Positive Reviews

The hotel is centrally located

Temple Gate Hotel is located in the heart of Ennis and is within easy walking distance of restaurants, pubs and eclectic shops, as well as many local attractions.

The staff is knowledgeable

A friendly, multilingual staff does everything they can to make you feel at home from the moment you walk through the door. They are happy to accommodate most any request and are knowledgeable about the history of the property and surrounding area. The concierge can easily point you in the direction of places to dine and drink, as well as the many popular attractions located nearby.

The rooms have been updated recently

The guest rooms have recently been updated and are spotlessly clean and fresh. Comfortable beds made up with crisp linens and large, fluffy towels make your stay a relaxing one.

Negative Reviews

Some rooms are smaller than others

Some of the guest rooms here are small which could be disappointing as most rooms are rather spacious. If you are travelling with more than one person or you need extra room to manoeuvre, you might want to ask for a larger accommodation.

There's no air conditioning in the guest rooms

There is no air conditioning in the guest rooms which means they can get uncomfortably warm in the summer months.

Things can get noisy

Because Temple Gate Hotel hosts a lot of weddings and large tour groups, you may find that there is a lot of noise from various festivities and in the corridors may spill over in to your room.
