Stayed here with our 2 year old, lovely friendly staff for the most part, one bad apple on checkout but everyone else was polite. Family friendly which was what we wanted and the pool was lovely and quiet when we were there, perfect for a child. Would stay again.

We stayed for one night at the Killeshin hotel and can honestly say it was one of the friendliest places I have ever stayed. The staff were extremely helpful and there was a lovely atmosphere with staff working together as a team to provide excellent customer service. Our room was a great size and spotlessly clean as was the hotel... More

I was staying at this hotel whilst attending at conference in Portlaoise. There are many positive things about the hotel; Conor on reception was very helpful and printed out my boarding pass; room was clean and the bed was comfortable. However, there were a few slights; whilst I fully respect the gym's policy for mandatory swim caps, this needs to... More

Booked this hotel as we were attending a Wedding nearby and had to travel from England. Hotel was convenient for the town although it did require a cab ride. Beds were a little small considering the room was very large. Hotel staff were fantastic especially the Receptionist on our arrival who managed to get us checked in 3 hours early... More

Called into Killeshin hotel after a shopping trip to Portlaoise for a meal.We were happy to go with the bar food as we were hungry. To say we were disappointed is an under statement. The staff were rude and unfriendly The menu was poor and the soup arrived cold, when I mentioned it to the staff member she was not... More

very disappointed with our stay at this hotel as it appeared very impressive online. Our room was over the bar and the noise from this and the traffic noise kept us awake until all hours. The accommodation was fairly ok but the carpets outside the lifts and in the room are crying out for a clean. The food selection is... More

Pros: customer service was excellent, very clean hotel, modern, free parking Cons: location requires a taxi to go into town, price/value was not justified I had to find a place at the last minute over the holiday Bank weekend. This posed a problem throughout Ireland. I finally drove and drove until I found this place via the internet. I planned... More
