“luxury at aghadoe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2014

My wife and I recently stayed at aghadoe , and I have to say we were very happy with the hotel overall , excellent staff , and the room overlooking the lakes was spacious , clean and modern , contrary to some other comments of other reviewers of this hotel . I will concede that the pool is a little small for such a plush hotel , but still bright and clean . The thermal suite is a lovely spot to relax in , worth the visit , we will be back !!!!

Room Tip: Ask for lake view , with balcony

I had the opportunity to work with the Team at Aghadoe Heights to arrange a wedding on behalf of clients. We met with the Wedding Co-ordinator in November and the wedding was held in January. A short time-frame but with the assistance of Marie Janot, it was one of the most beautiful weddings I have been involved with. The Management agreed to keep up the Christmas decorations which was very much appreciated and added to the charm of the Hotel. We had a lovely buffet dinner in the bar on Saturday night for the family. Then on Sunday, guests had the opportunity to relax, enjoy SPA treatments, the Vitality Suite and many of the female guests had their hair done. Others simply relaxed and enjoyed the magnificent views. At 4.00pm, the photographer was on-site to take the family photographs in the magnificent Penthouse Suite. The Humanist Ceremony was held in the Garden Room. Drinks followed in the Terrace Bar and Lobby. Then guests were lead to the Lake Room for a sumptuous Buffet Dinner followed by dancing in the Heights Lounge. The selection and quality of the food was excellent and contrary to other buffets, the food was still piping hot when it reached the table. I have to say that the Hotel are blessed with such friendly, pleasant and willing staff. This is what made the event even more special and this is also a very good reflection on Management. Their wedding co-ordinator, Marie Janot was a pleasure to work with from our first meeting to the end of the event and was on-site throughout our stay to ensure that every aspect of the wedding was a huge success. Marie is a true professional. When I departed the Hotel on Monday afternoon, the bride and groom were enjoying Champagne in the outdoor hot tub of the Penthouse Suite. What a lovely start to their wedded bliss.

I stayed here last weekend and was very disappointed with the hotel. Rooms are in poor condition and in dire need of improvement. The pool is very small and dated (pictures on web site are deceptive).
When we complained about the standard of our room the manager was very polite and changed our room.

However when I phoned the hotel to ask them if they could post on swim wear we had left in our room I was told repeatedly that they had a very efficient system for left property . Unfortunately all evidence points to the contrary as our swim wear has disappeared.

The vitality suit in the spa is lovely and worth using if its complementary as it was for our stay. I would not pay to use it.

It must be said that I would give the restraunt a five star rating. The food and service were fantastic. I don't intend on staying the heights again but i would eat in the restraunt. I wouldn't recommend this hotel but if you do decide to stay here be very clear about then standard of room you expect.

Stayed at this hotel several times so know it quite well. Despite the reviews on staff friendliness etc, this should be the case in any 5star establishment.
You cannot mask the issue with the rooms with are in urgent need of a revamp. Money needs to be spent on the pool and other areas also.
Too many other options available, this hotel cannot compete at a 5 star level with these prehistoric rooms and lack of investment.

Try Killarney Park and Europe Hotel.

On a recent visit to this "5" star hotel for a social gathering with friends. Situated overlooking the beautiful Lakes of Killarney this hotel certainly has 5 star views, but the stars stop there. The casual approach by staff certainly lets down the 5 star status of this hotel, among several disappointments during the evening the main issue was the food, 2 people in the party ordered steak and both arrived lukewarm and certainly not cooked as per requested Medium Rare & Medium Well, we can ordered the extra sides or Portobello mushrooms & Saute Potatoes, what was presented was button mushrooms and burnt saute potatoes, ( see the image attached ) along with burnt tomato as a garnish. From observation it seems the staff are local, some lacking skills and forget, a 5 star hotel, that charges customers 5 star prices, equally requires 5 star service, 5 star food, 5 star experience. On previous visits to the hotel for lunch with work colleagues food arrived cool, under cooked, very disappointing.
If you looking for a 5 star experience don't waste your money here. On a positive note the pianist was excellent and the selection of music was enjoyable.

Stayed here with a bunch of girlfriends over the festive season. Great welcome by the amazing staff. We stayed in a beautiful suite overlooking the lake. Food was superb, atmosphere brilliant with a terrific band and DJ, who helped us dance into the early hours… fantastic breakfast and a pamper in the spa finishing up with a hearty lunch. Great interaction with the staff which helped us laugh continuously over our short stay. Looking forward to coming back.

Room Tip: ask for lake view
