Recently we visited Killarney where we go frequently. We had the opportunity to dine here on numerous occasions. The staff including Nikki, Declan, Kieran, and Michael were wonderful to us,so we kept going back. The food is excellent and very good value.

Room Tip: Talk to Mary, the concierge

I stayed here for a week attending a conference. Rooms can be a bit hit and miss, initially I was allocated a twin room and the room location was noisy and bed was hard so I requested a different room. Despite the hotel being fully booked for the week my request was met promptly and with a smile, reception staff are wonderful. My second room on the first floor was lovely, much quieter and more comfortable. Food was good throughout, bar food and breakfast in particular is lovely. All staff show high levels of good customer service and have a smile and a few words for everyone. Conference facilities are excellent and I would really recommend this hotel for conferences.

Hi, Thank you for your taking the time to write this review & for the staff compliments which we do sincerely pride ourselves on. We have a mix of rooms at The Malton, some are more old world style & some more contempory soas to meet the requirements of all our guests.

Hope to welcome you back here again in the near future. Best Regards, Jennifer Egan, Marketing dept

This hotel had very exceptional service and amenities. The food and drinks were very well prepared. The location was about 300 yds from downtown, which wasn't a problem except our directions were to city center and it was not there. The only recommendation is for an upgrade in the availability of the concierge. He was rarely at the concierge desk, and the front desk staff didn't have anywhere the knowledge he did about the area and entertainment options.

If you want to eat in Killarney, you better do so prior to 10:00 pm as there isn't any late night pub grub or anything open other than drinks as an option.

I came to the Malton recently before I flew to New York for a quick bite. The Malton has always been a very welcoming Hotel with that wonderful olde world charm which is hard to find.
The new wine rooms are a wonderful addition.
The bar always has great service - wonderful food, great fireplace and a great selection of wines. Declan served me whilst I was there and he was the ultimate in charm and outstanding customer service (quite rare in the Irish hospitality world, I find!)
The hotel is clean and so comfortable, with little rooms where you can go and while the hours away drinking and chatting...
Excellent, you won't find a hotel like it anywhere!

Second time staying in this hotel, room allocation can be hit and miss but 4 star is a fair rating....The bar seems like the heart of the hotel and it was very busy both nights we were there....Declan pulls a great pint and gave us great info on how to play Dooks Golf Course. Laurence made the ladies fab cocktails. Well done Punchbowl Bar! The Malton a place to make memories!!!
