The Arbutus is one of Killarney's true original hotels. Located in the town centre it is a historic, family run hotel -The Arbutus is best described as a Country House Manor in the heart of Killarney . Whilst small, it has the luxurious accommodation and service expected from a larger hotel, with the advantage of all the personal attention and discretion that a smaller property can offer. Location, service, knowledge and comfort. It is often described by guests as a home away from home. We look forward to the opportunity of making you feel at home

The ladies on staff here couldn’t be nicer! Breakfast was excellent & the hotel is an easy walk to everything, right in the center of town. We arrived a bit early for the room so they put us in the parlor & gave us tea & delicious ginger cake.
