Centralized Location, Clean Rooms
We discovered this hostel after stopping at the delicious Brogan's Pub for lunch. We wanted to be in a centralized area close to the Cliffs of Moher. This hostel is about 45 minutes from there. John of the night staff was a fountain of information on where to go and on his advice we hiked The Burren. It was less than thirty minutes away and incredible. Great tip! Our family room with 5 beds (two bunk beds and a queen) was clean. Beds were hostel hard (but this seems to be standard for hostels) and room became a little stuffy but at least the windows opened. Private room shower poured water onto the floor no matter what we did. Still happy to have a private bathroom! Public rest rooms were clean and sunny. Breakfast was toast, cereal, and yogurt. Loved the long bench seating in the eating area. They had lots of movies to choose from in the comfortable common room and spent a rainy afternoon just relaxing. No smoke smell, very peaceful. Town is nice, but most things close early. Teenage children walked around alone and felt safe.

Great location
The room was spacious and the bathroom clean. The only slight negative was finding it but that may have been from 22 hours of no sleep.

Excellent
The hostel has been renovated from top to bottom and has the feel of a hotel at cheap hostel prices.

Rowan Tree Hostel sets the mark for all other hostels! Situated literally on the River Fergus, this hotel-like hostel is a gem, and an easy drive from nearby Shannon Airport. Located in the town of Ennis where live traditional music can be heard nightly, this moderately sized hostel is clean, safe, and secure with luxurious amenities, a friendly and knowledgeable staff, plus free continental breakfast -- making it an exceptional value for the money. The Location Ennis is a simple drive from Shannon Airport and a great jumping off point for explorations to the North and beyond. Street parking is available and enforced. The town itself is clean and sometimes rowdy, with locals packing into pubs every night to swill a few pints or ten while listening to local musicians. There is a friendly and easygoing atmosphere that reigns and don't be surprised if you catch yourself singing along with words that are hardly comprehensible. Rooms and Bathrooms Dorm rooms are mixed-sex double-bunks that are clean, comfortable, and well-lit. Luggage lockers are not in-room, but available. All rooms use microchip key cards for added security. Dorm rooms with fewer beds provide in-suite bathroom and shower, while the larger rooms are externally shared. Showers are plentiful, spacious with good pressure and hot water, and bathrooms are bright and clean. Rooms are wheelchair accessible via elevator. Common Spaces The self-service kitchen is awesome! Professional stainless-steel ranges with ample space and several stainless sinks provide adequate space for preparation and clean-up. There are also a good number of large refrigerators which are well maintained and organized, as well as proper cookware, dishware, and silverware. Coffee is always at the ready. Now if the kitchen does not blow you away, the big cozy television room with large flat screen HDTV will. With several comfy couches and chairs, the room is pure relaxation as it looks down upon the river and nearby main street. There is also free Wi-Fi and free internet accessible computers capable of printing for a small fee. Summary This is a budget travelers dream come true! Its location in the humble town of Ennis, near the Shannon Airport makes Rowan Tree Hostel a excellent choice for safe, secure, and clean accommodation. However, it's the friendly staff, wonderful self-service kitchen, cozy lounge, and all-around friendly community that make it an absolute winner.
