We spent a few nights here while in town for a wedding. The staff was very friendly and the rooms were nice. Nothing fancy but clean and nice. The wedding was amazing. So beautiful and again the staff was great! I would stay here again if ever in the area!

Had a party in the town to attend so booked the temple gate because of the location. Staff were lovely, very welcoming and helpful. Room was very clean and had everything you might need. Bed was a little lumpy and room was very warm during the night buy besides that we enjoyed our stay. We would definitely book it again

Recently spent a night at this hotel. It is rated 4 star yet everything was substandard. Bedding, mattress cheap coffee sachets, old bathrobes, terrible bathroom. Nearly did ourselves an injury trying to reach the toilet roll holder, tap fittings ancient and grimy. Very disappointed, was offered a free night for our complaint, yet this would hardly be helpful unless they...

We stayed at the Temple Gate just before Christmas. The hotel was busy with parties which we expected. However, we did specifically ask for a quiet room if at all possible, however, I feel we were put in the noisiest room in the property. Right over the side door, people out smoking at all hours, so noisy. The room overlooked...

We stayed here one night between Christmas and New Year to attend a wedding. The reception team were very welcoming and friendly and extremely helpful. Rooms are fine but a bit dated as are the bathrooms and definitely the towels which are old and grey. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean though. The service in the bar and for...

We paid $150 aud for two, breakfast included. The hotel is well situated right in the centre of town, close to pubs and restaurants. The rooms are basic but comfortable, good beds and proper showers after a week of electric showers! We didn't make it too breakfast so can't comment on that!

A friend and I stayed at Temple Gate in September 2016 on my way to Clonmany, County Donegal to meet my father's 5th cousins. Catherine and Louise were the receptionists during our 5 night stay. I must say, THEY were the greatest! They were very helpful in sharing ideas for travel and places to see. We used Ennis as our...

Shockingly Slow service with more than enough staff. Cakes and deserts ok. On a plus note, coffee was great, hot chocolate lively. But Guinness could be a lot better. Staff are friendly. They just need to be far more attentive
