        Excellent location; centre of town but lots of parking

        No leisure facilities, but we knew that when booking. residents' bar closed very early!

        Hotel location is good but is very difficult to find and after having made 3 phone calls from within the city finally got directions to the hotel carpark. The latitude and longitude don't get you to the front of the hotel, only to the street which can only be accessed by foot, ut the catch there is no where to park.

        The Library room and Preachers bar were good

        I felt that the quality was not as good as it was made out to be having to change rooms due to faulty plumbing and doors

        Location was excellent. What I was looking for - staying fir one night in Ennis -- good quality hotel, no fuss, efficient.

        Had a little bit of trouble with the cold taps.

        Rooms need refurbishing, odour in room feeling of drabness.

        I liked that we were in the center of things. We came for the music festival, and it was very nice to be able to walk to where we wanted to go. The staff was extremely helpful about showing us where to find pubs, etc.

        It is pricey, though. We have been staying in bed and breakfasts so to spend what we spent without breakfast was a lot of euros and not as much value. I don't know if it was because of the festival or not. However, there was a sign up on a wall near the hotel that was advertising a room for 69 euros so even considering that we had an executive room, that's about 90 euros more than we spent.

        We enjoyed the friendly but classy atmosphere of the hotel. The staff were faultless and were helpful at all times. The fact that we were upgraded was an added bonus which we did not expect. We enjoyed the fact that the Hotel was situated within walking distance of the small winding steets of Ennis. I would thoroughly recommend it to other guests and if the All Ireland Dancing Championships are back in Ennis in two years time we will be staying here again.

        Firstly I loved the location. A few steps to the centre of Ennis & easy access by car. But the lovely decor, comfort & cleaniness throughout were a delight. The bedrooms were neat & clean. The staff were so friendly & helpful. The breakfast was great too, very fresh. I'd highly recommend the Temple Gate for short & long stays.

        The location of the Hotel is excellent! You are pretty much right in the center of town but not on the main strip. When you walk out of the hotel the Tourist office is right there which was convenient.
