Killarney (Cill Airne, meaning “Church of sloes”) is a medium sized town in County Kerry located in southwestern Ireland. The town is on the northeastern shore of Lough Leane, which is part of Killarney National park. The town and its hinterland is home to St. Mary’s Cathedral, Ross Castle, Muckross House and Abbey, the Lakes of Killarney, MacGillycuddy’s Reeks, Purple Mountain, Mangerton Mountain, the Gap of Dunloe and Torc Waterfall. Owing to its natural heritage, beauty, history and location on the Ring of Kerry, Killarney is a popular tourist destination.
The Malton is one of Ireland’s most beautiful hotels – it has been famous for over 160 years. Originally opened as the Railway Hotel in 1854, it became the Great Southern Hotel in the early 1900s. The Malton has a superb and unrivaled location. When you add in its wonderful architecture retained from those Victorian times, its world class hospitality, its position at the start of the iconic Ring of Kerry, and its 6 acres of beautiful gardens in the center of bustling Killarney Town, the Malton is truly a wonderful vacation experience.
