Second visit in past three years.Made very welcome and when I told them we had stayed before I was given a 10% discount. Portloise is a convenient stop when travelling to or from remote destinations in Ireland as it is an easy drive from Dublin.The hotel is nicely old fashioned and very close to bars and restaurants in the town...
