It is an old house with very high ceilings so the room was a bit chilly, but the electric heater helped. There was also an electric blanket on the bed...

A lovely B&B with a great welcome and a very personal touch. But the main high point is the breakfast, all homemade, including breads, granola, fresh fruit juice. The Cashel blue cheese cakes with mushrooms are amazing!

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights. The owners are very friendly, and a wealth of knowledge for travelers. This was our first trip to Ireland, and they really helped us out. Their B&B is ultra clean, and on a very nice, quiet side street. Easy walking distance to restaurants. Their rooms are well appointed, and very comfortable....

Rooms were old worldly and very comfortable. Breakfast was second to none, all free range and made fresh including the wheaten and bread. When we left I...

We stopped for one night in Portlaoise last May during a golfing trip across Ireland. Location is nice, just a couple of minutes walk from town centre. House and rooms are old fashioned, but lovely and well maintained. Breakfast was very good too. Very convenient parking at rear.
