The Killeshin Hotel
Ranked #2 of 4 Hotels in Portlaoise
Reviewed 5 August 2013

I booked this hotel for the last two nights of our stay in Ireland. It was easy to find with plenty of free parking. The staff were professional but helpful.

Our room with en-suite was clean and comfortable with excellent facilities included free of charge

We didn't get a chance to use the spa/swimming pool due to other commitments so can't comment on them.

Breakfast was very good and unlimited. Lots of choice and good quality food.

Would definitely stay here again when visiting relatives in the area.

I recently ran a trainning programme at Killeshin for three weeks. The facilities were first class and the service from the staff was second to none. The business forum area is really top class. It allows you to have a comfortable break out area for coffee. Broadband signal was really strong and had no problem handleing 8 - 9 people logged on in the same room.

Ovearll more than happy with the staff, food, facilities and level of service.

thanks again guys.

stayed here 22nd June for 1 night. Were here before wit our 2 children but this time it was just myself and my wife for a romantic night. Checked in after 2 with the friendly staff and then spent a couple of hours at their leisure centre could do with a bit of updating but didn't spoil our experience. The room itself was clean and modern, no complaints there. We were booked in for dinner in the restaurant which turned out to be one of our most enjoyable meals. The restaurant was a credit to both chef and staff. Breakfast was also very good. We will be returning to this hotel very soon, could be our new little get away

I was over in Portlaoise with my mother and as we have a family wedding coming and the reception is being held in the Killeshin we thought we would have a look.

If the food and staff are anything to go by we are in for a great day out. The waitress Catarina was very friendly and efficient and our meal was delicious. Well worth a visit for lunch if you are in the area.

As we did not stay overnight in the hotel I have not commented on the rooms.

Excellent service, friendly and helpfull staff. Clean rooms, though wi-fi can be a bit slow to connect. Good selection of bar food and breakfast. Good location and easy access. Swimming pool could be a bit cleaner.

Seven of us had a very enjoyable lunch here, even during a Lions Rugy Match! Asta was a very friendly, yet professional hostess and allowed us join tables together away from the 'madding crowd' and we spent an enjoyable two hours. The Ceasar salad was really tasty. Soup was delicious. We would recommend this place for a meal anyday. Prices were typical of Ireland- one has to get used to the slightly over-priced food! Thank you for a lovely family gathering. We were not rushed out the door, which was well worth that little extra payment! See you again!
