Based on the reviews we booked this B+B, the management photos are not a true reflection of the condition of the house now. There was a strange musty smell throughout. Our double bed room was shabby and drafty. Electric blanket worked on one side only but there was an oiled filled heater if required. The nice, chatty and informative Hostess... More

We stayed in this gorgeous house last weekend and had a wonderful stay. Lovely atmosphere and the food was lovely. The rooms were perfect with everything that we needed was supplied. Also my husband is a coeliac and Dinah catered to this for us. Would definitely stay here again...

Hey, yes, my title is all about the breakfast, which I will get to later,but that would be selling short the hosting skills of the lovely couple who looked after us, for sadly only one day. First, it was booked prior to daughter breaking a leg, and when we contacted the host regarding stairs she might have to climb, offered... More

Hard to tell something wrong about this accommodation. Very well situated near the centre of Portlaise. Railway station at walking distance. Hosts are wonderful and do everything what they can. Breakfast with fresh products is the best I've ever had. Dont' need lunch after that. Little secret: Dinah, the host, likes (Belgian) chocolates :-)

This is a great little bed and breakfast close within easy walking distance of the centre of Portlaoise. The single room was a good size and had an en suite with a nice large shower. There were loads of choices for breakfast, I had strawberries, cereals, freshly baked homemade bread and scrambled eggs with salmon. All the options seemed to... More

This is a beautiful house to stay in with a particularly fabulous breakfast. The produce being from the garden or home made. We were welcomed very warmly and made very comfortable during our short stay. We would highly recommend to anyone staying in Portlaoise. A real find!

Stayed here for a night in July and from the moment we were greeted at the door it was a fantastic experience. Gerry was a fantastic host and catered for everything we needed.
