Private home with 2 double bedrooms for rent, both with en-suite, TV, wifi, tea/coffee in rooms and separate dining/TV room. Private on site parking.
I offer a private, welcoming, warm, clean and modern Irish B&B experience. I am located 1km from the town centre of Portlaoise which has many restaurants and traditional pubs. Centrally located in Ireland, we are very close to the slieve bloom mountains and 1 hour from Dublin Airport and 70 mins from Shannon Airport. There are 3 golf courses within 5kms including the 5 star Heritage Hotel Golf course and Spa.
In the home guests will have access to tea/coffee in rooms, ensuite, TV, WiFi, hair dryers in their rooms while there is also a separate private lounge and dining room with TV for guests.
Interaction with Guests
While we are a traditional welcoming B&B, I offer a non intrusive stay for guests, friendly chats and info are always available however if you are feeling sociable!
I am located a nice 1km stroll from the town centre of Portlaoise just off the main Mountrath/Limerick Road in a private well lit residential area. I also have private on site parking.
Portlaoise is well serviced by train and coach hourly to and from the major cities. There are also many taxi services within the town.
The house is non smoking however there is a rear garden terrace where guests may use if they wish to avail of some fresh air or some not so fresh air :) Apart from that, I would expect guests to treat the house with the same respect they would treat their own home, and the other guests the same way they themselves would like to be treated.
Marie was a superb host! She and her daughter, Sarah, could not have made me feel more welcome and at home.
I stayed with the Conlons for the weekend of the Electric Picnic. It was just wonderful to come home to a nice cosy warm double ensuite room to recharge whilst my friends went to their tents.
As usual I managed to lose something. On this occasion it was my precious phone. Sarah spent an hour driving me around Portlaoise tracking it (with the aid of the Find my iPhone app). She could not have been more helpful and I am eternally grateful!
The house is outside of town but it's only €5 in a taxi.
The house was lovely, the room was great and the hosts were remarkable! Marie is a lady and not a bad cook either.
Verdict: Stay here if you can!
I'm an outgoing person, love meeting new people and catering for their needs, really enjoy cooking and take great pride in all that I do, for my relax time I enjoy playing golf, or a good movie shared with a nice glass of red wine. Or a good book with easy back ground music. I really am an easy going person.
