Originally opened as the Railway Hotel in 1854, it became the Great Southern Hotel in the early 1900s. 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 Great Southern Hotel truly deserves to join the WOW Factor family of products.
