Came back to the Old Great Southern to celebrate a civil partnership after a few years. It was like stepping back into the arms of Grandmother Time with the coal fire the beautiful red flowers, the library and this was just reception. A porter was clearing our car before we asked at reception, everything was impeccable service with a smile, nothing was too much bother. The rooms were beautiful, the wedding party were in the older part of the hotel looking onto the railway station. Yet again an encounter with Old Mother Time. The food at the wedding was excellent catering for everyone tastes, service was quick but not rushed, attentive but not invasive, hot but not to scald one. Everyone left the wedding feeling refreshed nad having enjoyed their stay. This does not just happen but comes from a motivated staff some who have been there nearly 40 years. What more can be said except go and experience this 'little bit of heaven' yourself!

Room Tip: Go for old part of hotel

This large Virginia creeper covered hotel right in the centre of Killarney used to be The Great Southern. Lots of parking at the back, but much easier with bags in the front. Looks very imposing as you enter & indeed it is. very professional reception but a bit aloof. We had a lovely grand room on the ground floor, like a compact suite (Room 102). Service in the bar to eat rather slow, but breakfast although not very exciting, very well done. All in all just about deserves its high star rating. The extra facilities, pool etc, are high quality clean & excellent.

Room Tip: Always haggle, then ask for an upgrade, most of these big hotels are half empty

Myself, husband and 4 children stayed for a midterm break. This hotel exudes friendliness and a great atmosphere always. The children loved the kids club. What makes this hotel different though are the staff, definitely the best of their kind. The rooms were spacious, the pool was warm for the children and the food was delicious.The grandparents were also there and loved the town centre location.

Room Tip: Speak with reception before booking,always helpful with great suggestions.

As part of a bridal party, I stayed at the Malton Hotel Killarney for 2 nights last weekend. Everything about this hotel & its staff exudes the 5 stars it has so deservedly earned. From the front office, concierge, porters, and recception staff, to the ballroom, bar, dining room staff, household, room service ... the list goes on. The hotel is modern in parts, but mostly old world charm but impeccably maintained. Every inch of this hotel is absolutely spotless. The food was absolutely mouth-watering at the wedding reception itself, and the breakfast was deliciously unforgettable! Many of the guests were travelling with children and teenagers, and the hotel catered very well for their younger guests too - they even had crepes with nutella for breakfast! I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough & I cannot wait to return.

Room Tip: I stayed in a junior suite, number 314. Ask for an upgrade and you might be lucky!

The hotel itself is a lovely old period building with newly refurbished rooms. Ours was nicely decorated, spacious and very clean.
