any chance of a fan. Arrived in evening. Allocated a quiet room as requested. Room in great order. Also a fan. Seemingly borrowed from the accounts department.
Sometimes it's the little things that make a great good. Didn't try the restaurant. Heard others saying it was nice.

Room Tip: Nice helpful place -ask for a quiet room if you want one
