      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...

      ... Bill, was a delight singing songs and joking as we rode along. The horse was amazing as it listened out for traffic and cleverly navigated the parking spaces at the Ross Castle and on our return where the jaunting cars are housed in front of our hotel.

      We finished our day checking out the shops in Killarney's main street. Among our purchases were some Guinness merchandise and Butler fudge, made in Dublin.

      ... We were right by the water so we took advantage of wandering around and enjoying the view. The coffee house was delightful, the food delicious and the woman working there super nice.

      After breakfast off we went, heading towards Killarney. It was a delightful drive, Dave doing wonderfully as the driver (I keep telling him this so I don't have to drive). Although it was only 11am when we arrived and our cottage wasn't going to be ready until ...

We set out (seat to self, score) and then Dave made us stand up and intro ourselves. Rock of Cashel Blarney ...

      ... way! (Because the seat wasn't ******!) Back at the hostel, we met tons of new people. A lot of French and German people come to Ireland for their vacation. It is beautiful, close, and they can get cheap flights. We also met a Kiwi couple who were going around Ireland playing music at different pubs. One night they teamed up with Martin, a French violinist, and played at a local pub in Annascaul, near our hostel. A bunch of us from the hostel went down to ...

      Killarney to Tramore to Blarney

      A travel blog entry by euroknickknucks on Aug 26, 2011

      After a leisurely brekkie @ the B&B we hit the road again, off to Blarney Castle before heading to the Waterford county.

      I had sworn black and blue i would not kiss the stone -I did not need to catch the consumption so early in our trip. But i admit I was drawn into it after climbing the steps and waiting in line to see it. A factory line affair. I dutifully leaned back and made a kissing noise. Ok so i didn't quite bring myself to actually lip lock ...
