Experience luxury and comfort in the peaceful setting of Ireland's most famous and beautiful area, Killarney. Scartlea House is a gem, nestled under the mountains and practically inside Killarney's renowned National Park in the South-West of enchanting Ireland. All 5 bedrooms were newly renovated in 2014 with new paint, furniture and curtains etc - we have given each a unique style making them both inviting and comfortable. Our achitecturally built house, within walking distance to the National Park and 5 minutes drive from Killarney town centre, is just four years old and has been finished to a very high standard. It is spacious, bright and warm and, despite being a large house, retains a cosy atmosphere. Although it is new and quite modern, the house has a country classic look which makes it very comfortable. There is underfloor heating throughout giving a constant temperature all year round. The large windows make the whole house very bright and allow guests to enjoy the wonderful garden and it's private setting even from indoors. On offer to our guests are: Living: Entrance Hall- spacious and welcoming with it's beautiful curved staircase and gallery, Kitchen/Dining Room - open plan, with everything for the amateur chef including a 7 ring gas stove with three ovens and a large handmade dining table made from reclaimed wood, easily seating 8-10 people and looking out across the entire back garden. Living Room - open to kitchen, this is a large, high ceilinged room, with an L-shaped leather couch, LCD TV, and DVD player and a beautiful gas stove to cosy up the evenings. Sitting Room – elegant evening room with a HD projector and cinema screen for the home theatre. All these rooms also have a built-in central music system. Laundry room – with washing machine, dryer and freezer. Study - with bureau and computer for your use, just off the kitchen. Please Note: Although our home is wired for internet and is usually fine for basic usage, this is rural Ireland and the connection can be unreliable at times so please do not rely on it for important work etc. There is free WiFi in the town centre and in all the hotels nearby if ours should not be working during your stay. Mobile phone coverage is perfect in the area but you may find it difficult to use your phone inside the house itself as our walls are so thick the signal has trouble coming through!! Simply standing outside or near a window does the trick! Bedrooms: Master Bedroom 1 - with Super King size bed, TV and ensuite. High ceilings and mountain views. Bedroom 2 - with Super King size bed. High ceilings and mountain views. bedroom 3 - with double bed + small single bed, overlooking gardens. Bedroom 4 - with 2 single beds. Overlooking gardens. Downstairs Bedroom 5 - with King size bed and TV, adjacent to shower room, facing gardens. There is also a double Futon in the 'attic' (open space) as well as a double sofabed in the living room. Baby Cots available on request. Bathrooms: Master Ensuite - with a separate walk-in shower and double spa bath Family Bathroom - with separate walk-in shower and steel bath. Downstairs Bathroom - with walk-in shower. Gardens: A large, well established garden surrounds the house with many beautiful birch and willow trees. There is a swing & slide set, a playhouse, a 'fairy ring' and a fire pit good for a bonfire as well as a big Australian style Barbeque on the sheltered Patio which also has loudspeakers and heaters over the table. Alongside the stone water feature and slate chippings, the many and varied plants and trees bring much colour to the garden throughout the year. For your convenience, the final clean as well as all utilities are covered in the rates. On request child safety gates, high chairs and cots can be made available. You can even order your groceries in advance, to be delivered on your arrival date from our local Tesco supermarket. Though quiet and rural, in an area of Ireland famed for the beauty of its mountains and lakes, the house is also close to all the amenities of the bustling town of Killarney. The ideal retreat for families, golfers, hikers and bikers, cyclists, adventurers, fishermen, artists and of course anyone interested in history, culture and music and general good Irish craic! We look forward to welcoming you to the Kingdom of Kerry soon!More

About the neighbourhood
KILLARNEY TOWN: We are a five minute drive/20 minute pleasant cycle to Killarney town, the jewel in Ireland's crown, and arguably the one must see place in the country. Tourists have flocked to our lively and colourful little town for centuries on account of the amazing nature and, accordingly, the town has a huge range of bars, cafes, restaurants and hotels offering fine dining, drinking and entertainment. The centre is small but always atmospheric and there is a particular buzz in the town which attracts both foreigners and tourists from around Ireland. Although best known for it's outdoor activities, for the less adventurous (or exhausted) traveller, Killarney offers cosy pubs with great music, a 6 screen cinema, good shopping and many hotel spas and leisure centres open to non-residen...
