Portarlington Hotels & Information
Portarlington is a town in County Laois (formerly Queen's County), straddling the border with County Offaly (formerly King's County) in the midlands of Ireland. The town was recorded in the census of 2006 as having a population of 7,092.
Portarlington lies on the border of Laois and Offaly, often resulting in light-hearted rivalry between each side of the town, particularly in relation to local and national GAA matches.
The town has expanded rapidly in recent years, most notably with large numbers of commuters from Dublin and surrounding areas, moving down in order to escape from city life and its escalating house prices. Much of the town's expanding population are also non-Irish nationals working, or seeking work, in the area. Townspeople, however, have criticised the fact that this population expansion has not been met with service expansion; as there are few new shops or businesses in the town despite a growing demand for them.
