The staff were lovely & friendly. The room was quite small but was clean. The window was open & I had to stand on the bed & balance to close it. The bedside lamp couldn't be plugged in as there was no electrical sockets within reach. The hotel is quite dated. It's a long time sinceI had to open a... More

Had to get a room at last minute in Portlaoise and got a good value single booking in o'loughlins. Staff were friendly and room was small but fine BUT didn't get any sleep due to noise from live band in pub outside room 21 till well after 2am!! No sound insulation at all. Not good and couldnt stay there again... More

Dropped into this Hotel on a Saturday night to try out their new Tappas bar. First impressions were favourable with a nicely decorated dining area. Low lighting and soft music added to the ambience. Unfortunately we were left standing at the entrance waiting for one of the several serving staff to speak to us. Eventually i had to approach a... More

I was attending a wedding at this hotel. I opted to stay over with my boyfriend. The room we were given (room 25) was freezing. We asked twice about getting the heating turned on and both times they said they would do something about it but no heat all night! There was also no warm water for a shower. There... More

Great hotel and made so much better by the truly brilliant staff . Nothing is too much trouble & they don't wait to be asked but instead anticipate your every need . Love the coffee and the warmth is generated by far more than the peat burning stove.

Stayed 4 nights over the new year. Everything was perfect, staff very friendly,and helpful, especially the house keeping. Food was excellent, great breakfasts, with plenty of extra pots of tea. Had dinner there twice and it was lovely.Small problem with the bathroom but was sorted immediately. Over all a great hotel, spotlessly clean,with the best staff.
