The Dfine program from Nik software is great for noise reduction - http://www.niksoftware.com/dfine/en/entry.php

You can get it as a plugin for Photoshop CS3 through CS5, Elements 6 through 9, Lightroom, or Apple Aperture.

It's a very simple plugin that's really easy to use, if you go onto the 'Lessons' tab on the link above they've got a few instructional videos which will let you see it in action and how to use it.

The noise reduction in Lightroom 3 is now so good (hugely better than in Lightroom 2) that no plug-in is really required. I am not sure if it has found its way through to ACR yet.

Agreed.

The Lightrom noise reduction softawre is excellent. I don't think that it's moved to ACR yet though.

If you don't have Lightroom and still need a plug in for Photoshop, have a look at "Noiseware" .
You can also use it as a standalone and there are free and paid for versions.

I used noise ninja for a long time and it was highly effective. Lightroom 3 NR is better though and I use that now.

It's shame for these smaller companies, trying to find a niche or innovation that the big boys won't jump on and squash their business.

Noise Ninja seems to be the one that many recommend.
