    Historical Traveler Reviews Scotts Hotel Killarney

    Highly recommendable


    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 ..

    Service so bad, it's like Fawlty Towers!!!


    The left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing here.

    Stayed one night. Upon arrival paid cash in advance, had a meal that evening in the restaurant, paid for the meal in cash again.

    Checked out the following morning, gave keys back to receptionist. Was walking down the street when, hotel staff were shouting asking us to return. When we went back to them they asked us to return to the hotel so that they could confirm that we had paid for the evening meal. Told them we had but they insisted we come inside for them to double check. As you can imagine this was a very embarrising situation as there was a lot of people around including people we actually knew.

    So we went back in, they checked and confirmed that yes we had paid.

    Obviously, they were all apologetic and gave various reasons for the mix up, apparently it was the computers fault!!!

    However if this was a more professionally run hotel this would never have happened

    sloppy service by poor staff>

    I Wouldn"t recommend

    Fantastic Hotel


    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.

    Nice rennovation but poor service


    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.

    However there were a few probs...

    Door to balcony was left open with no key to lock and other rooms would have access to our room from the balcony.They locked it when we complained and that spoiled our access to balcony as they didnt leave key.

    Also in the morning our shower had no water and there was very little water coming from the sink taps. Had to make breakfast before 10 so were quite anxious to shower first. After complaining twice we were eventually allowed to use another room down the corridor which was quite annoying. The excuse was that our shower wouldn't work if the person next door was using his!!

    When we got down for breakfast we had to wait about 15 mins for a table to be available though I doubt the hotel was full- need more tables.

    all in all we wouldnt have paid more than the basic low season price we paid.



    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


    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.

    Loved It...

    Da wir in Killarney 2 Nächte gebucht hatten, konnten wir den ganzen nächsten Tag nutzen um auf dem Fahrrad den Nationalpark zu erkunden.

    Normalerweise führt ein 25 km Rundweg um den See. Leider war die Beschilderung im Park so beschissen, dass wir uns mehr als einmal verfahren haben. Irgendwann standen wir mitten im Wald und jeder Weg …

    ... seen the day before were no longer. Quite an amazing turnaround.

    Again we opted for a night in and a picnic dinner, plus a fine bottle of Tim Adams’ "The Fergus" red blend from the Clare Valley and a bottle of Wither Hills SB (both at a very reasonable price from Tesco). A perfect end to a perfect day.

    At last the rain is over (we hope! as Glynis has packed away the rain jacket and vowed not to wear it again on this ...

    ... and the kids are good so we walk to Murphy's. This ice cream is just so fantastic! We meander around the town peering at shop windows as we all enjoy our cones. Then it's off to see Muckross Abbey. Walking down the trail to the abbey we see the blackberry bushes are starting to become fruitful. Elizabeth points out to the kids the few dark berries she sees. Shes plucks a few dark, plump berries and distributes them to the kids. Thereafter all three ...

    ... here just doing bugger all - maybe playing golf and trekking around the peninsula. We, however, are not that energetic and after soaking up the beauty of the area, we get in the car and travel back through the Dingle Peninsula - again, lots of beautiful and wild beach scenery - and finally make it to Killarney for the night.

    We book into the Holiday Inn, grab a quick drink and bite to eat downstairs and hit the sack!


    Castles, ponies, and excellent food

    ... wouldn't want to be a "middle man" at that point.

    It was awesome. No photography allowed of the inside of the castle, but you are allowed to take pictures of the view through the windows of Ross Castle which looks out over Lough Leane (Lake Leane).

    From there we took a "jaunting cart" in the light rain up to Muckross Mansion & gardens for a bite to eat. We whisked through the damp gardens and into the cafeteria style cafe, then grabbed some books ...
