“The best four star in Killarney”
Reviewed 26 March 2009

Just enjoyed another top class visit to the Killarney Plaza with my husband and two friends.This was our fifth visit to this hotel, for three nights. I have to say we enjoyed it thoroughly this visit again and we look forward to our next trip in the autumn hopefully.Having stayed here before, we knew what rooms we wanted to book, we booked well in advance, we dealt with a really super girl in reservations who gave us a very fair rate and of course, just gorgeous rooms. The staff here are just really nice and very helpful.The food as always was extremely good, the dinner was very high standard and the breakfasts are good aswell with plenty of choice etc.....I would recommend you get an executive room / suite if possible as there is quite a big difference to standard rooms and it is well worth the extra money if you can afford it.Recommend if you are not travelling with children, to ask for rooms on the left side of the corridor as these are v quiet and there are really good sound proof windows to block out street noise. You won't have any trouble sleeping here as the beds are really comfortable and v little noise , well , it helped that the hotel was not overly busy this time we visited too.!
The pool is v nice, although quite small, but is v well done. The spa is just wonderful here. This is definitely one of the best four star hotels in Killarney and we will return again when we get the chance. Well done to the staff at the Plaza and I hope you enjoy your visit as much we did on all occasions. This hotel is highly recommended to all who want four star treatment in a central location, book a good room and you won't be disappointed.!

This is a nice hotel in a good location, at the end of the main street in Killarney which means it's within wallking distance of all the shops, pubs, etc. We stayed here recently -myself, husband and 2 children, for 2 nights on a bank holiday weekend. We enjoyed our stay but I would say there is nothing particularly special about this hotel. The rooms are average -the decor is a bit dated, the beds fine although could have been bigger and more comfortable. The bathroom was nice enough but again the tiles were a bit outdated. There is nothing I could actually complain about as the hotel room was spacious, although not a good view, clean, decent breakfast - but I suppose on the whole the hotel just doesn't have a wow factor. The reception area decor is kind of odd. It looks expensive but oddly fake in a way - not what you'd expect from an authentic 4 star Irish hotel. If you're looking for a clean room in a hotel on the main street then this is fine - but don't come here looking for a romantic room in a luxiry hotel as this just won't cut it. Oh - and what they also don't tell you is that they have very limited undergrond parking that takes about 30 cars at most. It wasn't a problem as we stayed in low season but in high season I'd be pretty upset if I was staying here and had to pay a fortune for car parking in the public car park next door.

Had a girly weekend away to KIllarney! Oh my god, the Molten Brown Spa is just fab!! The whole hotel did not let us down in any way! Staff were brilliant, rooms were lovely, food was yummy! (espically the chocolate cake). We stayed Friday night, had lovely dinner and a few drinks, saturday all headed off to the spa for a full body massage and a facial, oh it was like heaven in their!! Spa staff are very good at what they do, and all so professional! It was a well deserved break for all of us and we enjoyed every second of it!
Will return to this hotel!

Stayed here on a recent Sunday night whilst in Killarney on business. The lobby and other public areas are of a decent standard as was breakfast. Location right in the centre of town is its biggest plus point. "Bog standard" twin room in which I stayed was unremarkable and characterless. Questionable value for money in what is an extremely quiet low season.

Stayed here for one night for Valentines with my partner, to make a long story short we were moved room three times, taking into account we didnt get there till after 5:30 that evening because I was working and then we couldnt even shower before we went out. We arrived back to the hotel after a night out and had to sit in reception for forty five minutes to find out what room we were being moved to again and where our belongings were. Eventually we got to bed after 3:00am. No apologies were made by the manager that was on duty at the time. Another manager apologised the next day to us and had assured us that if he had been on duty this would not have happened. So it was disappointing and I think they were just trying to cash in on the Valentines night, the hotel was packed and it looked to me like most of the staff were running around like headless chickens. If it wasnt for Tony who did eventaully find us a room and even offered us a complimentary drink I think we would have been sleeping in our car. I had stayed here before, the location is great but I feel the hotel has become slightly dated and tired. Even the bar which used to be a great spot has seen better days. Killarney has such super hotels and guesthouses you would definitely get way better value, service and comfort for your money.

My girlfriend and I both stayed here for valentines. Firstly I always book after reading tripadvisors reviews and have never been let down weather its been a resturant or hotel. We booked here due to reviews it got here. The deal we got offered 350 euro for 2 people bed and breakfast dinner one evening. The room we got was obviously the cheap kind with a view of the car park. We ate the first night and the food was average at best. We had wine with the meal which on recieving the bill appeared to be included but wasnt. The following morning breakfast was average. All in all we were dissapointed because when vat was added on to our bill we realised we might have stayed at the nearest 5star. Just fully look at how much you are paying and hidden costs. The location was brilliant fair enough but killarney is a small town anyway......for a good review read about our meal in Chapter 40....stay away from the plaza, you can do much better.

  • Liked — the pool.....
  • Disliked — the price...the hidden costs....the snotty receptionist
