IRISH BREAKFAST AWARDS 2011 GUESTHOUSE BREAKFAST
Ivyleigh House - Portlaoise, Co Laois
“No strangers to our breakfast awards – they won a regional award in 2002 – breakfast is always a treat at this fine Georgian townhouse, elegantly presented with fine bone china and traditional Newbridge silver cutlery to make it taste even better.
You’ll get subtle variations on the traditional offerings (natural yoghurt is served with geranium jelly, cereal selections include granola and the house muesli), and specialities that get regular guests coming back for more include gorgeous porridge made with pinhead oatmeal (and served with brown sugar and cream…), leaf tea, homemade bread, jams and marmalade – and their unique ‘oh so light’ Cashel Blue cheesecakes, served with crème fraiche … Consistent excellence.”
