Had a great stay here. The room was lovely and food and service in bar equally as good. Swimming pool and facilities were a lovely bonus. Will definitely stay here again next time I going to portlaoise.

My partner and I booked a Saturday night in the Killeshin, so we could do some Christmas shopping in Dublin/Kildare. As regards it's location, it could not be easier to find! The receptionist on arrival was a pleasure to deal with. Our bedroom was simply superb. Large, open room, with a comfortable bed, television, tea/coffee facilities and ample storage space....

Stayed here for less than 24 hours with wife and child. Very pleasant staff from check in to restaurant to breakfast staff. Would love to have stayed longer.

On check in, staff were very good, friendly and informative. Three of us staying in a room; one double bed and one single bed, which was more like a child's bed. It was comfortable, but if you are in any way large ... forget about it. Found it strange that there couldn't have been two doubles, as the room was...

We visited the Cedar bar in the hotel for a bite to eat. The lady who served us was very pleasant and was very understanding of my elderly mother who ordered off the menu with some adjustments.
