“Handy location. Great old school hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2012

Stayed here on the spur of the moment while driving around Kerry one evening. I wanted a nice room after the drove I literally arrived at reception looking for a room, so knew we would be paying rack rates. The staff were great, they took me up to view an Executive Room just to make sure I liked it and also look at the Standard rooms too. I opted for the Exec Room, and was surprised at the fairness of price for the room. We had a lovely stay at the Plaza. The hotel is old school with large hanging chandellers etc, sometimes it can be tacky, but in this case, it was fitting. Location is great and the pub next door is good for a trad music session. Loved the Molton Brown products in the rooms and the Molton Brown spa was lovely!

Stayed there in Dec , found the rooms basic nothing special just your basic 3 star standard hotel . The air conditioning was too loud you couldnt leave it on for too long, the tv was small and didnt show all the chanels it was supposed too. Buffet breakfast on the first morning was poor even thought we were there at 9 but everything seemed to be cold, the 2nd morning was a bit better .Dont think we'd stay there again we'd spend a little bit more and stay in a nicer place.

Had a relaxing weekend stay while sightseeing around Killarney at this hotel, which was beautifully decorated for Christmas. It has an impressive lobby, complete with large tree, fireplace and nativity set, and a beautiful staircase leading to the mezzanine. There, we found a wonderfully comfortable bar with nightly entertainment. A great respite after a tiring day of touring. Very comfortable rooms, with excellent bath and body products. Would definitely stay again at this excellent location, right on Main Street.

I have stayed in a lot of hotels in Kerry over the years and here is definitely the best.
We live in Cork and both I and my wife both work so a few weekends away in Killarney is a must for us throughout the year. Normally we stay in nice hotels 4 star plus and for location alone you can't surpass the Plaza. I know the hotel car park is small but as said in other reviews there is a public car park at the back of the hotel, so we never had a problem.
The lobby is very impressive, the residents bar near the restaurant is really beautiful and very romantic with a great cocktail menu. The night we stayed they had a piano player which was a nice touch.

The food we had was excellent, I had a duck starter which was infused in tea leaves and was 5 out of 5 for taste and presentation. I have stayed in other 5 star properties nearby in the Park and Aghadoe and the Food here as well as service surpasses them all.

The rooms are very clean and nicely done. The bed was very comfortable and they had Molton Brown shampoos as standard which again was very impressive.

The hotel is spot bang in the centre of the town so Nozaed0401 need for taxis. We ate in the Flesk the second night which is only a few doors away. This again was very good, the owner was an ex Vietnam veteran so the walls are full of American memorabilia.

All in all we had a great stay in Killarney so from my past experiences this hotel is definitely the best in town.
