National Federation of Voluntary Bodies, Jillian Sexton
I wanted to send an email to yourself and your colleagues – John and Padraig in particular – to say thanks ever so much for making the conference such a success. The overall feedback from delegates on the day has been very positive. We so appreciate your professionalism and expertise. This makes our job so much easier. The hotel looks great also and I am sure ye will be looking forward to having the renovations fully completed.
Look forward to visiting the hotel again soon. Many thanks again.
ROSCREA TRAVEL LTD, Trudi O'Leary
Thank you and your staff for the exceptional service and attention we received for the Salers cattle breeders tour last week. The dinner on the Friday night was fantastic, especially the BEEF ....!
In fact all meals were very good, including breakfast. Rooms were clean and large and we had no complaints just compliments!! The arrangements for the afternoon conference were excellent and at every stage staff could not do enough for us. Thank you once again.
I am writing to thank you for all your help in organising our AGM on Saturday 31st March.
The location was ideal for us as our shareholders come from places as far away as Monaghan in the north and Cahirciveen in the south. Being in the centre of Ireland and being in a position to accommodate hundreds of shareholders was the reason we chose the Heritage in Portlaoise. What we got was a location that provided the necessary parking facilities and access routes from the motorway that made travelling easy.
The conference room was ideal as it facilitated the two demonstrations and the provision of the necessary audio visuals so that everyone was in a position to fully participate in the event.
Personally, I want to thank you for all your help in the weeks leading up to the event and in particular your way in dealing with various requests that we had. I would like to also thank your Duty Manager Nicky, for her help on the day.
Finally, I would like to confirm that I would have no hesitation in recommending your hotel to companies who are looking to host an event for 200 or more people.

My sincere thanks to all the team at the Portlaoise Heritage Hotel for the wonderful courteous and very efficient organisation of our conference. It may have been a half day conference, but we had a big crowd and it was very important to us. We have received very positive feedback from the participants, particularly in relation to the venue and the service - lunch was a great success! I look forward to working with you all again in the future. In the meantime, I wish you the very best of luck and continued success over the coming months and years.
JVA Analytical Ltd, Dublin, Mark Croke
I would like to thank the hotel and staff for their help with our seminar in February. I chose Portlaoise as the location as it is central for people from Cork and Dublin so it suited all of my customers. I chose the Heritage Hotel as they had the perfect room for the seminar as we could accommodate the 20 attendees and the equipment very comfortably. With regard to the staff, they could not have been any more helpful. Anything that was asked of them was carried out very professionally and efficiently. The very competitive day rate included room hire and projector equipment, all necessary stationary, car parking, 2 tea breaks and hot lunch in the restaurant.
I could not fault the hotel and would highly recommend this venue.
The Coeliac Society of Ireland, Emma Clarke Conway, PR & Communications Manager
The Coeliac Society of Ireland held its 2010 Convention and 40th Anniversary Celebrations in the Portlaoise Heritage Hotel in April, with almost 200 delegates catered for and looked after excellently by the hotel's wonderful staff and management. Feedback in relation to the venue has been extremely positive and on the weekend, it was felt that nothing was too much trouble for the hotel to provide. Aside from the comfortable facilities, the delicious food and the central location, the hotel is welcoming and efficient in carrying out all of the requirements of a busy weekend event.
