Hotel Details


Hotel Description

If you are seeking an utterly unique experience, genuine Irish hospitality and a hotel with character, the Arbutus Hotel is for you. Established in 1926, the hotel continues a proud family tradition of extending the warmest of welcomes to the Arbutus Hotel and Killarney. The hotel is situated among the shops, pubs and restaurants of Killarney town center. Parking is available in the adjacent carpark. Each room has an individual charm, blending antique pieces with contemporary comforts to create a haven of peace and relaxation. Enjoy a drink, a chat and maybe a bit of music in Buckley’s Bar. From the wood paneled walls and turf fire to musicians playing in the corner, some things have changed very little since founder Tim Buckley’s time.
