We were very impressed with the hostel setting, facilities and especially our room & outlook .. Nice having plenty of space ,table & chairs. The welcome goody was a nice gesture. Would leave several B&B's for dead.Keep up the good work ! Hostel is central for walking to explore Ennis

Stayed overnight in a 10 bed mixed dorm and got a good night's sleep. It was great that breakfast started at 7 o'clock and that there was a possibility to use computer for free and print for 20 cents per page.

Rowan Tree is easily the nicest hostel I've ever stayed in! The room was spacious, the bathrooms (both en-suite and common) were spotless, the kitchen was HUGE and well kept, and the place was incredibly quiet! I only dealt with a few of the staff members beyond a quick "hello," but I found them to be generally very friendly, helpful, and full of good advice. The hostel is well placed within the city, right on the river, making it easy to get around and difficult to get lost!

Beautiful Hostel in the heart of Ennis. About a 10 minute walk from the bus station. The bathrooms were exeptionally clean (i have never seen anything like it!), staff friendly. The lobby and dining area was nicely decorated and was very inviting. Room was big and light with high ceilings. Beautiful.

Not wowed. A hostel rather lacking character (and full of old drunk men) but there aren't many other options in Ennis (seriously, skip Ennis if you can - not much to see here). But the staff were nice enough and the bathrooms were clean.

If you want to find good hostel in Ennis, I would highly recommend you this one. Very nice and quiet hostel. I spent only one night here, so it is hard to write review, but I would like to mention that I really like the location of Rowan Tree Hostel. It is located not so far from city center (5 minutes), but at the same time it is separated from the noisy pubs by pretty bridge -- so it's a really quiet inside and you definitely will have a good sleep

A bus time table (844?) on a board was old, so I could not catch a bus.

Great hostel, well located, free breakfast. Common room was empty because wifi only worked in the kitchen. If Wifi and social is no concern for you then this is an awesome hostel!
