Woke up bright and early for the drive from Goleen to the Blarney Castle. There wasn't much of a crowd. The gardens were beautiful. How crazy, we spotted a woman that was on the tour of the Jeanie Johnston with us two days prior. Although likable, a little too informative. Stacie shoved Joy into the stairwell to avoid eye contact with her. The …
Today, we were scheduled for an excursion to the National Parks of Killarney and the Muckross House. The name of the house made me think it was a farm with thatched roof, stables, horses and other farm animals, and the like. I could not have been more wrong!
Muckross House was originally the country estate of royalty, and later for wealthy …
Am Montag starten wir sehr früh unsere Rundreise. Eileen unsere Reiseleiterin markiert jeden Morgen die Tagesstrecke auf der Irlandkarte. Vor uns liegen 327 km.
Unsere erste Station ist der Rock of Cashel, die "irische Akropolis". Auf dem 90 m hohen Kalksteinfelsen liegt die Ruine der Kathedrale und der Burg. Die Burg war 800 Jahre lang …
... brightly-colored shops lined the streets and as we began our walking tour of the city we spotted an odd sight: A scruffy dog riding on top of a donkey. How that dog managed to get on top of the Donkey is beyond us, but he seemed to be enjoying the view. Our first stop on the list was the award-winning local ice-cream parlor, Murphy’s. Bridget had been looking forward to this portion of our trip ever since we added the ...
... we wanted a carriage ride for 30 Euros. He would cover us with blankets and give us tea, but it was about to get dark, and clopping along in pitch black just didn't seem like a good use of time. Next time, for sure!
We had a fabulous dinner in town. Since we walk everywhere we can, we got soaked, and took several wrong turns, but it's all part of the experience. Eventually we found a place that looked good for all of us, and boy, were ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Scotts Hotel Killarney
I was enchanted with Scotts Hotel. Lately renewed and refurbished, perfectly located in town with spacious Courtyard Restaurant & fabulous food just spoiled our weekend.
What differs it from other hotels is lively beer garden open throughout the summer which attracts plenty of young people.
What's more I was delighted by friendly and helpful staff. All in all I would not find any better place to stay in Killarney ..
The left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing here.
Scots is a fantastic hotel in the middle of Killarney town which is perfect for ease of coming and going at night, no taxi's - which are very hard to get.
The rooms are a delight to stay in, beautifully decorated, big and spacious.
The ajoining bar has a great athmosphere, lots of fun and craic and nightly entertainment, very popular with the locals.
The hotel has a lovely bar menu which caters for all and the staff are well mannered and friendly.
Overall Scotts is second to none and I would highly recommend it.
We stayed this weekend at Scotts and were pleasantly surprised by the rennovation. Were upgraded to an apartment suite which was really modern and spacious with great views of Killarney on 3rd floor.All for €100 for room for 2 ppl incl breakfast.
Booked a seven night stay here in july/aug but only stayed four nights,moved to another hotel for a bit of peace and quiet.
Hotel advertised on site parking but on arrival i found the hotel surrounded by a building site and fun fair,they had sold off their car park for redevelopment but had not notified any travel companies,parking was across the road at one euro per hour,so was going to be expensive 8 days!
Room was large and clean,but backed onto the funfair and also had the loud music from the nightly band in the hotel.
The dinning room was very drab and depressing and needed updating,staff not very friendly seemed to ignore every one.
would not recommend it,but i hear it may be pulled down any way for further development so will not be missed.
OK centrally located but a bit expensive.
Just had one night at the scotts garden during the Killarney summerfest. It was clean, centrally located and lively. The dining room was massive and had no atmosphere and we didn't see anyone in it all the time we were there apart from at breakfast. The reception needs a facelift and looks really dated but the rooms were fine. A bit expensive for what you get but it is right in the centre of town, has a private carpark and a good bar.
Great location and a decent property. Food was lousy, but it's in the middle of town, so there are lots of alternatives. Room and beds were comfortable. There is a pretty good pub attached to the hotel.

I loved staying at the Scott's. I stayed the Oct of 2000, 2002, and 2003 for five days each year. They had very nice service. The rooms are clean and very good full breakfast. I even like the bar longue for hotel residents
Scott's Garden: A Great Hotel
Stayed at the Scott's Garden two nights in March, 2004. Nice large American type rooms. Beautiful furniture. Quiet. Located close to everything in downtown Kilarney. Very happy at Scott's Garden. Would recommend this hotel to anyone. Ask for a corner room.
