The Malton ****
Town Centre, . Killarney

From its distinctive architecture to its effortless service and genuine hospitality, The Malton - formerly the Great Southern Hotel - has been a favourite retreat for over 150 years.

After warming yourself by the open fire in our entrance hall, ease into a soft velvet sofa and enjoy afternoon tea. We like to think time slows down just a little at The Malton. Enjoy the light as it streams through tall windows, ramble through our gardens, and rest for a while on a secluded bench. Where else are you going to find 6 acres of gardens in the centre of a bustling town? This is life at The Malton, a Victorian landmark, and one of Ireland’s most beautiful hotels since 1854.

Rooms: 172


Hotel information

After a restful night, you will be treated to our sumptuous breakfast. Everything from healthy options to the positively sinful is on offer. After breakfast, the day is yours, and there is no better place to set off for adventure. From here starts the iconic Ring of Kerry, taking you on a breathtaking tour of wild seas and rugged landscapes.

Golf in Kerry is the stuff of legend, with historic links courses like Ballybunion and Waterville rated among the top in the world. For the avid golfer, half a dozen championship courses mean you will never be short of a challenge.

Enjoy a day in nearby Killarney National Park, with its stunning woodlands, lakes, and mountains. Visit the Outlet Centre, where you can shop to your heart’s content, or ramble through the quaint town centre, full of boutiques, cafes and art galleries.

Or maybe you would rather stay in? Find a sunny window seat and lose yourself in a good book from our library. Or pass a whole afternoon in front of the fire – without once looking at your watch – sipping an afternoon drink and reading the paper.

Food & Beverage
The great gilt domed restaurant that is home to the Garden Room Restaurant is one of the most spectacular settings for a dining experience. It took miles of gold leaf to highlight the intricate features of the ceiling. The room overlooks the hotel's wonderful gardens. This combined with the attentive service and imaginative menus on offer lend a sense of occasion to every meal.

Room information

Your room at The Malton is about total relaxation. Luxuriate with Gilchrist & Soames body washes and crèmes before stretching out on crisp white bed linen. Every room offers luxury, whether in the Main House, with its high Victorian ceilings and impossibly tall windows, or the newer Garden Wing, for contemporary comfort and style.

Each room at The Malton has something special – some with smooth leather headboards, others with silky curtains, or stylish wallpaper. Some rooms are decorated in restful, natural colours and textures, others in funky, hip colours straight out of a magazine. Rooms in the Main House are designed with traditional charming decor reflecting The Malton’s classic heritage.

Area information

The hotel is located on 6 landscaped acres in the heart of Ireland’s most famous tourist town. Our hotel is just steps from the entrance to Killarney National Park, and within a short drive are lakes, castles, and long sandy beaches. At night, Killarney buzzes with pubs, cafes, restaurants and art galleries.

From stunning scenery to the bustling town centre, to unlimited outdoor and indoor activities, Killarney is the perfect town for getting a glimpse into all that is Irish. The charm and hospitality of the people bring this town to life. No visit to Kerry or the South-West of Ireland would be complete without a trip to a good pub, and here in Killarney the range is endless. Traditional pubs with open fires and impromptu Irish music, as well as modern nightclubs, are all within walking distance of the Malton. Having been so long associated solely with the natural beauty and splendour of the landscape, visitors are surprised by the cosmopolitan atmosphere and the variety of restaurants.
