Reviewed 24 October 2013

We stayed for three nights over the weekend. The rooms were good, adequate in size and comfortable. There was considerable noise from late night revellers in the square, which our room overlooked but otherwise no complaints.

The restaurant looked very good but we chose to eat less formally in the bar. The food was excellent and the service very good. There was a gentle informal atmosphere in the bar, however the music provided on the Saturday night was questionable (one man and his organ!) and drove us from the bar, though I guess it would appeal to some.

Having left the bar we sat in the very comfortable drawing room/lounge and enjoyed our drinks there, so they have provided a retreat.

Breakfast was included in the price but would have been worth paying extra for. The food was plentiful and of excellent quality.

Overall would recommend this place.

Room Tip: Try to avoid rooms overlooking the square at weekends if you are a light sleeper and want to sleep b...

We stayed in a family room number 100.The second single bed was just added as an after thought.There was a damp smell in the room and cobwebs on the ceiling.The shower leaked all over the bathroom floor and was very dated.The bed side lamp was for show as it had a round 3 pinned plug really.The breakfast was ok but no choice of breads or god forbid croissants!!!!!!Poor value for 150 euro .

Dear Jo D,

Thank you for taking the time to send your feedback. We welcome all constructive feedback and look at any issues that may surface. It is most helpful to us to rectify where we have fallen short.
I am disappointed to read your comments regarding your bedroom and your observations have been discussed with the department manager. The bedside lamp has a 3 pin round plug for safety reasons, as the voltage needs to be lower.
It is regrettable that some of the selections from the breakfast buffet were already gone when you came for breakfast.
I hope that you will grant us the opportunity to restore your faith in the hotel some time in the future.

This is good hotel. Rooms are of a good size and the staff very helpful. It was quiet and bathrooms clean and tidy. Rooms were a little hot. Exec floor has slightly better rooms and controlled access which is nice.

Recently stayed in the temple gate hotel. This was our second visit there this year. I cannot praise the staff in the hotel enough. They are so friendly and helpful. The food in the hotel is also very good value. The hotel is located a minte from the centre of town so it's extremely convenient. We will be back. Teresa k

We had a lovely week here and was very impressed with the friendly professional service we received throughout our holiday. This hotel in right in the centre of Ennis and therefore you will not need a car to visit the local sites or go out at night which is really helpful.

The rooms are clean and nice. There is plenty of space for three adults. There was plenty of choice in the breakfast menus and they were all lovely. The Preachers Bar is great with nice pub grub and often great music too. I would definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: Try contacting the hotel as we got a better rate than using various internet sites

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.
