Attic insulation

I have just enclosed my garage. The attic above the garage is not insulated. I have purchased a portable a/c unit and the unit cools the room but in the heat of the dayyou definitely notice the rise in temperature. If I add insulation to the attic above the garage, will there be a noticeable difference in keeping the room cool?

Attic insulation

Yes. It will help quite a bit.

Make sure the venting is right and seal the top plates and garage baseboard.

It will help.
