Temple Gate Hotel
Ranked #3 of 9 Hotels in Ennis
Reviewed 23 April 2012

My sisters and I stayed at the Temple Gate while my father was in hospital in Ennis. The staff were so helpful and were very accommodating. From bringing us tea in the library, to accommodating our shifting schedule, they were happy to help. The hotel is in a pretty square, close to the centre of town. The pub in the hotel serves good hot meals. The hotel is not fancy, but it is clean and the beds were comfortable. If I had to go back to Ennis, I would stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room looking on the square.

We chose the Temple Gate as our wedding venue because of the location and the magnificent great hall. In the weeks running up to our wedding Geraldine was great with all our requests,from organising Scotish haggis on our menu. Every thing we asked to do was catered for, from having out first dance outside in the hotels court yard to putting out our favours for our guests.
The Hall/function room was so well laid out for out meal. The hotel arranged the flowers on the top table and center pieces. The food was excellent and our friends have all been reminding us of what wonderful day and evening they all had.
All the staff were so friendly and helpfull even in the small hours of the night and early in the morning. Thanks to all the staff who looked after us, Sarah and Dave.

It was a pleasure to host your wedding day. The Great Hall is a very unique venue with its stained glass, vaulted ceilings and oak beams. It is possibly not a venue easily found in your homeland of America. Despite the distance barrier, with the advantage of new age technology, we found the planning and organisation of your day a very easy task. It was all the more interesting and enjoyable accommodating your unusual and quirky requests. We appreciate your time in sharing your experience with the Trip Advisor community and hopefully it might encourage further over sea Bridal couples to celebrate their Wedding Day with us. We are delighted to provide a bespoke wedding in a unique venue. We look forward to welcoming you a return visit to Temple Gate Hotel.
Kind regards

Ennis is a wonderful place to visit and stay. The Temple Gate Hotel fits in perfectly as it is large and professional and clean and all that you expect in a nice hotel/venue, yet it doesn't feel like a big hotel in this quaint, darling town. Its just a short walk from the restaurants, boutiques and pubs. The rooms were updated and well cared for, the lobby and event space was comfortable, parking was free, the staff was very accomodating and the food was SPECTACULAR! The only slightly negative thing about our 3 night stay at the Temple Gate was that the wifi (which was FREE, what a great bonus!) was a little spotty/slow. We were part of a group of about 50 who were there for a wedding.... the reception was in the old sanctuary banquet space. What a LOVELY venue and the food and staff was truly remarkable.

This hotel is right in the centre of Ennis with free parking, free Wifi and easy access to the town. The service was friendly and the hotel was very cozy. Our room was pretty standard but was very clean and comfortable. We had dinner in Preacher's Pub which is the hotel bar which is absolutely lovely. This was one of my favorite hotels we stayed in during our trip to Ireland in 2012. I highly recommend it (and dinner in Preacher's).

Stayed at the Temple Gate while traveling with a tour group. Hotel was clean and staff friendly. Nice location right in the center of town Could easily walk anywhere you wanted to go. The pub located within the hotel was nice and offered good food at a reasonable price. Hotel was within walking distance to many pubs so drinking and driving was not an issue. Check in was a breeze and staff delivered our luggage within minutes of our arrival.

Stayed here two nights in March. We were touring with a group. Check in was as easy as could be. They had all our room keys ready and waiting for us. The staff were curtious and friendly. Hotel is a little dated but it didn't bother us. We had two rooms that were both clean. The location was nice as we could go explore the town with out a car. The breakfast was included in our tour. There were enough food choices to fill everybody for the morning. We loved the decor in the preachers pub and got a great meal there. I would highly recommend this hotel to a friend.
