From start to finish this was one of the best hotel stays we've ever had, the staff were fantastically attentive & couldn't do enough for us. The hotel is very clean & in a great location. Definitely 5 stars from us.

Staff lovely. Room ok but carpet dirty and no throw on bed. Stain s down side of mattress base, bare base on view. Breakfast on morning one was quite cold morning two was fine. Short bar menu from 9pm which was fine as we ate before that and menu was extensive, but no warning that short menu was from 7 on Saturday i.e fish and chips, burger or one pasta dish. Restaurant was fully booked so we had to eat elsewhere. Not a 4* experience by any stretch of the imagination. Martina, Wexford.

Rooms were clean. Water was not running in ladies toilet in main reception. Breakfast was poorly laid out and every one was grappling for food! Staff were very friendly and helpful

The Killeshin is a very comfortable hotel, with excellent staff. The food is very good, in both the bar and the restaurant. I would definitely stay again and would recommend it to friends, family and colleagues.

The hotel was great. I was shocked there was no safe in the room. I would see that as a basic facility provided by all hotels up and down the country. The food was excellent, bar staff were very attentive but the table/floor staff took too long to clear dirty tables. The pool should be open later on weekends. Otherwise we had a super weekend

My husband, daughter, future son in law and myself had a great weekend in the Killeshin! All the staff were friendly, cheerful and helpful! Special mention for the bar staff, receptionists and the dining room staff. Breakfast on the 2 mornings was excellent and there was no problem when we asked for boiled eggs or scrambled eggs instead of the fried option. We dined at the hotel on the 2nd night and were very pleased with the choices and the quality of the food served. The bar food was also delicious. Our rooms were spotless,very roomy and comfortable. We all enjoyed 2 great nights' sleep. All that was missing were a couple of benches or chairs outside so that we could enjoy the sunny weather during our stay. Hopefully we'll be back again soon to enjoy all the shops in the town. My daughter and her partner walked the 10/15 minutes to the town and returned 4 hours later laden with their purchases. There was no live music in the hotel while we were there but there were plenty of bars offering music in the town. The friendly receptionist suggested we try O'Gormans which is situated a short distance up the road to the left of the hotel and we recommend it also.

The Killeshin Hotel is a lovely venue to have a break in, we were greeted at reception by friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are very spacious, spotless and have all mod cons. I loved the warmth of the room. The restaurant is of 5 star quality, the food was excellent at dinner and breakfast had a great selection of foods. The service was professional, fast and efficient the restaurant manager was excellent. Reception area was a little chilly for sitting in but one of the best hotels i have stayed in with a while.

by Kev on Feb 11 2014 10:53

great location just off the M7 Motorway and easy access to Dublin and midlands. Very friendly staff, Excellent food both in the bar and restaurant. Would highly recommend this hotel either for a family or a couple.

by Ita on Feb 4 2014 16:43

Stayed here with 4 friends for a girly weekend. Had a great time. The food was amazing and we were pleasantly surprised with the choices as we assumed the worst with the price we paid. Will definitely be back.

by Liam Coghlan on Dec 19 2013 11:32

We stay here a few times a year and always find the staff very friendly and helpful. We would not be returning if we were not satisfied with the hotel. The receptionist Yvonne is always very efficient and helpful and pleasant. We will be staying there in 2014.

by reviewer96928392 on Dec 3 2013 19:48

Another faultless stay with The Killeshin. Clean bedrooms and lobby area. Food in restaurant tasty and huge variety. Easily accessible from motorway and within nearby walking distance of town centre

by margaret on Nov 15 2013 12:10

I booked a night in November in the Killeshin hotel, Portlaoise. The room was lovely and comfortable. We could turn on and off the heating. We could open the window for fresh air. The bar staff were very helpful and friendly. The reception staff on arrival were business like but not friendly however the staff on the following morning were really nice and chatty and gave us clear directions to the outlet centre in Kildare where we did most of our Christmas shopping. We were impressed with the quality of the food it was delicious. I will return again. Thank you all for making our night away so enjoyable. Nothing like getting away for a night and chilling out.

I found my stay in The Killeshin Hotel to be everything and more than I expected. From before we arrived, the attention we received was second to none. I wanted to upgrade my mother's room and order a cake as the reason for our stay was to celebrate my mother's 60th. Leona on reception organised everything professionally and with ease for us. She booked our meal time and all we had to do on arrival was to sit back and enjoy. The facilities are very good and the food was fabulous. Special thanks to the chef for the amazing cake!! Again the staff were attentive and friendly and it was this that puts The Killeshin a cut above the rest. All requests were met with a smile and a can-do attitude. I look forward to my next stay and I would like to thank all the staff at the hotel for such a relaxing and enjoyable break.

