The Hayfield Family Collection is a proudly independent collection of unique properties owned and managed by the Scally family. Hoteliers for 3 generations, the Scally family, are the proprietors of Hayfield Manor, Great Southern Killarney and Killarney Royal hotels. Each property in the Hayfield Family Collection is distinctive, classically styled and renowned for the finest service levels, where exceeding the expectations of guests isg the utmost priority. As lifelong hoteliers, Joe & Margaret have had the pleasure of welcoming guests for many years. Killarney Royal, the 4 star boutique hotel, is the original property of the collection, Hayfield Manor, opened its doors in 1996 and in November 2014, a third hotel was added to the collection when the Scally family took ownership of Great Southern Killarney, a beautiful 4 star Victorian hotel also situated in Killarney, dating back to 1854. Joe & Margaret Scally are delighted that each of their four children are continuing in the family tradition by leading teams at the historic properties. Anne-Marie is Creative Director for all three properties while her husband Ettienne is CEO of the Collection. Claire is Communications Director, Brian is Director of Revenue, and Mark is Financial Director of the company.
