Fodor's Review

Before its conversion, this was a Gothic-style convent, and remnants of its previous existence (including the chapel, which is now a banquet hall) give character to this bright, modern hotel in the town center. Coordinated drapes and bedspreads in warm, earthy colors decorate the compact, well-equipped rooms, which have unusual views of pretty corners of Ennis's historic center. Preachers Pub is popular with locals, while the guest lounge is a country-house-style library.

The entrance is via a cobblestone courtyard adorned with Victorian street lamps.
