“Fabulous Stay”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

If you like beautiful old houses and absolutely fabulous food, this is the place for you. We stayed at Preston House after purchasing a deal on Groupon. We didn't expect much having availed of a discount deal, but....WOW. The house is stunning, beautifully maintained, brimming with period features. Dinner was beautiful. Danny is a very attentive host and takes real (and justifiable) pride in the quality of food in the restaurant. I highly recommend staying here. There was also a surprising amount of attractions in Abbeyleix for a relatively small town. There's a great pub a few doors up as well if you feel like a few drinks after dinner.

“Unexpected Gem”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Really enjoyed wonderful hospitality in a unique setting in Abbeleix. All staff were incredibly welcoming and helpful. Owners are very friendly and hospitality exudes all aspects of Preston House. Food is excellent; every attention to detail is thought through. Definitely recommend.

“Old world charm and atmosphere”
Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

Just back from a great night in Preston House Abbeyleix.
From the moment we arrived the welcome from Breda, Danny & team was excellent.
The coffee alone is worth the drive down from Dublin.
Lunch in the tearooms served on the old roof slates was fantastic.
My fillet steak for dinner was the best steak I've ever eaten, and I've eaten a lot of steaks!
The presentation of everything was flawless.
Even the fruit salad for breakfast was presented as opposed to served in the bowl.

Room was lovely old style but in perfect condition.

Definitely going to go back.
