Now Named the Marlton

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 28, 2007

The Great Southern Hotel has changed its name to the Marlton Hotel. We stayed here for two nights. There was good and bad.

The good - they had a nice pool (although they made people wear bathing caps, and there were unpublished restricted hours for children). It was the only hotel that we stayed in on the tour with a pool.

The bad - Their internet service is crap. It is only in the lobby, and you have to pay for it. Not only do you have to pay for it, but you pay for each time regardless of whether you use your minutes up. Also it is extremely slow. It was the worst internet of anyplace that we stayed.

Unique Quality: This is a very large hotel. They had an extensive business/convention center area.

Our tour included an Irish Breakfast each morning.

At this hotel, there was a buffet where we could get fresh fruit juices, fruit salad or fruit compote, cereal, pastries, yoghurt, breads and preserves. The waiter would taken orders for Tea/Coffee, Toast or Cooked Breakfast which was "Grilled Limerick Bacon, fresh Tomato, Black and white Pudding, Pork Sausages" served with a choice of Fried, Poached or Scrambled egg. I think my grandson also had French Toast.

Luxury Accomodations

by written on March 24, 2003

Didn't actually stay here, but the hotel bar is open to the public when not being used for an event. Very nice with a fireplace and plush couches. I recommend dressing nice when you go there so as not to feel out of place.

There are extensive grounds behind as well which afford for a nice little stroll.

Even if I could afford it, I wouldn't stay here though. I like the more personal touch of the numerous B&B's Killarney has.

Unique Quality: Have a drink at the luxury bar by the fire after freezing your butt of trying to climb a mountain that turns out to not be the one you meant to climb.

Directions: Right near the train station.
