I stayed at the Killeshin one night only and I really enjoyed my staying. The Hotel is very well connected. Portlaoise is far from Dublin Airport however it is possible to get to this hotel by bus from the airport and from Busaras, Dublin City Centre, quite easily!

The bus stop is 100 mt from the Hotel.

The rooms are quite large, fully equipped, with big desks, nice and tidy bathrooms. It's a nice Hotel.

I really suggeste it

My husband our son and myself stayed here for 3 nights 2nd ,march we arrived in the afternoon the girl at check in was very quick girl was polite but again there was no welcome to the killeshin or enjoy your stay with us she did point out restaurant ,bar ,leisure area but never asked us if we would like to book dinner so we asked her to book us a table .We got to our room it was nice ,clean hovering could be a little better .Bathroom was clean no shower mat or toilet brush but however nice and clean.We went to the restaurant nice music playing nice decor and clean .We ordered our starter i had cesear salad which was basic lots of greens very little dressing which made it very tasteless i asked for some dressing i got a little bowl of mayonaise ? I did say it to the girl ?her response was i will let the chef know it seemed there was very little organisation in the restaurant every waiter and waitress seemed to be serving us tables didnt seem to be shared out between them .Again no drinks were offered wine beer etc .We asked for them .Our main course was steak it was ok a bit tough veg was great and potatoe was great .We had desert lemon roulade was flat with lots of berry dressing on top did not taste fresh coffee was not ground coffee as i would expect .So i asked the waitress to change which she did.We went to the bar to have a drink golf was on tv we asked the bar tender to change the channelif possible to be told golf is remaining on ? maybe he likes the sport?We had our drink and left .We went for b/fast on sat morning it was only ok to be honest bacon very dry and over cooked mushrooms i think were from a tin toast was soft coffee was awfull! We didnt have lunch in the hotel .We had bar food in the evening it was good soup was just warm not hot bread rolls were soft .We asked if there was any entertainment in the hotel for the wk end to be told no! disapointed we were however we stayed in the bar to watch golf again my husband asked the bar tender if he would put on the boxing that nite his answer was if no one wants to watch the golf!!!!!!!!! i will . We went to our room and watched tv for the nite .B/fast was the same again .On sunday we had lunch in the bar overall it was good but the same soup just warm lemon roulade was flat again with berrys on top in a very sweet sauce i have never seen lemon roulade with mixed berrys ? We went walking and shopping we returned to the bar to have a sandwich to be told we dont serve any in the bar after 4 o clock stange we said but but! we could get them room service with a tray charge of i think 4 euro each the bar man then said i will try to pull a few strings and get them for ye ok we got them bread wasnt fresh we gave up at this stage! This is why hotels are not doing very well in ireland staff arent selling example book a table? wine at dinner! no entertainment in bar at wk ends .There was no atmosphere in this hotel for the 3 days and 3 nights not one manager did we see in the bar or restaurant .We were disapointed .Monday morning my husband went to collect the car keys at reception at 11 o clock as we had left them there the girl said to him are you going to pay your bill before you leave ? I thought it was rude to be honest he replied when we check out we will pay our bill of couse ! When we did check out the same girl that checked us in never asked did you enjoy your stay or please visit again or was all ok for you .? Dont think we would stay here again this was our experince in this hotel .I found this hotel not 4 star 3 max.Guests should be treated a bit better than that. What i would expect from a 4 star hotel didnt happen in this one.

My husband and I booked this hotel on todayfm.ie for 35 euro a night each with breakfast! Brought our parents with us too. When we brought them to their rooms first we thought they had been upgraded! Rooms are really fab. All rooms are the same throughout the entire hotel. Great big comfy bed and tea/coffee and lovely bathrooms. We ate in the hotel on the Friday night. Yum and delicious baileys coffees and desserts after :) Staff were local I would say and really friendly. Breakfast was tasty and as much as you wanted was there. Staff also lovely here. Two blonde ladies. Went to Seasons restaurant in the town on the Saturday night (recommended!). Stay here - great value and lovely pool etc

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the main road - 2nd floor

Stayed in this hotel last December. Booked for two nights dinner, bed and breakfast. The room was very clean but in need of work done as they are a little tired. Food was fantastic and the atmosphere in the bar was good both nights we stayed, its a bit out of the town but only 5 minutes away in a taxi. Staff were really friendly except for the receptionist a tall blond haired girl who i found to be quiet rude. Never got to the leisure Centre but i heard good things about it from the other guests. Will be back!! ( soon hopefully )
