          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...

There were some crazy (stupid) people that climbed over the protective wall to get to the edge of the cliff. Guess the sign in English that said "Danger Unstable Cliffs" was only for decoration. We then headed to the Shannon River which ...

          ... amazing around the castle with beautiful flowering plants. We needed to climb up winding narrow stairs in a confined area up to the top of the castle. Luckily there was lots of fresh air blowing through the gaps Because it was a bit claustrophobic. Pretty crazy again trying to think about living in that time. You lay down and a guy takes hold of you, then you push your self right back and hang your head right back down and kiss the ...

          ... still to this day. The publican had arranged to phone the local pharmacy at 8pm of the results as only 2 phones existed in town. Some resourceful local headed up town earlier in the evening to the only other phone in town and cheekily called the pharmacy declaring the win. The publican had promised the townsfolk two free barrels of beer if the dog won and news quickly spread, the beer was drunk before the official results came through declaring the win but by then the bar had ran ...

          ... Ireland rolls up the welcome mat as soon as September hits, and the castle was closed. We then attempted to go to Craggenouen, which is a place Pat had recommended to us - same result...closed. So our only other option was to go to Quin and walk through the ruined abbey there. We also had lunch outside at one of the little restaurants just across the street from the abbey. That evening we went to Durty Nelly's for dinner with Pat and Orla, and just after we finished eating ...

Lots of exercise walking up to the prime viewing points and so windy I wasn't sure if my camera was getting steady shots!! Truly a beautiful example of the forces of nature -- sea and spray wearing against sandstone. From there, we traveled to the Burren, ...
