“top quality family service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2012

I attend a weekly business meeting here although it starts at 06:30 am the friendly service, hot coffee and tasty food make it a little easier to bare.
I have also taken clients and family members here for dinner and have continually found this family run hotel to be of top quality and very reasonably priced.

Called in with family for Sunday Lunch. Food was of the highest standard and the service second to none, the pint of Guinness was to die for. Staff made us feel at home and even got the kids colouring books to keep them entertained. Great food, Great value and excellent service. Certainly worth a visit.

I stayed at O’Loughlin’s recently with a buddy of mine and I can’t emphasize enough what a fine establishment it is. The rooms are clean and tastefully decorated, the food is of a high quality, the beer selection is extensive and the staff are some of the most courteous I’ve ever met. The owner, Ivor O’Loughlin, was accommodating in every manner, right down to advising my friend on local golf courses and approving the little Irish I’ve managed to learn. With its central location on Main Street in the heart of Portlaoise (a typically charming Irish town,) O’Loughlin’s is an easy walk to anything anyone would care to see while there. I would highly recommend O’Loughlin’s Hotel to anyone who would find themselves in need of great place to stay when in Portlaoise.

I recently had the pleasure of spending three nights at O'Loughlin's, a delightfully charming as well as lively and robust hotel in town Centre, Portlaoise. The room was spacious, clean, and very comfortable. The dining and pub areas are warm and cozy and the food was delicious! There is plenty of free, off-street parking and a thrilling discotheque, the “Club” for late night fun. As warm and peasant as O’Loughlin’s is, it is the staff that makes it special. Always quick with a smile and an offer to assist, the staff is what puts O’Loughlin’s in a league by itself. Cheers to Ivor – well done, lad!
