Just a word of thanks to you and all the staff for a great Conference. Our choice of venue of The Malton Killarney proved to be a great decision, the facilities were just first class but it was the food, staff, service and just the no problem approach-can do, to our ongoing demands that proved to be the real winner. We all know that this is not easy to achieve but from our point of view it was just seamless experience.
Ye have in place a diversity of personalities within the staff, which is good and yet there is a clear unity of purpose in how they go about providing a top class service. Please pass our sincere thanks to each and everyone of the staff, the all ladies office staff, those that we meet out front of house, and those who are often the unseen but vital cogs behind the scenes, back of house. we arrived at the Hotel, last autumn on our first visit and you gave us a most warm greeting and then set about in a most professional way to sell the Hotel, planting the thought that ye should be number one on our list for consideration. Since the day it was decided to hold GRA Conference 2016 in The Malton Killarney you have always worked with us, made all of our decisions along the way easy.
For all of that and especially for your no problem- leave it with me approach, throughout Conference, even though we knew when asking that often our requests were unreasonable, would like to express a personnel sincere thanks, as indeed everything overall was just about perfect.

Irish Hospitality Industry Charity Climb
What a weekend and without a doubt it was down to all the arrangements made with The Malton Team. Elaine, I would like to mention in particular,we had been arranging this event since last year so I wanted to note a particular thanks to her directly. She is the essence of hospitality and perfect host. The arrangements made were all agreed but carried out to perfection so sincere thanks for that.
The team at The Malton from start to finish on arrival couldn’t do enough for me. I am extremely grateful to all and note Annette at reception, Gary who was my god send on Saturday evening in particular his assistance to get out slide show down in time he was a genius. The team at concierge were only too willing to assist and also Mary the Trojan worker to get all our packs to all the rooms. Paul on the Saturday night the dinner was amazing food excellent and made the night so special with the private dining room. The climb was over 8 hours thankfully this year we didn’t keep the bar staff up to late unlike other years most were so exhausted it was a nice chance to just get to chill out and enjoy the company of all climbers.
So all in all what can I say it was an experience to cherish for life and Elaine and the team at Malton made it come true. I am so pleased that on the basis that all my guest's are involved in the hospitality industry that they got to experience Malton and the hospitality you provided. Rest assure I will be down again.

Circuit Deja Vu
I have been organising international medical congresses in 5 star hotels around the world for over 35 years and our recent Circuit of Ireland International Rally reunion in The Malton Hotel was a huge success. This was due to the very high standards set by the hotel and its well trained staff. Excellent friendly service, superb food served quickly and without fuss for over 300 people at the banquets and a "how can we help" attitude made this event a pleasure for us as organisers. On top of this, the superb spacious and well equipped conference facilities made The Malton an ideal venue.

On behalf of Epilepsy Ireland, I would like to thank The Malton and your staff so much for everything you did to make our conference such a great success. We were really delighted with the conference as a whole, and with the hotels’ fantastic service to all our delegates and staff. You have been so helpful to both of us before and during this event, and I want to thank Emer Corridan (Conference and Banqueting Coordinator) and also the conference team (esp. Adam!) for being so helpful.
The day went great, everything was smooth, the lunches were all served in great time and the service team and the chef deserve a great thanks for wonderful food and service, and indeed the front of house reception team were also very efficient and friendly. Please pass our kind thanks on to all.

I just wanted to say thank you to the team for everything in the lead up to and while onsite for EUROPARC. I have never received such positive feedback from clients and delegates about a conference before and the flexibility and constant cheerfulness of your team made my time in Killarney very pleasant. Nothing was ever a problem and everything was done with a smile. We were well looked after between Michele, Emer, Paul, Andrew, Arthur (and his team), Mike, Sean, Bjorn…. I am sure I have forgotten lots of names here but please do pass on our thanks to all the team involved.

Irish Society of Urology
The Irish Society of Urology (ISU) recently held its 2014 annual meeting in The Malton Hotel. We would like to take this opportunity to warmly thank Elaine, Bjorn, Madeline and their teams for their exquisite attention to detail and support we received during our time in the hotel. The conference facilities within the Malton Hotel are unlike any facilities we have used in hotels to date, the centre was fully equipped for our needs and worked seamlessly.

From the outset thank you and your colleagues for a wonderful meeting. The conference centre as I expected was excellent, very flexible in its configuration and in excellent condition & very user friendly. The food was superb right through. Breakfast and setting terrific, lunches went down a treat and Gala dinner was really enjoyable. I am saving the best for last regarding the staff. I think that good staff makes the difference between a good hotel and a very good one. In your case the latter is definitely the case. In summary thank you for a wonderful experience. The feedback has been extremely positive and remember that while Iarnród Éireann(Irish Rail) does not usually do door to door, in your case they make an exception which is a marvellous feature.

I would like to thank all the staff at the Malton for a wonderful stay and for all their help in our recent conference. The thoughtfulness and the "no job was too big" approach from everyone meant the conference went without hitch and reduced my stress levels considerably. The food was amazing, the facilities were fantastic and I would highly recommend The Kennedy Suite (the most unbelievable luxury). Can't wait to go back again. If anyone is planning a conference in Killarney, I could not recommend The Malton enough.

Irish Cardiac Society
The Malton is a wonderful venue to hold business conferences. We are repeat clients. The facilities are top of the range and world class. The staff and management excel in making sure that both organizers and delegates enjoy their conference and many delegates extend their stay because of the wonderful atmosphere, welcome and dining.

My colleagues & I recently held our annual meeting in The Malton and I would like to take this opportunity to compliment all the staff. Our meeting was a great success which was in no small part due to the professionalism and hospitality we received in The Malton. It is a superb venue, with a great team and was excellent value for money. I would like to particularly compliment Emer and Elaine in the events office and Adam in the conference centre who was a great help over the few days.
Siobhan Kelly, Irish College of Ophthalmologists
Killarney and the Malton Hotel together with its sister properties the Killarney Park and Ross Hotels offered the perfect location to host a prestigious, high profile event for 600 delegates. The program had to be balanced to cater for the significant numbers of overseas delegates who were expecting the very best of Irish culture while at the same time meeting the needs of the participants whose home is Ireland. We were delighted at the cooperation we received from the Malton to achieve this objective. Nothing fazed them, even when we asked to erect a 1200 sq. metre marquee in their gardens!
Ronan Flood, Advantage ICO, Dublin
Many thanks to Elaine and “The Malton Hotel” for looking after us so well. The hotel is beautiful but the excellent service from you and your colleagues makes you stand out. As you know we have held our Engagement with Bluebird Care event in seven different hotels in seven different locations around the country and our experience in Killarney and the Malton was streets ahead of the rest. Looking forward to our next event in Killarney already! Many Thanks & Regards
