The Kerryman (South Kerry Edition) - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

EVER dreamt about be­ing Daisy Buchan­nan or Jay Gatsby? Well, now’s your chance to ex­pe­ri­ence the magic of the ‘roar­ing 20s’ as The Mal­ton gets set to host a ‘Great Gatsby Gala’ event on Fri­day, De­cem­ber 1, for the Kerry Branch of the Ir­ish Ho­tels Fed­er­a­tion.

The theme is es­pe­cially fit­ting as the ho­tel which is shortly due to be re­named the Great South­ern Kil­lar­ney - was a mag­net for so­cialites and dig­ni­taries in the pe­riod lead­ing up to the 1920s; how­ever, the prop­erty never hosted the cel­e­brated par­ties of this iconic age as it was closed down and used as a Mil­i­tary bar­racks dur­ing the tur­bu­lent years of the 1920s in Kerry. Now the team at The Mal­ton are aim­ing to rewind the clock and throw a 1920s bash to re­write the his­tory books.

Guests will ar­rive to all the fan­fare of a ‘Gatsby bash’, be­gin­ning the evening at ‘The Gig­gle Wa­ter Ar­rival Party’ fea­tur­ing ‘The Lounge Man’, be­fore in­dulging in a spec­tac­u­lar four course 1920’s style ban­quet. Post din­ner, guests will en­joy a turn at the ta­bles at ‘The Pro­hi­bi­tion Casino’ and live jazz will con­tinue into the early hours in the Great Room Cock­tail Lounge.

The evening prom­ises to be the high­light of Kil­lar­ney’s so­cial calendar and all mem­bers and non-mem­bers of the IHF are welcome to at­tend. Tick­ets are priced at €95 per per­son and the dress code for the event is black tie, while 1920’s style rec­om­mended.
