Scartlea Cottage is in a beautiful natural setting only minutes from Killarney and the many wonderful sights around Muckross House. Walks along the lane leading to the cottage saw cows, deer and numerous birds among the majestic trees.

The property was very comfortable and spacious. Anne was an excellent host, very friendly and informative. Expedia somehow double booked us for our second night so we had to leave after only one night. At the time of writing this review they still have not replied to my 3 emails. No problem with the property, just Expedia's customer service.

Anne is a wonderful host who really wants you to get the most out of your visit to Killaloe/Ballina. As soon as she heard that I was researching my ancestry in the area, she put me in touch with a local lady that may be able to give me some answers. The house is beautiful. Parking is great and the home is well within walking range of downtown for a couple of young seniors like us. Highly recommended!

Great property
We had the pleasure to stay at this property for four nights in August. As my wife is in a wheelchair it was a welcome relief to find accommodation that was fully wheelchair user friendly some of the larger hotels could learn from Anne the host. Every thing from breakfast to help finding dinning on a night was excellent. Many thanks to Anne for a great stay
