4/5 Good

Walls maybe a little thin (could hear the tv in the room next to us), but was ok when we were sleeping. They also have their own parking lot and just give you a token to get out when you need to leave--very nice.

General manager was a bit surly with me upon our arrival (in front of other hotel guests) when he insisted it was my fault that my access card would not open the electronic hallway door. When in fact it actually proved to be a malfunctioning card reader at the access entry point. The other staff however were very accommodating and Marie the hotel ops manager sent a thoughtful written apology for my inconvenience upon check in. However the room that we reserved, versus the room we actually received was not as described or as shown on Expedia. The room and bed were both very small. Additionally, the hotel overall, and all the fixtures and furnishings in our room seemed very tired. Everything was worn and in need of serious updating and required maintenance. We observed water leaking down the walls. Temple Gate was our only lodging disappointment during an otherwise fabulous 2 week visit touring Ireland.

5/5 Excellent

Temple Gate is always clean and well-maintained. All staff are friendly and helpful. This is a beautiful property leading you right to the heart of old town. You can pick up a walking tour just across the courtyard. Trad music plays in Preachers Pub Sunday evening. One change that has happened since my last stay is the fruit bowl disappeared from the breakfast offerings. Bring it back!

4/5 Good

Temple Gate is always clean, quiet, and twice at least has been able to let us check in a bit early. It’s a favorite hotel and provides easy access for walking the historic heart of Ennis.
