Stayed in a suite, room very nice, spacious, clean, had previously stayed in executive room in Plaza a few years ago, which is one down from the suite but better than standard rooms, this was very nice too, but suite is a lot nicer again.
Very clean, not dusty like hotels all across the stars often are, a lot better suite than I have stayed in a 5 star in Killarney to be fair, only thing there wasn't was a fridge if I really had to pick at something with the room.
Comfy, well kept, sofas and chairs very soft , nice fireplace, 2 tvs, and so on, bathroom was well stocked up with toiletries, in unnamed 5 star in Killarney suite got 1 shower gel and 1 shampoo (the minis) between us, but that's the worst we ever saw!!! There was loads and loads of it, and we were only staying a night. Toiletries were quite nice too.
Bathroom had lovely big shower with the jets on the walls as well as the shower head and a jacuzzi bath and was big, nicely decorated, 2 sinks and so on and cleaned properly all over.
The suite is worthy of a 5 star hotel and is a lot better than some of the 5 star's suites out there.
Staff were generally very good & polite throughout the stay, had no problems.
One lady, that seemed to be just coming in to work from the car park as we were just going down the steps to it, asked if we wanted a hand with the bags - that is having good staff, she was barely in the door herself and we were most of the way there. (we had already been asked if we wanted help with the bags at the desk checking out as well).
Had evening meal in the bar bistro part and my meal was good all round, but my husbands was hit and miss, chips were excellent - proper fresh cut ones - really rare to get them anywhere so well cooked, and the steak (well done) was to be fair very tough and he couldn't even finish it, and that's not like him! :-) it was a thick cut and I know it's hard when someone asks for it well done but some places do manage to keep it soft and I can manage it at home so really it should have been soft.
I will say the previous time we stayed we ate in the actual restaurant (which was closed this time) and it was excellent all round, both our meals, all 3 courses, so I would just eat there if I stayed there again and I would recommend it if it is the same chef etc from a few years ago.
Breakfast was mostly good enough, I remember it being a bit better the last time we stayed but we did arrive down just before it finished so a lot of stuff had been sitting there but most was good enough for a hotel buffet breakfast, good enough selection, especially for mid week in November and it was quiet. The sausages etc were fine it was just things like the waffles etc gone rock hard from sitting on the buffet heater but as I say we were in right at the last end of it and it did taste as if it would have been fine when it was soft. As far as breakfast goes in hotels it is one of the better places.
The hotel is well kept all over, properly decorated with a lot of nice little touches all over it, everywhere you go if you look around, which you actually don't see a lot in hotels, there is a lot of pleasant surroundings to sit around and look at in there it is a very comfortable, and very clean place to stay, with loads of places all over you can sit around in, it would be good if you were staying there for a longer break. Is very nice from outside, and generally hasn't been left get scruffy and unmaintained like other places have gone with the bad economy.
Location is right in town with car park, ideal spot in Killarney, didn't find it noisy or any sounds from the road below was on 4th floor.
All round I recommend.
