Usually the Eason photos are really good shots showing great detail and evoking a response in the viewer but this image does nothing for Morning Mary. The Great Southern Hotel, once the jewel in the crown of hotels in the south of Ireland can be seen but only just while the lovely background of hills looks dull and dreary. Now please tell us how the image could have been improved?

Yes, I would have to say Mr French / Lawrence did it better. Twice. catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000324031 catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000335025
The hotel looks almost derelict in this nearby Eason photo. What happened? - catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000558114
https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/ Any location for this hotel? I see a ‘Southern Hotel” on the lakeside at Waterville on the 25”, gone on the modern map. No nearby Railway so probably not the one.
www.archiseek.com/2014/1894-great-southern-hotel-watervil... The archiseek site shows two versions of the hotel, the original as in our photo and a later much bigger building. www.alamy.com/picture-postcard-for-great-southern-hotel-w... matches our hotel and dated 1908
It has to be Waterville, why would there be a nearby railway?
The DIA says CO. KERRY, WATERVILLE, LAKE HOTEL Date: 1894 Nature: Alts. & adds. are being made by Southern Hotels Co.
Streetview-ish - goo.gl/maps/QsoEKHkhLKYHg1Qy6 The white building seen is marked on googlemaps as The Hogs Head
WATERVILLE LAKE HOTEL LIMITED is located at CITY CHAMBERS, Ireland and is a Private limited company (Ltd.) company. The company began trading on 22 March 1946. WATERVILLE LAKE HOTEL LIMITED’s status is Inactive. The company is registered with the registration number IE011425.
So it was part of Southern Hotels, then the GSR bought the hotel group, then (maybe in 1946?) it passed into other hands.
I see references to it as the Hartopp's Arms hotel from the 1860s on.
I believe this is it in the 1901 census. 16 windows to the front matches the other Eason. I can't find it (yet) in the 1911.
It’s not mentioned in the GSR add from July 1926 (our old friends ITA magazine) https://flic.kr/p/2odxsby https://flic.kr/p/2odxsvB 1908 postcard by ‘Jotter’
Niall McAuley “The Marquess of Lansdowne, the Hartopps and the Butlers were landowners and landlords in the area. Both the Hartopps and Butlers were considered helpful to tenants and created local employment. In a tourist guide of the 1860s, the Hartopp Arms Hotel and Butler's Arms were described as "stately" and "comfortable" respectively. The Hartopp Arms, later known as the Southern Lake Hotel, was demolished and the Waterville Lake Hotel constructed in its place at the beginning of the 1970s” placeandsee.com/wiki/waterville-munster-ireland I think this looks like our hotel: The Southern Hotel, Waterville Comments for that picture say was previously called The Hartopp Arms, as you already said [https://flic.kr/p/9nNRtD] flic.kr/p/9nNRtD It’s shown only on the 25” and later 5”, seems to have been demolished. I don’t see a replacement on that site on the modern OSI, as claimed above
https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/ The Hogs Head is actually a golf course. I think our hotel was just beyond it, judging from a comparison of the 25” and Google maps
