The 4 star Midlands Park Hotel is located in the heart of the Midlands in the centre of Portlaoise town. Our enviable location in the Midlands just off the M7 and just over 1 hour from Dublin Airport is easily accessed by road from across the country and only a short walk from Portlaoise Train Station so we are the perfect location whether travelling for business or leisure from the US.

With everything on our doorstep, it is the perfect choice to enjoy the abundance of tourist attractions and soak up the wonderful atmosphere of Portlaoise town, set in the Heart of Ireland.
Don’t just take our word for it, see what a previous US guest had to say about their stay:
‘We travelled to Ireland for our grandsons christening, reception staff were very helpful, giving us a room on a lower floor. The decor is modern as are the rooms, the beds were comfortable. The hotel is central to the town with a convenient car park which is free if you have breakfast. We had a lovely time and hope that any of you who stay here have no complaints. There is a swimming pool that looked inviting but closed 6.30 so we left it too late to have a swim’ – Tripadvisor – April 2019
Access to The Midlands from Dublin Airport
Located just over an hour from Dublin Airport, Aer Lingus offers direct Dublin flights from many US cities, including Boston, Miami, New York, Atlanta, Dallas, Denver and many more destinations. A huge advantage of travelling back to the US from Ireland is that you will pass through U.S. Preclearance facility. Dublin Airport is one of only a handful of airports outside North America that offers this facility. The benefit is that having cleared USCBP, passengers arriving in the US are treated as domestic arrivals, allowing them to avoid immigration queues, pick up their bags and go. Car hire companies are also located at all airports.
Useful Tips when Travelling to Ireland
- Car Hire companies are located in all the airports and we recommend that you book an automatic car in advance of your arrival.
- In Ireland, we drive on the left-hand side
- Operating speed limits are in kilometres
- Ireland has 3 pin plugs like the UK
- Please check roaming charges with your mobile phone provider before travelling to Ireland as this can add up to be quite costly.
