As lifelong hoteliers, our family has had the pleasure of welcoming guests for four generations. Killarney Royal, the 4 star boutique hotel, is the original property of the collection, which has now been welcomed as a member of Ireland’s Blue Book alongside Hayfield Manor, which opened its doors in 1996. In November 2014, we purchased our third hotel and took ownership of the Great Southern Killarney, a beautiful 4 star Victorian hotel also situated in Killarney, dating back to 1854.

We are delighted that each of our four children are continuing in the family tradition by leading the teams in our historic properties. Anne-Marie is Creative Director & her husband Ettienne is CEO of the Hayfield Family Collection. Claire is Communications Director, Brian is Revenue Manager  and Mark is Financial Director of the company.

It is our utmost honour to host guests from across the globe at our 5 star hotel, the proudly independent Hayfield Manor in Cork city. Our exceptional team at Hayfield Manor are experts at providing the first class service that our clients expect, coupled with all the charm for which the Irish are renowned. A visit to Cork comes highly recommended on any discerning Ireland itinerary, with Hayfield Manor being the ideal base from which to begin the Cork adventure.

Our aim is to create a host of delightful memories for our valued guests. We are very proud to have three independent family run hotels with an emphasis on personal service. Hospitality is our family business and for four generations it has been our passion, our calling and our guests are our inspiration.
