Following the 1965 general election the older members of Seán Lemass's government retired and O'Malley was appointed Minister for Health. He remained in this position until 1966 when he was appointed to the Minister for Education, a position where he will be forever remembered for his dynamism as a Minister. Having succeeded another dynamic Minister, Patrick Hillery, O'Malley acted swiftly to introduce the recommendations that were made in an official report regarding education, the most ground breaking of which was to introduce free secondary school education. The announcement caused consternation as O'Malley had not discussed the issue with the cabinet and only the Taoiseach, Seán Lemass, had prior knowledge.

As Minister O'Malley also extended the school transport scheme and commissioned the building of new non-denominational Comprehensive and Community Schools in areas where they were lacking. He also introduced Regional Technical Colleges (RTCs), now called Institutes of Technology in areas where there was no third level college in proximity. The best example of this successful policy is Limerick, now a University, where O'Malley is credited with taking the steps to ensure the college came into existence. His plan to merge Trinity College, Dublin and University College Dublin aroused huge controversy and was not successful, despite being supported by his Cabinet colleague Brian Lenihan.
