Scarriff Inn
Ranked #5 of 5 Caherdaniel B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 29, 2008

Having spent the most enjoyable day touring the Ring of King we decided to have our lunch at the Scarriff Inn.....bad idea.

At the deli counter, we enquired if it was possible to order toasted sandwiches. We were curtly told that the only sandwiches available had been pre-made. As they were wrapped in cling-film and did not state what were in the sandwiches, we asked another lady behind the counter if she knew which two were chicken. She was most helpful and got us the sandwiches. Then the woman who had originally been curt told the helpful lady to get out and clear the tables while in the middle of taking our coffee orders. She then rudely said ' you need to tell me what you want to drink for me to charge you'. Having been perturbed by her most unpleasant behaviour we decided that we would leave. The woman's resonse was 'I don't need your business anyway'.

Having walked away feeling that we had been disrespectly treated we asked if we could speak to the manager to advise as this is surely not how someone should treat their customers. Our response was 'I'm the owner, Kate O'Carroll, why don't you write a letter'.

We feel that the way that this woman treated us was unacceptable and ill-mannered. To say we were shocked is an understatement. Would not recommend.

From the outside the Scarriff Inn is not the most aesthetically pleasing of places. I have passed it on a few ocassions and never thought to stay there, having always ventured further along the road to Waterville. However, I was always struck by the magnificent scenery of the area and my partner and I decided to drive down on a whim.
If a great view is high on your list of priorities, this is the place for you. Our room was very clean and comfortable, although not the largest of rooms, the view from the window was just beautiful.
Fairly standard 'inn food' in the restaurant , although fresh.
If you are looking for fine dining I would look elsewhere.
Breakfast was good.
The owners, who run the inn were very friendly and went out of their way to make sure we were happy.
B & B good value for money.
The restaurant, the prices were slightly on the high side, but I suppose to be expected with the stunning views.

Go down to the beaches and the abbey in the Derrynane National Historic Park. Some of the best beaches in Ireland, shelterd coves, med coloured water, and great for kids.

Wow! What a view! This place really does overlook the best view in the world - not just Ireland. Really lovely family run Inn. Very busy with coach tours from around 12 until 3, but very relaxing in the morning and evening. We enjoyed 2 great evenings of Irish hospitality and excellent seafood dinners. The owner is the chef I believe. We enjoyed traditional Irish stew the first evening ( it was beautiful) and Lobser and fresh crab the second, which was the best !.
The restaurant also overlooks this spectacular view which made the food all the more tasty!
Rooms have super king size beds and small bathroom but great shower ( in comparison to some of the other B&Bs we stayed at.
Really cute gift shop and the most helpful man in the shop- Maurice- he put us in the right direction on what to see in the area.
We will definately return there if we get to Ireland again.

An inn that makes its money from coach tour parties/lunches – so don’t arrive 12.00-15.00. In the evening it is a calm place with the best views we have ever experienced. Fairly isolated (although on the main Kerry ring road) so you can’t walk to other eating places. We ate there and the food was fine, albeit ‘standard’. Adequate breakfasts from 8.30-ish. Just six rooms recently refurbished (2006), clean, with huge double bed. But the primary reason to stay is opening the curtains in the morning and seeing that view.
A good centre to go west and east along the Kerry ring, and into the mountains. Good stopping point for the Kerry Way walk. Can be used for a trip to Skellig Michael – a must-do if it is fine enough.
