“Beautiful Old Hotel”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

Recently spent two nights in Killarney along with another couple. Our stay at the Malton was lovely. The hotel is very close to the center of Killarney. My husband and I stayed in a beautiful room in the older part of the hotel - right over the main entrance. Our stay was particularly enhanced by the gracious assistance of Mary Mac who not only answered numerous questions concerning local attractions but also took great care in arranging transport for us to a local pub where we were able to hear Irish music along with our dinner. Because one member of our party has difficulty walking, she asked the cab driver to check the pub to make sure seats were available and this was done. She also helped us when leaving on the following day. We had stayed at the Malton once before and would happily do so again.

One of the many benefits of a great concierge desk is finding the unexpected. My sister and I spent two weeks in Ireland with many great experiences with B&Bs, restaurants and hotels, most especially the Malton. Mary, the concierge at the Malton, put us onto the highlight of our trip. We wanted to see the local sights and also had seen horses on the streets. She put us in touch with Pat, who conducts tours with his horse, Rose, and a carriage. We went through the streets of Killarney to the Muckross Abbey and House in Killarney National Park, as well as the Ross Castle. The carriage had plastic windflaps to protect us from rain and cozy comforters for our laps. The sound we will both always remember was Pat's calm deep voice saying, "Easy, Rose. Easy, Rose." as the draft horse eagerly pulled our heavy carriage. Pat knew a great deal about the trees and history of the national park, as well as about bonding with his horse. Thanks to Pat and to Mary at the Malton for listening to our requests and really hearing us!

We stayed in this beautiful, elegant older hotel in Killarney for two days. This hotel is centrally located and easy walking distance to restaurants and shops in Killarney. This hotel has much charm. The breakfasts were excellent and the Punch Bowl Bar inside was a great place to relax, eat if you wish or have a drink. We found the staff helpful and attentive.

Everything was excellent, the food, the service, the bar, the rooms... In general, Ireland gets a bad rap on food.... we stayed mainly in the SW and the Malton was top shelf from Bibi, one of our servers to Lawrence the bartender... the rooms were perfect, the location in the center of town... etc.special thanks to "SWING" travel for setting it all up. Management of both companies should be proud!!!

Had the opportunity to stay here on a recent trip to the Emerald Isle. We didn't have any complaints. The staff was always ready to assist, the room was top notch, and breakfast was hot and tasty. The bar was a little quiet midweek, but we fixed that. Walking access to the village and various attractions is another benefit.
