The Killeshin is a great hotel with pleasant staff and reasonably modern rooms. The room I stayed in is laid out well and spacious, and although there was a lack of a fridge in the room, there were no issues getting an ice bucket. The set dinner is delicious, particularly the seabass and vanilla/chocolate pyramid. Great bar area also.

We stayed here on the 21st December. My Mother explained that my Son was feeling poorly so the receptionist placed us in a 'quiet room'. We were told there was a wedding going on that day but it was going to be a small, quiet affair. We were awake most of the night because some of the wedding party decided... More

We booked our daughters christening here, mainly because we frequent this hotel and also it was easy for family coming from Dublin to access. Our first interaction was with Pauline in sales, very helpful and obliging and gave us a good deal. Towards the end of the planning we dealt with Theresa, so helpful, never a no, helped us with...

My wife and I stayed with our 3 children for 1 night. We thoroughly enjoy our stop off, the food and accommodation were absolutely perfect, but I have to compliment the wonderful staff...having arrived slightly later than intended, we had hoped to go for a swim, but we realised that kids were supposed to leave before 7pm. The excellent service... More

The Killeshin restaurant is definitely a hidden gem! Not somewhere you'd think to dine in Portlaoise but on the two occasions I have been- the food has been exquisite! Staff are friendly and very attentive. Portions are huge and they give so many extra sides. You really are full when finished. The bar is also lovely for a drink!

We booked a night in this hotel with a voucher just before Christmas. We purposely booked it for the first weekend after coming back to work to have something to look forward to. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip! On the way we stopped off in Kildare Village which is only about 20 mins drive from the hotel. The hotel itself... More
