Nice place in the center of Ennis. Very quiet at night. Room was a good size and clean. Able to walk to shops and pubs, the train station was a bit too far of a walk. Suggest that you check different hotel booking sites to get the best rate.

The Temple Gate Hotel was fantastic! Beautiful rooms and such friendly servers. Great service. The food was really good although not priced for a larger group or family. The location was right in the center of town!! If you walked out the back door you were right in the center of town!! Amazing location!
