“Killarney Wine Rooms”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014 via mobile

Within The Malton you'll find the Killareny Wine Rooms and dining which is dining with a twist. Rather than paying for a full bottle of wine you can put a certain amount of euros onto a card and this allows you to sample wines, buy half a glass or a full glass. The wines are dispensed from a chiller in a side room and very reasonably priced, I put €20 on my card and had a rather good sample! If you aren't a wine connoisseur don't worry as we had the lovely Massimo who took us through each wine and gave us his impression of them and he didn't steer us wrong, I tried wines I'd never had before on his recommendation and they were incredible. We weren't just there to drink wine, they also have a lovely menu. I had the Malton Grill and my friend the steak and oh my word the food was incredible. Our very friendly waitress suggested we have the pork scratchings as a nibble whilst waiting as she said they were very good, and they were. I'm not one for giving 5/5 ratings but because of the quality of the food, the lovely knowledgeable Massimo and our friendly waitress it deserves it as my friend and I had a brilliant night and came back raving about it.

Dear Guest, Sincere thank you for your review. The Killarney Wine Rooms are all about experiencing new wines & fine food and as you say with our expert sommelier Massimo on hand then one cannot go wrong. Delighted you both also enjoyed your meal, your waitress Gosia was only too happy to be of service to you both & thank you for referring to her in your review. I do hope you return to us again soon but in interim take care and Best Regards, Conor Hennigan, General Manager

This is a beautiful hotel and is convenient to town and pubs around. However there were weddings every night and the party rooms were too close to the sleeping rooms. Food was delish. This was a tour.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review and delighted to hear you appreciated the hotel, it’s location & food. We are a popular destination for wedding couples due to the aforementioned reasons and the fact that the hotel has a great history ( 160 years old this year). We have 171 bedrooms and I can only apologise that you were not allocated a room further from our banqueting room. I do hope to welcome you back again in the not too distant future and thank you again for your review. Best Regards, Mary Evans, Front of House Manager

Staff at the Malton hotel made us feel very welcome...While there we spoke with both barmen Declan and Evan, who were very helpful throughout our stay and very informative about the surrounding area... Would definitely recommend anyone to stay at the Malton Hotel. Very comfortable and within walking distance to many shops, pubs and restaurants...I would also recommend all cocktail lovers to try the cocktails at The Malton. Absolutely amazing!!!

Rencelty returned to The Malton for a 3 night stay and as always it was exceptional due to the quality of the service throughout the hotel. All staff are obviously well trained, courteous and helpful. The building itself oozes charm and history - if only the walls could talk!
I can't recommend the Burgers high enough, it has been a long time since I enjoyed one so much!
Thanks to Mary Mac for everything. I am looking forward to coming back again soon!

Room Tip: I didnt use the Spa/Leisure centre this time

We recently had our wedding at The Malton Hotel in Killarney. We have never written a review before but we felt compelled to do so after our incredible experience at The Malton. We were absolutely blown away by both the venue and the staff. Emer and Paul tended to our every need and ensured the day went as smoothly as possible right down to the smallest details. This personal touch made us feel very special and all our guests felt extremely comfortable and really enjoyed their time in the hotel. The meal was amazing and the quality and presentation of the food was exactly as presented to us at the tasting. The service was without question, impeccable and ran like clockwork. The silver service was especially impressive and the room was decorated beautifully, just as I had imagined. But it was the warm, friendly atmosphere created by every member of staff that really set this hotel apart from the rest. I have have no hesitation in highly recommending The Malton for your wedding or indeed any occasion.

Room Tip: Choose a room in the old part of the hotel!

Attended a wedding here last weekend and stayed overnight. Food at the wedding meal was fantastic and the service was excellent and well enjoyed by all at the table. Food and service at breakfast the following morning was very good considering how busy it was.

Room was spacious, well kitted out and very clean.

Staff overall were very good, receptionist during checking in was not overly friendly (was during a busy period but gave no info regarding breakfast, leisure centre etc). However, Mary at reception checking us out was very pleasant and interested in our stay etc.

Would love to return for another weekend.
