Stayed here for one night on our way around the Ring of Kerry. The staff were very pleasant and the the hotel very clean and comfortable. It was very quiet when we arrived but got busier as people returned from playing golf, mainly Americans. The hotel I am sure has seen busier days and this is beginning to to tell... More

This is a lovely old hotel. Lots of 'Olde Worlde' carpets, curtains, ornaments, creaky floor boards etc. all combining to make a most cosy place to stay. We stayed for 2 nights, had one restaurant meal, bar food another evening, a packed lunch for our included trip to Skelig Michael (put this trip on your bucket list of things to... More

We enjoyed two lovely evenings in June at this hotel. Owners and staff very friendly. Though rooms were old (or "old world") they were of a good size, and kept very clean. Also we enjoyed a nice sea view from ours. Food and atmosphere in Fisherman's Bar very good. We enjoyed some great walks. Waterville Golf Club very near by.... More

We stayed here for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was nice to stay somewhere that wasn't a sterile chain hotel. The rooms had great views and were very spacious. The breakfast was lovely and staff exceptionally friendly. Will definitely return but for longer next time.

Just returned recently from the butler arms and had a very relaxing restful stay. The beds are very comfortable and the room had a fabulous view of the sea. Had a warm welcome on arrival and all the staff (especially at breakfast ) are very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast is very good as is the food at the Fisherman's... More

Stopped in at the Fisherman's Bar at the Butler Arms on Sunday, while travelling around the Ring of Kerry. Even though the Bar was busy, the service and the food was to the usual very high standard. This customer will be back.

After a challenging day on the golf course there is nothing nicer than to receive the warm welcome and friendly service of the people in the Butlers Arms. Complement that with excellent food in the restaurant or the fisherman's bar and comfortable rooms ,in this character hotel, and you will remember your visit to Waterville. We will definitely be back... More

We stayed in the Butler Arms Hotel in May 2014 for one night as we were driving around the ring of Kerry. This is a great stop over in Waterville. The hotel has a perfect location overlooking the beautiful coastline. The room was fine if not excellent. The staff were friendly and courteous. We dined in the bar in the... More

Went to Waterville with a group of 24 golfers. A friend recommended the Butler Arms, and it exceeded my (and everyone's) expectations. The booking process was organised, friendly and flexible. The welcome warm and the staff could not have done more to make us feel at home. The rooms were very comfortable, the breakfasts superb, and the dinner we had... More
