I stayed here for one night. It was good for the price. I could see where some people might not like it, as the rooms are a bit outdated. It was chilly out and the room had plenty of heat, and the shower had plenty of warm water. The owners are pleasant and they have parking out back if you... More

I have stayed at the Portree Guesthouse on several occasions, staying in different rooms as I sometimes travel alone (for work) or with my partner. I have never been disappointed. It is accurate to say that the Portree Guesthouse has it all - a wonderful, friendly welcome on arrival; very helpful and courteous staff; rooms are clean and well laid... More

We were here for Spraoi. Wonderful festival! This was a great place to stay. Signs are posted everywhere for reminders about rules and procedures. There is a kitchen downstairs to cook your own meals, but we could never figure out the stove. They need a sign. This is not a four star hotel, but clean and comfortable enough for the... More

We booked this via the Irish Visitor Service in Kilkenny. Awful, in a borderline neighborhood. We couldn't tell if they allowed smoking, or it was remnants of smokers, but it was smelly. There was no soap or shampoo provided. It's terribly old and worn out to the extreme. The pillows were so hard my ear fell asleep. Noisy, you could... More

Getting to the hotel isn't difficult as its only a few minutes walk from the train and bus stations. Unfortunately the signs for the hotel are not easy to find so check the map beforehand. The staff at the hotel were nice and helpful, and wifi access easy to use. But the private rooms are up a few staircases so... More

This guesthouse was over-priced and very poor quality. While suitable for rugby teams and their hanger's on, anyone that washes daily should avoid it. We spent one night here and had two single rooms. The hotel smelled like cigarettes and everything, from sheets to carpet, looked and felt synthetic. The floor in my travelling partner's room had not been cleaned... More

We stayed at the Portree Guest House recently. It was very good value. The beds were comfortable and we were able to make our own drinks in the lounge with tea, coffee and hot chocolate provided for free, which was a nice touch.

Cute, comfortable, and relaxing. This hostel has a lot of charm. The staff were really nice and even upgraded me to a private room free of charge. I didn’t even ask for it, too. It was very clean and comfortable in the private room. The kitchen and dining area is cozy, as well.
