Check-in to the Great Southern Hotel, Killarney
Luxury 4* Boutique Hotel
Great Southern Killarney's spectacular architecture melded with effortless service and genuine hospitality has made Great Southern Killarney an iconic retreat for over 160 years. Originally opened in 1854, the hotel was named The Great Southern Hotel for over 100 years then changed to The Malton Killarney in 2007 before returning once again in 2018 as the iconic Great Southern Killarney. The reason for returning back to the Great Soutehrn from The Malton was that many members of the local community and also our guests still refer to, and are familiar with the hotel as the Great Southern, and also due to the Great Southern’s rich history and it’s positive legacy which endures. Killarney hoteliers, the Scally Family, who also own Killarney Royal and Hayfield Manor in Cork undertook ownership of the Great Southern in November 2014, since then the Great Southern team have worked towards restoring the hotel to its former greatness. As part of that restoration project, the hotel’s magnificent Grand Foyer has been restored to the original Victorian design, the sublime public areas have been redecorated in classical style, an extensive bedroom refurbishment program has been undertaken and the facilities surrounding Great room.
