Family owned, gracious, hotel mid town, Killarney, Ireland. The rooms are well appointed, spacious with clean, modern bathrooms en suite. The service is excellent all around, helpful, friendly, kind! The full Irish breakfast that comes with your night's stay is fantastic! If you're going to Killarney( and do!), stay here!

For me it was the staff that made our stay excellent. From booking right through to check out. The ladies at breakfast were really lovely. The breakfast was gorgeous. We had quite a few scones as another reviewer mentioned they were delicious. This hotel is centrally located which means you would want to ask about parking beforehand. We arrived Friday... More

My brother and I stayed here for 1 night and loved it! The room was comfortable, and even though it faced the back where the back entrance was to the pub, we heard no noise. Clean, bright bathrooms, comfortable beds. The pub downstairs was fantastic, this was more of a local pub, not many tourists. Irish band playing was great... More

I booked the Arbutus hotel using Hotwire's secret deal rate. The hotel itself is located right in the middle of the beautiful little town of Killarney. Both the outside and inside of the hotel are quite nice. The staff was hands down the best part of the experience. Everyone I had an interaction with was overtly polite, friendly, and helpful....

Very friendly and helpful staff, they provide a map and some suggestions for driving the Ring of Kerry. There is a small store and ATM just down the corner and you are right in the middle of town near all the pubs and shops. Even the locals gave the hotel high praise when asked where we were staying. No hotel... More

My partner and I stayed here for two nights during our visit to Ireland but would have stayed longer if we could. Great service, happy staff, excellent room. Breakfast is a MUST! If you are heading out for a day of sightseeing, you might even be allowed to take some scones for the road... WE WERE! What a fab establishment,... More

The best hotel in Killarney. We stayed 2 nights. Excellent value, lovely comfortable room. The staff in the hotel and Buckleys Bar went above and beyond the call of duty to make our stay enjoyable. Really a great place. Highly recommended to all.

We would highly recommend staying in the family run Arbutus Hotel in the heart of Killarney. We stayed two nights and upon arrival we were warmly greeted by the friendly receptionist. The room was very comfortable and breakfast was outstanding with plenty of variety and the delicious home-made scones and brown bread alone would be worth the return visit. All... More
