Reviewed 8 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

I am actually having a hard time writing this review because everything about the house was literally perfect! Normally, I have at least a suggestion or two for improvement or advice for travellers on some oddity of the house/hotel but there is honestly nothing to improve upon. We were a group of 7 adults and 1 baby and we spent 6 wonderful nights at Scartlea House. It is tucked away just a few minutes outside Killarney, with excellent access to everything (you really do need a car). The house was huge, beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Even with a large group, there is more than enough room for everyone to have their own space. There is a very detailed binder that includes every bit of information you could possibly need to know. And a yummy basket of scones and preserves waiting for you on arrivial. Service before, during and after our stay was excellent - prompt, informative and friendly. It is an excellent house for families, with a high chair, baby gates, toys, big back yard and a play structure available for us. Our little guy had a great time with all the new toys! The house may seem pricey compared to other vacation rentals in Ireland, but it is worth every penny and I couldnt be happier with my decision to stay here. I would highly, highly recommend it to anyone.

Thanks Amy,
It is always so nice to hear from such satisfied guests and I am thrilled to hear that not only was the house perfect for you, but that you cannot even think of one thing to improve it! Both myself and the housekeeping staff always strive to ensure that our guests are 100% comfortable and that each vacation spent in Scartlea House is both memorable and stress free. We do hope to see you back another time. Thanks for the great review. Fiona

“Home, sweet Killarney home!”
Reviewed 19 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Our family stays in a good many vacation rentals, and this one easily takes the cake! Everything about the home suited our family if 6 perfectly, from the perfectly maintained yard complete with fire pit (which we loved!) to the comfortable and spacious bedrooms. The kitchen was well appointed for those long, relaxing mornings as well as a great steak cookout! We loved it so much we decided to stay an extra day. The icing on the cake was just the feeling of being so welcome and comfortable in someone else's home. Fiona truly has a gift for hospitality and we were grateful to be on the receiving end of her warm welcome!
