We have never stayed here, but have come now for several years for an evening meal, and to enjoy the location. The service is friendly, engaging, and the food excellent. We delight in the special nature of the house; its quality to be itself with comfort and not a replica of other hotels, is a real pleasure. We love the drawing room, and books a plenty. (as a retired librarian with Laois history interests the books turn pleasure into joy) Everytime the food has been of suburb quality and taste drawn out of wholesome and local ingredients, without fussy additions.
