Nice hostel, that is well setup. The atmosphere is dead though! We were hoping that there would be a pub crawl because Ennis is quite famous for its bars and live music - but no pub crawl. We then thought the restaurant would be a great place to hang out but the drinks and meals were expensive and catered more to locals that wanted a very nice meal rather then the hostel residents that wants a good meal at a good price and some drinks specials to kick start the night.

Nice spacious hostel with a great location - beautiful right on the water. Excellent security, and great showers. The only downside for me was that the atmosphere was a bit of a weird mix between backpacker/family/and people who seemed to almost live there. Additionally, the breakfast ends at 9:30am, which is not necessarily a problem, just make sure you note it so that you don't miss it. That being said, everyone was friendly and the kitchen space was nice and spacious with many work areas.

Excellent breakfast, well equipped kitchen, nice lounge. Bedrooms were ok, bed was fine, but not a lot of plugs and the bathrooms taps were terrible - sprayed water everywhere and either scalding hot or cold. But decently clean. No lockers or anything in room, but might be some downstairs? Staff was nice and helpful though. Good location in the town too. Place was quiet, but huge - seemed almost like a hotel. Good enough place.

Great hostel rooms were great but no security locker. When the shower is being constantly used the fire alarm goes off which was annoying cause we were blamed from everyone in the hostel. Easy to meet people made tons of ferinds. The bus strike was going on while we were there and the staff was more than helpful in helping us find another way out of this cute little town. Kitchen was great and breakfast was pretty good. Overall would stay again

This is the cutest hostel! Everything was super clean all the time and the staff were friendly! Nice kitchen, good breakfast, nice common room. It was really nice that you could use your phone to call home. Nice view from the room.

Good hostel, if a little sparse. Not a great place to meet people because there isn't a lot of atmosphere. Good kitchen, though they have like nothing free for you to use (not even oil) so bring literally everything. Beds are comfortable and bathrooms are clean. But it's a bit of a walk from the hostel to the bus and train.

Rowan tree hostle is extremely clean and provides a "home like feeling". The staff was great & the town of Ennis is cute! The only downside I have to say is that this town is so small that there isn't a ton to do! The pubs and diamond club are fun but not much else around there. But it's a great spot to get away from all the tourist!
