I stayed for one night on Saturday 6th April.

I highly recommend O'Loughlins. Check-in was quick and easy with all staff from the receptionist to the barman and even the security guys on the night club (free admission for residents) being very helpful.

It's in a good location too - pretty much dead center of town, with good parking out the back. I managed to get a parking ticket for pulling up briefly in a handicap spot outside the hotel though! :-( No fault of the hotel, but I thought the garda might have been a bit more understanding at 10:30 on a Sunday morning - especially as there are two of these spaces and no sign of anyone needing them for the few minutes I occupied one.

Next time I am in Portlaoise I will stay here again.

Myself my husband and newborn stopped at this hotel on Monday evening to have something to eat after having a bad experience of trying to get food elsewhere in the town. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. The gentleman who appeared to be the manager/ owner had excellent customer skills. The menu has a great selection. Service was prompt. The food was delicious. I don't leave recommendations that often but I felt I had to about this hotel. Excellent...well worth a visit.

Dear pinky&brain,

Many thanks for your recent kind review of our business. I remember your visit with your lovely new baby. I am delighted to hear that you were happy with the service and quality of food you received here. As a small family run hotel competing against NAMA owned and operated hotels, your review means a lot to us. We are proud of our little hotel and we look forward to seeing you soon.

The very best of luck with the new arrival, I hope you are getting plenty of sleep!!

Kind regards,

Ivor O'Loughlin

I just spent New Year's Eve here with my girlfriend.
The hotel is perfect for a little night/weekend away.
Top staff top bed and most of all top food and drinks.
It's a family owned hotel and the owners could not be more accommodating in any wish you may have.
Exceedingly friendly and professional
Great late check out if you ask nicely as well

Room Tip: Be nice to Ivor he will sort you out!!
