We stayed here for one night. The hotel was lovely. Our room was small but pretty. The bar is lovely and welcoming. Food was fabulous too. We went swimming. Area around the pool could do with a paint and a bit of colour. Would come back for sure.

Myself and a friend stayed last Saturday night in the Killeshin Hotel. We got a fantastic rate of only€70 for twin room with breakfast. The room was spotless and big, beds very comfortable. The bar was packed on Saturday with people watching the rugby, the afters of a wedding and a confirmation. Even so, the service was quick and the... More

In my opinion the best place for food in Portlaoise. The bar food men caters for all tastes and budgets. I got the Steak Sandwich with the gorgeous Creamy Mash Potato. We also hot Caesar salad which was crisp and very tasty. The service from the waitress Sara was second to none as usual, always great service and welcoming. Will... More

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your review. I am very disappointed that the management and staff on duty appeared rude. They should have provided you with a jug of water direct from the drinking water tap. While it is not advised to drink the water in the bedroom it is perfectly safe for tea and because of this...

We have stayed in this hotel a number of years ago, and we were recently given an overnight stay there as a gift, and once again it was very enjoyable. The hotel is clean, the staff are pleasant, the rooms were lovely and comfortable, and the leisure centre is good. We only ate breakfast because we did have a look... More

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your very positive review.

Dear Guest, I have received a full report from the staff and management on duty during your stay and while I could outline a response point by point it would serve no purpose.. We are obviously incapable of providing the level of service and customer care expected by you. Yours Sincerely John Flannery General Manager More
