Deborah D's review, which I will quote here sums it up for me
"We booked this online based upon reviews "#2 hotel " in Ennis. I cannot imagine the others if this is ranked that high! Older furnishings, no hair dryer, no water kettle, stuffy (no ac) and a higher price in comparison to ALL places I've stated over 17 days ALL over Ireland. $120 euros = $163 US No coffee, no tea. Nada. The location is great, room is clean."
Our room was 155 Euros and about $210, so I guess its even worse. The pluses were excellent location, friendly staff, good parking and nice attached pub. We stayed in the Old Ground Hotel, about two blocks away the night before for about 15 Euros less and the Old Ground was way better in every aspect. It was a 4 star type hotel, where this is a two star hotel for more money than the Old Ground. Unfortunately the Old Ground was booked up the next night and we had to stay in the Temple Gate. Do yourself a favor and stay somewhere else, unless you are paying about 60 to 70 Euros at the Temple Gate. This place is about equal in room and furnishings to the typical budget oriented Super 8 Motel in the US to give you an idea of what you are in for.