Room standard excellent and very clean. Staff all very friendly and helpful. Pool facilities very good. We were disappointed to discover that restaurant was closed and we were eating in bar area (Thursday night). What I felt let the hotel down was the standard and choice of the food for evening meal. We sent soup back because it was tepid. Also as one of our group was coeliac we had requested before hand via email, note with booking AND phoned in advance to confirm that GF cereal was required for breakfast. We were assured it would be but it was not. We would have brought our own otherwise. One other small thing was that breakfast plates were cold so food went cold quickly. So food aspects were a disappointment which is a pity because everything else was great.

by Eddie on Oct 30 2013 22:19

Excellent Deal and would stay in the Killeshin hotel again... 5 Star*****

Hotel is really nice, rooms are fabulous and spacious. Staff very friendly. The meal that came with the Dinner B&B deal was really good, way above my expectations. Would highly recommend

by Sinead on Oct 7 2013 15:09

We had a wonderful stay at the Kilashin. The staff are very friendly and the food was excellent, would definitely stay again.

by Clare Man on Oct 1 2013 13:56

Great Hotel, very clean & family friendly would stay again.

by John Hoare on Aug 27 2013 14:12

We really enjoyed our stay. The bar food was good.The breakfast was also delicious. The pool was great and the kids had a ball.The sauna and jacuzzi were also great. The staff were also friendly. Incidently I was informed by the receptionist that someones car did not start,he left lights on. I just happened to be paying at the time. They had no jump leads and were ringing around to find a set. However I had a set and started a stranded Dub.My pleasure. So maybe the hotel should have a set for emergencies.

by marion on Aug 17 2013 19:13

lovely stay at KILLESHIN huge family room, much and service excellent.

by enda on Aug 16 2013 15:41

Nice hotel, bit noisy for us

by JW on Jul 25 2013 10:53

The Killeshin hotel was excellent for our weekend break ! The staff were friendly and provided us with a lovely quiet room for me, my wife and young son. The evening meal which was part of our package was extremely good and served in generous Irish portions. We spent a happy two days visiting the lovely gardens of Emo Court (10 minutes drive way), browsing the shops and pubs of the town centre and using the hotel's swimming pool and other leisure centre facilities. In short, we will be back ! (We also wish to visit The Rock of Dunamase which is also close by.)

by Liam on Jul 18 2013 12:50

Everything up to the usual high standard. Will continue to stay there on our trip to the Midlands.

great hotel brilliant staff, five stars

by FJP on Jun 20 2013 19:45

A freshly decorated modern hotel in good location and with easy access. A very warm welcome is extended on arrival and this high standard of staff professionalism existed throughout all categories of staff we encountered. Bar was spacious and characterful and food served here was of good quality. Rooms and facilities clean and comfortable.

by kauto on May 28 2013 22:24

Stayed in a family room which was fine once children are small, as one child has to sleep in a camp bed, not really a hotel for children but they did there best to accommodate us. The leisure facilities are excellent kids loved the pool, also the food was amazing. I wouldn't have any complaints over all

by john mcmanamly on May 28 2013 11:30

Stayed here on a sat night. The music and DJ were going full blast till 12.30 making it very difficult to sleep. Food was ok only , while the leisure facilities were nice.

by armothuras on Apr 17 2013 09:03

Good quality hotel. Rooms are pleasant. Nice leisure facilities, speciallly sauna. Pool a bit small especially if there are children about. Extended opening hours of leisure centre would be nice - doesn't open until 9am on Sundays and last entry at 6pm.

by Fiona Murphy on Apr 16 2013 16:47

Had a lovely one night stay at the Killeshin Hotel. Rooms are modern, bright and clean and staff are friendly and in particular the restaurant staff were superb. Dinner was part of our package and proved to be of an excellent standard and breakfast the next morning was delicious. All you could ask of a 4 star hotel. Didn't get a chance to check out the leisure facilities but I'll be back so maybe next time! A fantastic price for a great night away.

by Gerry Mullaney on Apr 6 2013 16:37

Room decor in need of attention. Staff very friendly. Not sure if it deserves 4 star standard. Dining room not open bar food average.

by Marie on Apr 2 2013 15:07

Very nice hotel, great deal food tasty menu was limited but that was due to the type of deal I opted for. Rooms spacious and very clean

by on Feb 24 2013 11:20

Absolutely fantastic stay in the Killeshin... our second visit and we were not disappointed. Everything was 5 Star, from the Staff, Bar, Restaurant and House Keeping. It was my friend's birthday and there were 8 of us celebrating in style. When we arrived for our dinner there was a bottle of Prosesco waiting for us, followed by a lovely birthday dessert for the birthday girl. Special thanks to Antonio, Caitriona, Yolanda & Christina for making our stay so very special. We will be back that's for sure. Kind Regards and Thanks, Catherine Ryan and Friends.

by joachim on Feb 5 2013 11:58

hotel not up to my expectations of a 4 star hotel staff very nice very helpful found a pair of used socks in the wardrobe (not mine) seats in the dining area were torn had to go down to recption to get a pen as there were no writing facilities in the room which for any star hotel should be standard

by ella on Jan 29 2013 22:41
