Re-connecting with Golden Ireland and The Great Southern Hotel Killarney


This Competition is now closed. Thanks to everybody who participated. Congratulations to our worthy winner, Ann O’Kelly from Dublin. We hope that Ann and her friend, Marie enjoy a good catch-up in The Great Southern Hotel Killarney!

The pandemic has meant that there are many friends or relations we haven’t seen in some time. Birthdays, anniversaries, good times and bad have resulted in many missed and important opportunities to get together.  Travel re-connects us with loved ones, reignites fond memories and allows us to simply enjoy precious time together.

Golden Ireland’s “Le Chéile Arís” (Together Again) competition wants to reconnect you with a long lost friend or relative and send you on a fabulous night away. You could be in with a chance to win an overnight stay in the luxurious four star Great Southern Hotel Killarney with your friend, and enjoy dinner in the hotel’s classic Garden Room Restaurant which showcases the best tastes of the Kerry countryside, all under the great gilded dome of the original stunning Victorian dining room.

Built in 1854 with the remit to ‘take the guest’s breath away’, the Great Southern still stands proudly as Killarney’s Premier Historic Hotel and is the perfect base from which to explore the mountains and lakes of Killarney, Ring of Kerry or the Wild Atlantic Way, and is conveniently located beside the train and bus station.


Prize Details:

Overnight midweek stay in the four star Great Southern Hotel Killarney on a twin room or single room basis.

Dinner for two in in the Garden Room Restaurant.
