I'm going out on a limb here to say that the Radisson Blu in Athlone has one of the best breakfast buffets I have seen outside of Las Vegas and Cancun. As you may know I worked in The Gresham hotel as a teenager and while we used to do a pretty impressive buffet back in the day, the Radisson hands down beats it.
Some of the highlights of the buffet for me were:
A cereal bar with a large selection of seeds and nuts to sprinkle (sesame, poppy, sunflower, hazelnuts, cashews).
A cooked breakfast - all the full Irish trimmings, plus beans and spicy breakfast potatoes (nyom!)
Loads and loads of mini pastries, plus a "cut your own slice" of fabulous home made multi seed/nut brown bread
A juice bar which included an orange juicer and oranges where you could squeeze your own fresh oj
This cooks you pancakes while you wait!
Follow the instructions (press a button) and in 60 seconds you have two pancakes
This photo isn't great but can you see the batter pouring out?
From here it moves through the heated rollers...
