I recently dropped by the Savoy while I was back in Limerick recently, and I felt I had to write a review to put into context the out-of-context comments by the previous poster.
As a Limerick native, I almost know each and every coffee shop inside out - from where the best is to be had, to where the worst can be got. On my recent and first visit to the Savoy, I paid a visit to the lounge upstairs on a quiet Tuesday. I ordered the freshly baked scones with clotted cream and a selection of jams along with a regular americano. I can safely say that I have never eaten scones which were so fresh, and for a very reasonable price, I was very satisfied with my value for money (€5 in total). The presentation in a silver platter with complimentary chocolate was very impressive, and every piece of crockery and cutlery used was spotless - and graded.
This is a five star establishment, and €2.50 odd for a cup of freshly ground coffee is extremely good value. As I work in the hospitality industry, I have visited hotels not so far away in Dublin where €4.95 was happily charged for a cappuccino - now that is questionable!
From my brief visit, the Savoy seems to be an oasis of calm right in the centre of Limerick city. I would certainly recommend it to anyone considering a short break in Limerick - shopping, sport, live entertainment - all within a stones-throw! Hotels like this are one of many independently owned hotels that are focused on giving the 'céad míle fáilte' that is the basis of the Irish hospitality industry. Keep up the good work.
