The Arbutus Hotel has a prime location in the centre of Killarney just minutes walk from the bus & rail stations and within walking distance of the beautiful Killarney National Park. The perfect place to base yourself for the best that Kerry has to offer you be it the Ring of Kerry, golf or exploring the mountain, lakes and beaches in Kerry.
You can experience hospitality Norrie Buckley style in the restaurant and Drawing Room.Her home-cooking is well known among guests and locals in Killarney. Norrie?s cooking blends traditional Irish and International recipes, made with the freshest of local, seasonal produce ? her brown bread and scones being particular favorites. With or without music, Buckley?s Bar is a beautiful place to sit and discuss the world. Its oak paneled walls and turf fire reflect the timelessness of a good Irish pub, combining character, characters and good craic.
Beautiful traditional exterior that sits very well on the street. There has been a hotel on the site for over 200 years but the most significant architectural aspects of Arbutus are the numerous examples of celtic deco furniture & design
Lovely small Reception.
In the heart of town, the Arbutus is one of the most historic and best loved hotels in Killarney.Historic in character, yet up to date with facilities and standards, it features the accommodation and services expected from a larger hotel, with the advantage of the personal and intimate attention that a smaller property can deliver. Family run by the Buckley family since 1926, a warm welcome awaits! (GW 02/2013).
