“Wonderful honeymoon stay”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

We are just back from County Kerry and County Cork where we spent our honeymoon, and we spent three nights in The Malton. What a fantastic three nights they were. We arrived to find that we had been given a Junior Suite which was beautiful. When we got to our suite, we were delighted to find a handwritten card from Conor and all of the staff at The Malton, wishing us an enjoyable honeymoon, and a box of Butler's chocolates. The hotel really does pay attention to the small details which really do make a holiday special. Not only that, but the food we ate there was amongst the best we have ever experienced in a hotel, from the breakfasts served in the opulent surroundings of The Garden Room (where dinner was served also) to the beautiful four course dinners and the food served in The Punchbowl Bar. The staff also really made this stay for us with their friendliness and attentiveness and we would love to return again soon.

Being in Killarny is a treat enough, but our stay would have been better if the hotel was user-friendly. The room they gave us was under a staircase, smelled of age-old water damage, didn't have temperature controls to provide warmth and had no wireless service. They moved us to a better room. But alas, it was awkwardly arranged, the wireless was unreliable, and we had to take the stairs with our very heavy bags. The bellhop who moved us was unversed in how to pick up a bag and took my very heavy Tumi up the stairs by lifting it by the extended "pull along" handle. When I finally noticed this, he was kind enough to carry it properly. When we arrived at the room, he simply left without seeing us in or offering to help with the luggage racks and such. If you choose this hotel, I suggest you ask for a room that's serviced by an elevator.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that has good wireless service, that is fresh, doesn't smell of mold and can be r...

Dear Lucy, Thank you for your comments & glad you enjoyed your stay in Killarney. I have noted your observations re our porter service & addressed them with our Guest Services Manager. Due to the age of the hotel and size (172 bedrooms) we have a large variety of bedrooms from your traditional Victorian style to a more contemporary style of today. We are also currently undergoing a refurbishment program and happy to report many are now complete but I was disappointed to hear that our bedrooms did not meet your satisfaction. If you should return to Killarney again I do hope you choose stay with us again & we will do our best to allocate a room more to your preference. Best Regards, Paul O Sullivan, Deputy Manager

It was a great stay, beautiful rooms, lovely atmosphere, helpful friendly staff, food was fantastic. I loved the sitting rooms where you could have a drink by the fire. Very close to the middle of The town, plenty of shopping.

Room Tip: Our room was luxurious with views of the back garden.

The Malton is a truly wonderful place to stay in Killarney-the staff were very friendly and helpful. It's in a terrific location and is very accessible to all of the pubs and shops of Killarney. Can't say enough good things about the location, staff, and venue!! Hopefully will be back soon!

Myself and my companion stayed in the Malton in May last. This is a wonderfully appointed and located hotel in the centre of Killarney. We arrived at a very busy time in the hotel due to a wedding and communions. The reception staff tho obviously under pressure were very welcoming.
Our bed room was comfortable and spacious. The cooked to order breakfast was really top notch and the service professional and friendly. One minor hiccup was that the plumbing was rather noisy. (we could hear the adjoining rooms showers). Lovely hotel tho not cheap but would definitely return and strongly recommend.

Room Tip: Maybe upper floor.

Very impressed with breakfast, everything you could want, all done really well - lovely pastries, fish, cheeses, pancakes and waffles to order as well as freshly cooked irish breakfast, excellent. Hotel is classic, appeals to older customers. Nice bar, very relaxed. Professional staff, very helpful. Great central location in Killarney. Took the lazy option and ate in restaurant, nice extras with the set menu but overall taste didn't live up to presentation. Had a standard room, perfectly fine but decor not as impressive as communal areas, old tv, bathroom a little tired, lacks any wow. Bed ok, room very warm.

As part of our Royal Irish Manor Tour we stayed in Killarney two nights at the Malton.
What a great venue. Staff also lived up the luxurious standards, as they all did everything they could to live up to the amazing Irish hospitality.!!
The hotel was centrally located, so it was enjoyable to walk through the town after dinner and do some shopping or a pub night.
The Malton is certainly one of the top hotels on this amazing Manor Tour.!!!
