Does the Great Southern Killarney offer disability parking?
There is a parking lot with handicapped parking next door but it is separate, you would need to pay more for this parking.

What is the size of the Junior Suites there at the Malton?
I found the junior suite spacious. There was a good sized bathroom with separate shower and bath. There was a sitting/lounge area with sofa and arm chair. A very large bed also. I would recommend.
