Another Regional Festival Success!
The Portaloise Heritage Hotel and Co Laois welcomed 56 Roses from around the world to the Regional Festival over the May bank holiday weekend.
The Roses were treated to an amazing four days of festival, including a visit to Ballyfin House voted the best hotel in the world two years running, yoga in Abbeyleix Bog, a vintage car parade, lunch in Castle Durrow with a singing chef, a game of camogie against the Laois county team, plus THREE nights of Rose Selection with Daithi O Se!
Congratulations to all the Roses who took part to make this a truly magnificent final year of Regional Festival in Portlaoise. Our thanks go to so many people who have been so brilliant over the years, but we give a special mention to Laois County Council, Laois Tourism, Laois Civil Defence, the Portlaoise Heritage Hotel and The Maldron Portlaoise.
