Flora on display delightful. Afternoon Tea served in the reading room. 12.30 to 5.30. Wine tasting available. Excellent whiskeys too. You can walk everywhere from this Hotel. To bars. Clubs, restaurants and shops. Church there too should you wish to visit. Train station on doorstep. Killarney shopping outlet next to it also. Not far from Muckross and park. Delightful charming very professional team. Cannot wait to return.

A place apart
We chose The Great Southern Hotel for a short trip to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday which happened to fall on Valentine's Day. We love this hotel, the ambience, the comfort and particularly the friendliness and helpfulness of all staff made it an even more special occasion.
