My husband and I just spent our honeymoon in Ireland - after four days in Dublin we were ready to get out of the city and out to see the countryside. The Arbutus Hotel in Killarney was perfect. It was a short drive (maybe 10 minutes) from the County Kerry Airport. The hotel lobby was beautiful with two lounges each with a warm fireplace and cozy couches to end or start your evening with a warm drink. Our room was wonderful and spacious with it's own fireplace and the biggest bathroom I've ever seen in Europe!! It was just perfect. The town was the perfect size with plenty of shopping just next door to the hotel. So many pubs to choose from but we tried to sample them all anyway - the hotel bar was a nice place to end the night and the bartender and locals were incredibly friendly. All the staff at the Arbutus were more than helpful. To be honest I wonder if the receptionist ever slept - she was there all hours of the day and night. Oh and finally, the breakfast was delicious - especially the scones! Thanks again Betty for the recipe!! Anyway - it was an absolutely wonderful trip that I wish had lasted longer!
