“Great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2012

This hotel is "town central." Everything is close by/walking distance. We actually had dinner in the hotel at the pub and found it much better than we experienced elsewhere -- plus the atmosphere was great! There was a hurling match in town and many of the players were there -- great fun. The rooms were very comfortable (king bed!) and there is good wifi reception. Overall the staff was very accomodating, especially Natasha, who took extra care with our requests. If you plan on visiting the Cliffs of Moher, this is a good base. Also, if arriving from an international flight and sleep deprived, Ennis is a short drive.

Dear ddb8,
Thank you for taking the time to post your review and sharing it with the Trip Advisor community. The hotels’ proximity to Shannon Airport makes it a popular overnight destination for people departing from or arriving in Shannon. It is also an ideal base when visiting all the unique attractions dotted throughout Clare which I am delighted to read you enjoyed. I have shared you comments with Natasha and the all staff at the hotel and they look forward to welcoming you on your next visit to Temple Gate Hotel.
Kind regards

In the last 5 years I have stayed 6 times at the Temple Gate Hotel and find it to be comfortable and welcoming every single time. My recent November 2012 visit was no exception. Its central location makes it perfect for exploring and town and environs. On site parking is a plus. The staff are pleasant and accommodating to special requests, e.g. storing bags, flexible check in/out, tips for nearby restaurants and services. Rooms are comfortable and quiet. Preachers pub has a good all day menu with variety of dishes at decent prices. The recent addition of free wifi in all guest rooms seals the deal.

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floor are especially nice.

We recently stayed in this hotel for one night. From the moment we walked through the door until the moment we left we were made to feel so welcome. We found our room to be excellent and the bed was super comfortable. What makes this place so special is the friendly staff and the very welcoming atmosphere. The food served in the bar ( we didn't have a chance to try the fine dining restaurant but will certainly try that on our next visit) as well as breakfast the next morning was outstanding. I would definitely recomend this hotel to anyone visiting the lovely town of Ennis and we will certainly be back!

We spent the weekend at this lovely, cosy hotel. Very nice interior, and excellent high quality food at Preachers restaurant, with beautiful pates, sirloin steaks from the region, burden smoked salmon and great wine collection.

Next to that the staff has been wonderful to us and we have enjoyed every single minute of our stay. Definitely back here with more trips to the cliffs of moher and the Burden.

A recent short notice trip resulted in me booking this little gem of a hotel at short notice.
From the phone call booking to the pleasant reception on arrival, I couldn't have been made more welcome. I felt they were falling over me to ensure I had all I needed.
The room was just fantastic, warm and welcoming.
I decided to try the Preachers bar for dinner( I had been given a 10% discount voucher on arrival)
Again, the staff we very warm and welcoming, the food was just great. the atmosphere was pleasant and the background music relaxing.
Breakfast next morning was freshly made from a choice selection, with plenty of tea and coffee and fresh fruits and hot baked goods.
I was so impressed, I plan to bring my wife very soon to this gem of a hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms away from elevator and service lockers a big help. No AC unit in the room I was in, but warm r...
