My husband and I have been here twice and will be back again. The food is nothing fancy, but is very tasty and exceptional value. The house red wine is super. The food takes a long time to come out and the dishes come one by one not at the same time.

Lethean

Reviewed By ditbujino

Went in Sunday at 17.45. Was told they were only doing pizza. Ordered a pizza. Waitress came back a few minutes later to say what I ordered was the only pizza they didnt have. It's basic enough to make sure staff know what's on and what's not. When it arrived, the base was thin but chewy. Calling itself a "gastro-pub" is a bit ambitious for this place.

My husband and I stayed here for a night as we were attending an event in Portlaoise. The location is ideal, in the town centre and close to everything. The room was clean, the bed comfortable and good powerful shower. The staff were all friendly and helpful. The breakfast was really good too, and the fact that it was served until 11.30 was a real bonus after a late night! It was a bit noisy but it didn't bother me and my husband wore ear plugs so it wasn't an issue and they do warn it is a possibility on their website. We would definitely stay there again and o would recommend it.

Lilly's Bar

Reviewed By Ajoyrowan

I’ve been to Lilly’s on a few occasions for food and also on a night out. I always find the staff so polite, helpful and attentive. It has a lovely quirky chic feel which suits any event from enjoying food from the delicious menu to quite pints to dancing the night away. I’ve also met the manager Kevin on my last visit, he was so welcoming and great at his job.I can’t wait for my next visit

Tynan's

Reviewed By vegisbest

We stopped for afternoon tea here recently. It has always been a favourite stop over for me enroute to Athlone. Great choice of cakes and desserts too. But I couldn't believe the price increase! Practically all cake slices and desserts €5.15. Only one dessert lemon drizzle cake was less than that at €4.30. I had this. It was nice. My daughter opted for a rice crispie square which we assumed was cheaper only to find when we paid, that it was €5.15 too Definitely OTT. Considering the location and it being day time I think the prices are too high. Our server said this is because of the increase in VAT and the quality of the ingredients. It's a pity about the prices but a nice place to eat and food is good.

Went into Treacy’s for breakfast last Sunday it was busy as usual but we didn’t have to wait too long to be seated when we were seated it took them 30 seconds to get the menus quick service and a very pleasant waitress our kids ordered 2 rashers and 2 sausages and a ham sandwich and my wife ordered a scone and I ordered a full Irish it was at least a 45 minute wait for the breakfast.The scone was a bit dry and the ham sandwich came out toasted to the waitress was very apologetic about it though.When we went up to pay it was a bit pricey €2 for a small glass of apple juice not very good value although I had a nice experience and prefer it to CaToCa Emo.
