This hotel has comfortable rooms, friendly and helpful staff and real Irish portions of food. I was welcomed as soon as I arrived. Once I had succeeded in the challenge of finding the car park (easy once you know - and there are signs), I had no worries at all. The community use the hotel as a restaurant and bar... More

I'll start with the negative to end on the up swing. O'Loughlin's retains it's historic features but not always the desirable ones. The building suffers from the difficult Irish economy but what it lacks in comfort, the staff make up for with kindness and warmth. The bar is a very popular place and if you are not into sleeping, this... More

Let me start by saying as far as decor goes this place is not the Ritz! That said it more than makes up for this in many others ways...not least hospitality and service. My wife and I arrived for a weekend stay to use this place as a base to go to Thurles and KK. We specifically chose this hotel... More

We recently held an event in O' Loughlin's hotel and we were overwhelmed by the generosity of all the staff there. We found O'Loughlin's to be a perfect location to hold such an event as we had a private room at the back which is lovely and modern and had all the extras that we needed, eg. flat screen for...

Stayed at O'Loughlins overnight. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Had food in the bar on the evening of arrival, greasy and poor standard. Room was basic but clean. No hot water though for shower. Breakfast very poor, cold toast. Bar could do with decoration.

We recently had the pleasure of having our son's christening celebrations in O'Loughlin's Hotel Portlaoise. I must say the whole experience from planning, booking and the day itself was made an entirely wonderful experience by the team at O'Loughlin's Hotel.
