Dreaming of Poached Eggs and Bacon at The Malton Hotel

On Saturdays, following a tradition from my childhood, I have eggs for breakfast. This morning, when I awoke I had a hunger pang for poached eggs. But not just any poached eggs, the poached eggs and bacon from The Malton Hotel in Killarney, Ireland.

I stayed at The Malton when I visited Killarney in March of this year, and celebrated St. Patrick’s Day by participating in the parade.

The Malton is a short walk from the Killarney train station and about a five to ten minute walk from the central part of Killarney. It is a perfect place to stay while exploring the area.

The dining room of the Malton is beautiful with high ceilings and big windows that look out on the gardens behind the hotel. White linens cover the tables and proper silver is at each place setting. I was fortunate to be seated right by a window and could look out and enjoy the sunshine on a lovely clear day.

There is an ample breakfast buffet, but all I remember is the wonderfully amazing poached eggs atop English muffins with perfectly crisp bacon.

It was just perfection. I do not think I have ever had bacon cooked like the bacon here. Crisp and crunchy without being overdone. And. The. Eggs. They had a beautiful orange-yellow yolk, like nothing we have in the United States. Ahhh.

The poached eggs were so wonderful I ordered them two days in a row!

Another day, another order of poached eggs and bacon

Sadly, I only have eggs in my kitchen – no English muffins or bacon on hand – so I could not attempt to recreate the delicious breakfast from The Malton today. It is probably for the best as I am still feeling under the weather due to my persistent cough (and am planning to visit the doctor this afternoon), but I have a smile on my face thinking about the wonderful breakfasts that started my day while visiting Killarney!

I was a guest of Brendan Vacations, but my opinion and review of The Malton Hotel are my own.
