And we don't even golf!
Extraordinary rooms, service, breakfast, workout facility, grounds, etc. It is in the middle of nowhere, which is something of an issue since I was not comfortable with the narrow Irish roads (not their fault)...so count on driving a bit to get to other venues for dinner, shopping, etc.
The only negative is their recommendations. They are unreliable. They sent us to a closed pub twice!
Notwithstanding that small negative, I would go back in a heartbeat.

I see you got to use many of our facilities and explore some of the stunning local country-side. Apologies for the confusion with the recommendations.

We hope the rest of your Irish tour was as successful and we hope you returned home with many happy memories from your holiday.

We arrived after a red eye flight and no sleep. Driving on the other (wrong) side of the road is stressful under any circumstances, but while being walking zombies is a whole other challenge. Fortunately, we had already booked massages and the hotel let us check in early (at 10am!) so we could nap after our awesome spa experience. We couldn't have felt more spoiled. The bed was heavenly!!

We recently stayed in The Heritage near Port Laoise and it really is a beautiful venue for a weekend although I would question it's 5 star status. Firstly I have to compliment the staff who were excellent and could not do enough for us during our stay. We ate in the Golf Club the first night and the food was above average as normal golf clubs go so i would tick the box there.The second night we ate in the main restaurant and we were disappointed with the quality of the food. The main courses were not great and deserts lacked any imagination. Breakfast was also disappointing with a 5 star Hotel i do not expect to eat buffet breakfast which is what this is. Generally we enjoyed our stay but the food in the main restaurant could be vastly improved.

Room Tip: If your interested in golf a view of the golf course is nice

Stayed there for 2 night for my niece wedding, hotel is great, staff fantastic, overall super for the 2 days, only issue was the BBQ the 2nd night in golf club, this is run by different management team and very different from hotel staff, golf staff not very nice or efficient, room was terrible and bar staff and general state of drink was sub standard, when we complained the manager just fobbed us off, we needed to go to hotel manager dougie who sorted all issues and only for him the day would have been ruined. Overall would I stay again, yes - but would I eat in the golf club again, No...

Dear Peter T,

Thank you for taking the time to review the resort following your recent stay with us for your niece’s wedding reception.

I am pleased to hear that overall you enjoyed your stay but disappointed to hear some issues arose in the clubhouse on the 2nd evening for the BBQ.

May I sincerely apologise on behalf of the team for the inconvenience caused but glad to hear once raised with the duty manager Dougie he rectified the situation to the best of his ability and can assure you we are currently addressing the situation.

I do hope you return to the resort some time in the near future and we look forward to welcoming you back.

Kind regards,
Ciaran O’Neill
Guest Relations Manager.

The location for a family wedding, The Heritage Hotel was a fantastic venue.

The staff and waiters were efficient and did everything to accommodate.

The food was superb. The tastiest beef I have had in Ireland.

Great ball room, band and end to a lovely day.

Recently returned from a very enjoyable stay on the resort. Staff were friendly and efficient. Apartment was great and exceeded expectations. On site Italian Restaurant is reasonably priced and served tasty Italian fare. Over the weekend there was a pianist playing in the lobby and the bar also had a band if you fancied a livelier atmostphere. Will definitely return soon.
