“Great location, lovely hotel!”
Reviewed 6 November 2012

Stayed here for 1 night. The hotel is very centrally located, only a minute from O'Connell Street. The staff were very friendly and the rooms were clean and comfortable. There was free parking too. We had a very enjoyable stay :)

Stayed in this hotel Sat night 6th October with a group of girls. Rooms were beautiful and spotlessly clean. The staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful and you couldn't possibly get any more central !!! Will definately be returning for another stay.

Myself and 5 friends stayed here on a business trip recently. We had no problem checking in late, around midnight, and were met by a friendly and helpful staff member. The rooms were of a good size, clean and not too hot or stuffy and had very comfortable beds. The bathroom was bigger than usual and had a nice shower. The only downside was that two of the towels had black marks on them. The towels were obviously recently washed, but these were the kind of marks that don't wash off. It wasn't anything to get upset over, but it was the only negative point to my stay here.

Dear Karen D,
Thank you for your glowing feedback following your recent stay with us. In particular your comments on staff throughout the various departments are great testament to the level of service we hope we continuously offer to our guests. I appreciate that my thoughts regarding the food served in Preachers Pub are strongly biased but I do believe it is probably the best bar food in the region! However I am delighted that this was endorsed with the award, judged by neutral observers, “Best Place to Eat in Clare”. And I agree the mussels are truly scrumptious!
We look forward to welcoming you on your next visit to Temple Gate Hotel in the near future.
Kind regards

Arriving in Ennis not having booked anywhere to stay we stumbled across the Temple Gate hotel and were able to book a room at a reasonable price. It was a change from the B & B's we had been staying in with minimalist decor. The hotel has a luxurious feel with very comfortable beds and fluffy towels. Breakfast was included and was adequate. The staff were friendly and helpful.
