Had the unfortunate task of organising a funeral recently and having to deal with Damien in O Loughlins took so much pressure off that I didn't know would even exist. They catered for 180 people, good food portions and reasonable prices. Everyone on the day took such care of our family and it will not be forgotten

We hadn't been to Portlaoise for some time and thought we'd pay a visit. However for lunch this day we were all very disappointed, it was the worst food we've had in a very long time. Highly disappointed!!!

We stopped off here enroute to Dublin airport for lunch and it was excellent! We both opted for the beef with mashed potato and vegetables and portions were huge. Beautifully cooked and good value.

Been in twicefor breakfast lately, service was ok - the cooked breakfast sad and unappetising. Popped in for lunch and had the chicken wings, I was pre warned they were hot - hot I could cope with, they were just sour and totally inedible. Way too many other options in town to make me want to rush back.

Arrived expecting something amazing left with a want for something better. I had the Full breakfast Poached eggs very hard (after asking for soft ones) water all over the plate, Bacon was poor quality, Hash Brown was full of grease and the sausages, well let's just say they looked more like cocktail sausages. not over expensive but expected more.

Thank Goodfoodloverls
