Stayed for two nights. Had a lovely meal on one of the nights and ate in local restaurant on second night. Staff were very friendly. We had a suite with beautiful views of the Atlantic ocean and the Kerry coast. If your a golfer or fisherman or just generally enjoy the outdoors this hotel is ideal as it has a... More

From the confirmation call I made to our checkout, the Butler Arms did not disappoint. We had a party of eight and made several booking requests, all of which were honored. Our whole party was treated like royalty. In the heart of Waterville, the hotel is so conveniently located for walks along the beach or town. Free parking and wifi,... More

Stayed at Butler Arms on a recent golf trip. Great atmosphere with a genuinely friendly staff. Rooms are very clean and large. Food is very good. The pub atmosphere is one of the best. The pub is also a great place to meet and interact with the locals. The hotel is in a very convenient location. Very scenic views. Front... More

The hotel is situated in the heart of Waterville with easy access to everything. Couldn't fault the staff or the service (especially as my partner left his jacket and they kindly posted it home) however with a hotel that has soo much history behind it, it seems like it needs a little TLC...

I haven't been fortunate enough to stay at this hotel yet. This is entirely due to its popularity, and I now know that booking well in advance is the order of the day. However, I have been fortunate enough to dine here. Believe me, this has to be one of the finest restaurants in Ireland in my opinion, and I... More

Wanted to stay but they were fully booked, will stay next time. Such a nice feel to the Hotel and food that you will remember for a long... More

My visit to the Butler Arms was arranged with a walking tour company -- an excellent choice. Well-located in the heart of town. Room and bathroom were large, clean and comfortable though someone needs to check the bath towels, as 2 of mine had holes in them. I loved that the windows opened to allow in fresh air and that...

I had occasion stayed with a friend in the area overlooking beautiful Lake Currane this summer . Waterville is very well located and there is a wealth of archaeological and historical features waiting to be discovered. The area is surrounded by some of the most spectacular scenery and beaches in Ireland. It really is the perfect base for making the... More
