We stayed in Killarney at Arbutus Hotel for 4 nights. The staff were lovey and very accommodating. Reception was always available to answer all of our questions and provide any information we needed. They were responsive, informative and warm! Would definitely recommend for short or long stays. The location was central to everything! Very convenient and enjoyable.

Centrally located so is easy to get around central part of town. Not very convenient if driving as no parking at hotel at all even to drop off bags. There are paid public car parks a short walk away but it can be difficult to get a spot in these depending on time of day so not a great choice... More

We stayed for three nights during a golfing trip. Great attentive staff and nice rooms. If you get a room on the street you will be able to watch the tourist come and go but you will also be able to hear the beer delivery trucks dropping off kegs at 6:30 in the morning as well. Best to opt for... More

Great location in town. Short walk to any number of restaurants and pubs. Rooms are fairly large, clean and cozy. Breakfast included each day. The only hotel we experienced I Scotland and Ireland that you could order an omellette with choice of fillings. Betty and Margaret Mary in the restaurant were superb. Sweet, mom like, and very pleasant and accommodating... More

Excellent hotel and staff. Betty, a staff member, was outstanding. Her friendliness and service made our stay that much more enjoyable. The two charming lobby areas were cozy and comfortable with fireplaces. Wonderful Irish hotel! The 3 sisters

I needed a room at the very last minute, ie I phoned at about 4pm on the night I needed the room. Ina, the most wonderful receptionist was extremely helpful, and secured the very last room and even helped me out with other arrangements for my stay. Her kindness and her un-requested but very welcome help made the stay perfect... More

I loved the antique atmosphere of this hotel! The staff was attentive and kind at all times. Betty in the breakfast hall was so sweet and helpful. I would love to stay here again! My harshest critique would have to be the spotty wifi. However, I wasn't very disappointed that I had to spend more time "unplugged".

Really nice hotel and enjoyed my stay. The hotel is in the middle of everything and easily accessible. Antique architecture and old fashioned for your Irish experience. Would definitely stay here again when I'm back.
