Only spent one night here while on a CIE Tour. We found the staff to be pleasant and accommodating. Surely would have enjoyed more time. The town was delightful with many shops to explore. My husband and I enjoyed an early morning walk- my excuse to photograph the town without dodging people. The town was pristine and lovely. Would love to return someday.

My wife and I and a friend spent one night here and had a wonderful experience. The hotel is
located right in the heart of Ennis one half block from its main thoroughfare. Was very impressed
with the hotel with internet available throughout the hotel. The Preacher's Pub was outstanding
with great food as well as drinks. Would come here again.

My wife and I stayed here for one night. We were meeting with relatives home from America and this was a convenient location for all of us to meet. We found the staff very friendly and efficient. We eat in the bar while watching the All-Ireland Hurling Final. The food was very good and piping hot, as you would expect. The room was comfortable and spacious. In the morning we all had the Full Irish cooked breakfast. There was also a good selection of breads, cereals and fruit. The hotel is located in what used to be a convent and is tastefully decorated to enhance the arches and other beautiful features of the former convent. My American relatives were very impressed, also, with the decor. We will be back.

Just stayed for one night but wished it could have been longer. The hotel is ideally located near everything that matters in Ennis. There is secure parking at the hotel & the centre is a mere one minute walk from the Hotel. The bar is staffed by smartly dressed young people who provide a great service with a smile. The food is also very good in the bar but if you want to try elsewhere there are lots of other places within short walking distance. The breakfast is excellent & again the is great variety & nothing seems to be a problem for the pleasant waitresses. Last but not least, the accommodation is spacious, clean & comfortable with very good ensuite. I will look forward to returning to the Templegate

Room Tip: Book early. This place seems to be very busy - no wonder.

It was a rainy day and we were trying to get from the Dingle Peninsula to the Cliffs of Mohr. However, we decided to stay in Ennis and just wait on the weather. The people at the Temple Gate were fabulous, as was our room. The hotel was originally a convent and the decor, Gothic arches, stained glass windows and beautiful wood added to the ambiance. It was a perfect location and respite from the rain as well as B&Bs (where we wouldn't have felt as comfortable just lounging around the day watching TV). Claire, at the front desk, went out of her way to make our stay special.

Stayed in The Temple Gate for 3 nights over the Aug bank holiday wkend with my husband. The location is amazing just off the Main Street.
Staff extremely friendly and welcoming. Our room was spotless with a nice view over looking the court yard. Ate in bar on 2 nights which was tasty.
Ennis is a lovely place to go out in with lots of nice bars and restaurants. It is a great base for sightseeing around Clare. Would recommend The Temple Gate Hotel.
