The Killeshin Hotel stands on the main road when you either enter or exit the town and is easy to find. First impressions are that it is a Government building but things thankfully improve when inside the property. It is clean and modern and very different from the old Killeshin Hotel.
Our visit consisted of sampling the bar food which I must say was excellent. It is not the first time we have eaten there and the standard seems to have been maintained. At this stage we have sampled most of the menu and I cannot fault anything regarding the food.
Atmosphere wise it is the standard rural Hotel welcome. We know you are not local so dont expect any banter. I think the property is under Receivership so I suppose job security dwells heavily on the mind. The East European Waitresses are charming as always and as usual smartly turned out. The presentation of the food was excellent and it was hot and tasty. There are some Irish Staff and the usual miserable attitude unfortunately prevails. The very same people populate the many Restaurants in Manhattan wishing everyone a nice day but when at home it really kills them to wait on anybody and as for a smile, well you can forget that.
Portlaoise would be renowned as a foodies wasteland so when in town give this Hotel your business. Their Chef seems to care and that deserves some support.
