I stayed here overnight on a business trip and have to say from outside it looks good, its in a good location being not far from the pretty town of Abbeyleix.
The staff are polite and friendly but the interior does look tired from reception through to the bar restaurant. The ballroom is the exception to this and is nice.
The bedrooms were a bit tatty and had nothing to note in a positive way,looked barren!
The breakfast was ok but quite oily, a reasonable portion with overdone egg and very thin black pudding!
I wouldn't stay here again and certainly wouldn't bring my wife, I'm sure there would be better places near at hand.
If you book out after 1200 there's a 10 euro PER HOUR charge.....
