Stayed for a Hen weekend last weekend and couldn't fault the place. There was a number of girls there for 2 nights, a few of us could only make it for one night and they only charged us per person instead of per room which was great!

Very reasonably priced, we got b&b and a 3 course dinner which was delicious. The wait staff were lovely, especially Jim from Malaysia...he was so friendly and helpful!!!

The brekkie was delicious. Very central location so within walking distance for everything!!

Would definitely recommend it!

The Temple Gate is a great value hotel right in the heart of a great small town on the west of Ireland. Check in was a breeze, the room was cozy and bright, parking was free, and wifi was available right throughout the hotel for free.

Being so central means you can visit the many bars in town for a pint, and enjoy the traditional music sessions without worrying about the cost of a taxi fare back to an out of town hotel.

Breakfast the next morning was filling and set us up for the journey ahead.

I highly recommend Ennis as a great tourist spot, and strongly recommend the Temple Gate as a great place to stay for your trip.
