good situation away from busy town a bit dated, but the beds were comfortable. having to order breakfast before you have had your dinner is a problem and having to give an exact time is a bit of a downer too, especially if you are used to hotels where you have a between 8-10 situation which is much better for...

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights. The owners are very friendly, and a wealth of knowledge for travelers. This was our first trip to Ireland, and they really helped us out. Their B&B is ultra clean, and on a very nice, quiet side street. Easy walking distance to restaurants. Their rooms are well appointed, and very comfortable.... More

Stayed in this B&B for one night in February. Met by both owners on arrival and checked in. They were more than helpful in suggesting a number of places to eat that night. Rooms were old worldly and very comfortable. Breakfast was second to none, all free range and made fresh including the wheaten and bread. When we left I... 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

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
