Great Southern Killarney


    Great Southern Killarney
 in Killarney

Overview

The Great Southern Killarney has been a focal point of the historic town of Killarney since opening in 1854. After the grand opening of the first railway line from Dublin to Killarney, the Great Southern and Western Railway Company wanted to build a “Grand Hotel” outside of Dublin. The company considered many regions, but ultimately chose Killarney to be the location of their magnificent project.

Today, the Great Southern Killarney has a variety of accommodation options, including luxurious guestrooms, one- and two-bedroom suites with dressing rooms and/or lounges, self-catering holiday homes, and two Victorian cottage apartments. Each of the 173 guestrooms and suites offer sumptuous luxury, whether within the hotel's original Victorian building, with its high ceilings and tall windows, or in the Garden Wing, where chic rooms offer contemporary accents and style.

The hotel's location in the heart of Killarney Town center is ideal for exploring beyond its doors. Walk to Killarney National Park with its spectacular mountains, lakes, and woodlands. Browse Killarney's quaint cafés, boutiques, and art galleries. Nearby, tee off at championship golf courses and visit the Demesne Ross Castle, Muckross Abbey, Torc Waterfall, and Mangerton Mountain. The famous Ring of Kerry is just a short drive away, as is Dingle Peninsula, Wild Atlantic Way, Skeelig Island, and iconic golf courses such as Waterville, Ballybunion, and Dooks.

The Great Southern Killarney, a member of Historic Hotels Worldwide since 2019, dates back to 1854.

Fun FactThe land that the Great Southern Killarney is built on was once owned by Lord Kenmare, who owned thousands of acres stretching from Killarney to Kenmare.
