Although it is some time since we had our wedding in the Malton, we were so impressed with their service and professionalism that I am determined to finally write this overdue review. We had checked out all the other hotels in Killarney (and some elsewhere in nearby counties). But from the moment we met Emer, the wedding coordinator in the Malton we knew we wanted to celebrate with our friends and family in the Malton. The facilities are excellent. The hotel was booked up for larger weekend weddings for almost a year (a very good sign) but having been guests at relatives' weddings in the Malton and been much impressed by the food and facilities we changed our dates to a summer Thursday. We made the right choice. Emer and her colleagues made our preparations stress free - we had complete trust in the hotel and indeed, our visits there and phone conversations were always a pleasure and a joy. Emer helped us with everything - decoration, entertainment, reminding us when we had to make decisions - we were in safe hands. The hotel is obviously used to catering for and planning for weddings and it showed in all the little details on the day - and they did a really good rate for the guests. We really had very little to do except taste the menu and try out some wine - there was no work involved for the couple getting married except to sit back and enjoy! The staff were full of good humour right up to last late drinks. The gardens were great for photographs and the ballroom fitted over 350, although smaller weddings are catered for also. As the wedding ballroom is separate from the main hotel wedding guests have the best of both worlds and can celebrate without disturbing other guests. The breakfast next day was great and we got an extension for a late breakfast. The wedding was on a Thursday so we could prolong the celebrations and the lunch for close relatives next day was again excellent, and in a private room. We ourselves stayed for a few days after the wedding (as did some of the guests who made it an excuse for a mini break and spent tme visiting Killarney's other attractions ). John the chef was exceptionally helpful and flexible: it is clear he loves his job and knows what works foodwise at a wedding.After our menu tasting (and at the end of what must have been a long day for him) he spent over half an hour with us chatting about our ideas for the menu. And we were given a lovely suite on our wedding night. All in all I recommend this hotel highly for weddings: the bookings speak for themselves I guess. If the locals like it, then you can't go wrong!! Incidentally, my sister in law organised my hen for the Ross which is a smaller sister hotel, and this also exceeded anything we could have expected.
