Stayed there on way to Dublin, read reviews for area and tried here. Good decision . Rooms are first class with beautiful decor thru out. Booked two rooms as with son and friend. We asked where to eat as after 8pm. Guided to Seasons Restaurant in centre of town. Best food on our tour of Ireland. Beds were very comfortable.... More

We stopped for one night in Portlaoise last May during a golfing trip across Ireland. Location is nice, just a couple of minutes walk from town centre. House and rooms are old fashioned, but lovely and well maintained. Breakfast was very good too. Very convenient parking at rear.

Lovely place, gorgeous rooms and house in general. It was an experience to stay here in beautiful surroundings and amazingly friendly staff. Would recommend the Ivyleigh House to everyone! Thanks for the great stay in Port Laoise.

Stayed in this B&B for one night while attending a family get-together in town. The house itself is lovely and well maintained, although not to my personal taste - very old fashioned, lots of fussy carpets and furnishings. The room we were shown to was very large with an enormous comfortable bed. However, there were some issues - the proprietor... More

We stayed in this guest house for the weekend of the Electric Picnic last year. All aspects of our stay were excellent. The rooms are large and very well maintained, and the house itself is beautiful. There is ample parking and the location could not be mre convenient for getting trains or buses (literally a few metres from the train... More

Charming Georgian House on outskirts of town centre within 5 mins walk of all major pubs restaurants and 2 mins from cinema. Ideal location and safe parking at rear. The house is wonderful. No lift but huge bed rooms and large bathrooms with good showers. Our room had a massive bed with lovely antique furniture. All furnishings and bed linen... More

perhaps a relic of the celtic tiger this is definitely a cut above the standard B&B but at the end of the day for the price, its still just a B&B and perhaps should lower their fees. We stayed here for a weekend as a last minute thing and so didnt shop around. The place has a real charm about... More

Just one night at this b and b in central Portlaoise whilst attending a conference nearby. Nice furnishings, bed linen and excellent breakfast room/breakfast and free car parking at rear. If there were any 'could do better' areas I would suggest offering guests cuppa on arrival and maybe even a smile! Otherwise no complaints.

I had been booked into a local hotel but due to a blunder there was no room when I arrived. My company said they had booked me into Ivyleigh back in town.
