“Great hotel, it just gets better and better!”
Reviewed 9 October 2009

We had our wedding reception in the Temple Gate and they truly helped to make the day memorably and stress-free. Nothing was too much trouble. Even more importantly, our guests all commented on the comfort of the hotel, the delicious and generously-portioned food and the helpfulness and friendliness of the staff. It was a pleasure to deal with the staff from the first conversation to the last and I couldn't recommend it more highly as a wedding venue.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review and sharing your feedback following your wedding with us. Your comments have been shared with all staff and in particular with Geraldine, Wedding Coordinator at Temple Gate Hotel. The Great Hall, the banqueting hall at the hotel is a unique setting for wedding receptions. The history of the hotel is most evident in the Great Hall. Vaulted ceilings and oak beams combine to create the most original wedding venue in the region.
Our chef and his team were delighted with comments relating to food and service by you and your guests.
Thank you again for your comments. They will assure other “brides to be” of the level of service they can expect on their special day at Temple Gate Hotel.

I made a return trip to the Temple Gate Hotel two weekends ago with 3 of my friends. I was delighted to see that the hotel is still as excellent as it was one year and indeed two years ago. We got an excellent deal on the current 'getaway break' that the hotel has on offer.
The staff were extremely helpful, the food in 'Legends Restaurant' was excellent (€23 for a delicious Early Bird)! and the hotel was immaculately clean as it always has been. There was a great buzz around the town of Ennis on Saturday afternoon, it is lovely to visit such a pretty town where people are so friendly and have time to chat and interact.

It is very much appreciated that you took the time to share your experience on Trip Advisor. You comments have been shared with the team at the hotel. Your comments will assure others of the level of service they will receive when they visit the hotel. Legends Restaurant has been awarded an AA Rosette each year since 1996. However as you have experienced, prices do not necessarily reflect that of an award winning restaurant. We look forward to welcoming you back at Temple Gate Hotel on your next visit to Ennis town.

We booked the Temple Gate hotel in Ennis on a bit of a flyer, doing it online. We were delighted with the hotel, the staff, the restaurant (I highly recommend their Irish Stew!) and the location. We wished we had more time to spend in Ennis, a wonderful town rich in history and culture. As we reflected on our three week trip to Ireland, we both agreed that the Temple Gate and Ennis were one of our highlights.

We greatly appreciate you taking the time to write a review of our hotel.
Your gracious comments regarding the Irish Stew are welcomed by our Chef and his team.
It is great to hear that both Temple Gate Hotel and Ennis town were one of the highlights of your visit to Ireland. Your reference to both as "A gem in a jewel of a place" is delightful and possibly could be used in future marketing campaigns!
We look foward to welcoming you back to the hotel in the near future.

We stayed there on the August bank holiday and also had a murder mystery meal there on the Saturday night. The staff in the hotel are wonderful, I would like to especially thank the very lovely Kate for all of her help in organizing the Murder Mystery evening and making our stay so comfortable and enjoyable.

The location is fantastic, the food is great in the bar and in the hotel. This was my second time staying in the Temple Gate hotel and I would absolutely stay there again.

Stayed here our last night before heading home through Shannon Airport. Classy hotel. Stayed in one of the executive rooms. Very modern!! Very clean and comfortable bed. Chocolates were a nice addition. We ate at the Preacher's pub, great food, great drinks. Good service throughout hotel. We'd stay here again, very good location as well.

We were advised this was one of the best hotels in Ennis.Stayed here for one night .Room was dark and stuffy.Smelt dusty and decor very tired and oldfashioned.Lighting very poor especially in bathroom.Carpet very stained.Complained to receptionist who said they were full and could not transfer us to another room. Breakfast OK but would definitley not stay here again especially at 130 euros per night !

Thank you for your comments regarding your stay at Temple Gate Hotel.We take all feedback seriously and bring it to the attention of staff to help improve customer service at the hotel.It is regrettable that you were not happy with your visit. The hotel underwent extensive refurbishment in 2008, evidence of which I hope you will have noticed throughout the hotel. While many of the bedrooms also underwent refurbishment, some bedrooms are awaiting the next phase of refurbishment.
I hope you will give us the opportunity to renew your faith in Temple Gate Hotel.
