2 words come to mind, fantastic hotel. Myself and my hubby were married here on Friday November 7th. To say we were treated like royalty is an understatement. Every single staff member from the Thursday until the Saturday went out of their way to accommodate us; a few to mention are of course Carol Dempsey, Duty Managers Aidan and Doug. We cannot thank you all enough for a truly amazing day, everything from food to service was 5* thank you so much.

Myself and my fiancée visited the Portlaoise Heritage Hotel a year before we planned to get married. We planned to get married in the hotel with a small wedding breakfast after and then an evening reception. It wasn’t a big wedding by any means but our wedding coordinator explained that they only did one wedding per day no matter how small so that they could concentrate purely on that one wedding.
Our wedding coordinator Carol couldn’t have been more helpful and often gave us valuable advice.
So the big day arrived and everything was set. I got ready in the hotel and the duty manager on the day was so kind. The ceremony was lovely and the room was very prettily laid out.
The banqueting room where our wedding reception was to be held looked fantastic with large candles and mirror centre pieces. The food was excellent and the service was exceptional.
The evening reception went off without a hitch and once more the food that evening was brilliant with plenty to go around.Everybody commented on how good the food was.
The Bridal suite is so pretty and spacious and the breakfast the next day was far more than I expected. It even included a bottle of champagne and strawberries.
Overall I cannot fault the Portlaoise Heritage Hotel in any way. From start to finish they were helpful and considerate to all our needs. I would highly recommend booking the Portlaoise Heritage Hotel for your special day.

Well we're done and dusted and can't believe it's all over. What can we say other than WOW! What a day, from the ceremony to the meal and right through to the service we received it was absolutely astounding. We can never thank you, your staff and management on the day enough
