Our favorite hotel on our 4-city visit in Ireland was the Arbutus. It is a lush and cozy hotel with a wonderful 1940's feel with thee most comfortable beds and pillows ever. It made it hard to get up in the morning! We had spacious room with 3 beds and a small sitting room, and the bathroom had a shower AND tub! The shower door struggled to stay closed but otherwise everything a this hotel was wonderful with a car park located just behind it with ample parking available. Located in downtown Killarney we were able to walk or use the hop on/off red bus to see everything during our brie 3 day visit. Their breakfast offering was delicious and the staff was always helpful and friendly but be advised, they do lock the front door in the late evening so you may have to ring for the staff to come open it.

Stayed two nights with my spouse, and enjoyed everything about it except the bed size. This is minor, but worth mentioning for couples that like to share a bed, but need at least a queen size mattress to make it work well. The staff, to a person, were just the nicest and most professional. Michelle, at reception, was super accommodating and helpful, getting us into a room a little earlier than normal. This hotel is very well situated - within easy walking distance to great bars and restaurants. The attached pub, Buckley's was a favorite of our 17 days in Ireland! Breakfast was great, every day. Monika took such good care of us, and was so much fun to banter with! Even with the bed size being a bit small for our taste, we'll be back!

The hotel is an older, lovely building with lots of character. The staff was exceptional! Michelle and Ida were so helpful. I can’t say enough good about these ladies. I will definitely stay there again next time I’m in the area. Breakfast was delicious with plenty of food to choose from. The hostess was very attentive. The bar within the hotel was great as well. The bar tender was very friendly. She gave us suggestions for when we moved on to Dublin. Everyone was friendly and helpful.

This is a really nice old world feel hotel. I stayed in the triple room with friends. The room was very comfortable and there was plenty of room. The lady at reception was very helpful. Breakfast was served in a lovely room, and it was very good. There is a fee paying car park right out the back of the hotel, which was perfect. Very central, walking distance to the town centre.

Our one night stay in this perfectly located hotel was simply 'amazing'. From the minute we walked in the door we felt so welcome, we were able to check in an hour early, which was lovely as it was a miserable day. Our room was fabulous, clean, warm and charming. Fluffy towels, and a gorgeous comfy bed.the reception staff must be commended as they were quite honestly the most welcoming and helpful we have ever encountered. A taxi was booked for us to go to our concert in the INEC and nothing was a bother. Breakfast was gorgeous, plenty of choice, piping hot and freshly cooked. I had the omelette and it was fab. The decor and beautiful authentic old furniture gave the place a magical feeling. We will definitely stay here again. We'll worth it. We'll done to all in the Arbutus,

Classic hotel with lots of antiques. Fine big bedroom & bathroom. It was very clean & very centrally located. Paid parking at the back of the hotel. Lovely dining room for breakfast with white linen, laid out classically with lovely silver milk jug. Also a great selection of cold meats alongside the breakfast. Staff very friendly. Buckleys bar had live music and the pub was heaving & had a great a**osphere. We will definitely visit again & would highly recommend
