    Beautiful hotel,lovely spacious room with everything we needed.Close to shops and places to eat. Full Irish breakfast plus waffles and pancakes was great ,dining room was large and able to cope with all guests.Stay wasn't long enough(we were on a bus tour) for us to take advantage of the spa and other facilities but would love to go back and try all of these. Live music was great in the evening if you didnt want to leave the hotel

    Heaven sent


    great hotel,wonderful spa,good food,very frendly staff. stayed there for 3 days and came home delighted. would recomend it to everyone give it a chance you will be very immpressed,just like me!

    Nice hotel, not so nice spa


    We stayed here for 4 nights in April. The hotel was very nice with spacious rooms and the location could not be better. The hotel is right at the end of the main street, but directly across the street from the entrance to the park. The full breakfast had just about anything you could want, the breakfast room was pleasant and the staff attentive. The quiet bar on the upper level was also pleasant. We did not try the 2nd bar or the restaurant. We had some problems with the room phone, but the front desk straightened it out quickly.

    Unfortunately, the spa was a disappointment. The first time we tried it was early evening. The hot tub was luke warm, and the water actually felt cool coming out of the jets. There are no temperature controls, only on/off switch. The steam room, sauna and pool were okay, but you have to wear a bathing cap in the pool (even with a crewcut). When I mentioned the cool hot tub to the women at the desk she was not pleasant, told me it was "perfect" and implied I knew nothing about spas. She also gave us so much attitude about what we could wear in the exercise facilities (even though we had gym shoes) that we didn't bother. We tried again earlirer in the day hoping the hot tub temperature could be adjusted and the reception would be more pleasant, but the same person, with the same attitude was on duty, and there was no point. We didn't bother to go back to the spa.

    We might consider staying at the hotel again, but skip the spa completely.



    Just returned from a trip to the Killarney Plaza. The hotel was absolutely beautiful. The food was better than I anticipated. I wouldnt say it was great, but it was good. However the selection was limited. The rooms were very clean and spacious. For the most part the staff was very friendly. A couple of waitresses had attitudes.

    The bars in the hotels were on the quite side. But there were plenty of hopping pubs within walking distance of the hotel.

    Would highly reccommend this hotel. Cant wait to go back.

    Gorgeous hotel but was noisy....


    we have just returned from our two night stay at the killarney plaza. one can undoubtedly say that the hotels decor is fabulous and really impressive. The food is delicious and the spa is a real treat.

    However on our second night staying there the hotel was hosting a wedding and the noise from the disco was quite loud, and some of the wedding guests were very loud when returning to their rooms throughout the night. I was woken up quite a few times that night. However the staff were very friendly and helpful and the location is superb, only a few minutes walk from the shops.

    I would have given this an excellent rating only for the noise that night and the paper thin walls, sometimes i was able hear the next rooms conversation!!

    I would go back to the plaza again hoping that there wouldnt be as much noise at night!!!

    Great leisure centre


    i stayed in the plaza for a weekend break last year, the hotel if most certainly beautiful but it does lack atmospthere. rooms were spacious and spotless as the hotel was practically new. however, i did think the rooms (standard) were a bit clinical. they have everything you need but they just lacked that extra touch of comfort. the best thing about the hotel is without a doubt the leisure centre, which is the most relaxing place! they have 2 restaurants but we only dined in one as we had booked a two night break with one dinner. the main restaurant, where we dined, was nice but the table d'hote menu was extremely limited. it is also very large and reminded me more of a conference room. the piano bar is lovely and very relaxing but it is a bit pricey. overall we did enjoy our stay and the staff are extremely friendly and welcoming.i would return even if just for the leisure centre and new spa!

    Loved IT!


    Stayed at the Killarney Plaza Hotel and loved it. Great Rooms, Great Staff ( many from Eastern Europe) and the best late night club in town. Highly

    recommend this location! Walt

    Excellent service


    We had stayed in various hotels in the Killarney area recently but this one had just opened when we booked in July 2002. The service, accomodation, food and location were absolutely amazing and we felt so welcome, even with our 2 yr old and 4 month old baby.

    I cannot wait to go back and stay there this coming summer. I would definitely recommend this hotel for all, including families.



    Myself and my partner thought we were in the wrong place, it looked way too nice to be so reasonably priced. I couldnt fault anything about the Plaza, the rooms, staff, bars, food, everything was sooooo good. I felt truly spoilt as no other hotels has matched up since!

    The BEST hotel ever built!!


    There is only one word to describe this hotel and that is FABULOUS. I stayed there for three days in Summer 2002 and the staff were helpful and the hotel is just amazing. The rooms are modern and comfortable and the bars and restaurant are amazing! It is well worth a stay and well worth the money.

    Fantastic Hotel


    Fantastic hotel, excellent friendly staff, well worth the money

    Day 7: Killarney

    After a hearty Irish Breakfast at our hotel, we headed on the tour bus around the Ring of Kerry. The Ring of Kerry is a popular tourist drive of approximately 166km and takes about 5 hours to drive. The narrow road winds around beautiful mountain areas, sheer Atlantic coastal strips and through several quaint villages. …

    Climbing up Geokaun Mountain and looking over Fogher Cliffs was not only great exercise, but the views ...!

    While up there found plaques to old members of the family - Robert and Maurice Fitzgerald (Darryl - you know Maurice - the bald one!??).

    Found some other cliffs where you walk right up to the edge on grass - you wouldn't want to have had too many a guinness to be sure, and step right over!

    We also did a long walk out to Bray Head ...

    So... Day two in Killarney dawned a bit later for us than usual. Well, the day dawned pretty darn early, we just chose not to recognize it, and instead slept in until the - brace yourselves - ungodly hour of 9am. Oh yes, what a sleep in. :-) In the end, it was hunger that got us up and at 'em.

    It didn't really last, though. We had a small breakfast at a small cafe around the corner from the hotel (can't remember the name of it, but it's beside the Scott's ...

    ... food going to Ireland had to be ferried. Perhaps my favorite part of the tour was the views of the west coast, with the sweeping islets and rocky islands. The fog would roll in quick, giving bad photos, and then roll out as we would leave. It was as if someone was playing with us. The end of the tour was in Sneem, a beatiful picture perfect town know for its awards in cleanliness. I liked it, but it almost seemed to clean, ...
