I warmly recommend the Arbutus Hotel to you!

I travel a good deal in my work and stay in hotels all over Ireland. All to often the hotel-experience is a tiring one; warm welcomes promised but not delivered, indifferent food in indifferent surroundings and served with indifference. Even when I have to travel a little bit further to stay with the Arbutus I do because I find they go a lot further to make you welcome. I love the house itself; walking into the lobby feels like a homecoming. The hotel is great but it is also a great place to explore the town from. When you’ve been on the road all day it’s great to get out and stretch your legs and I always get recommendations from the front-desk that are bang-on. I stayed a few weeks ago and the usual warm welcome from everyone there. The rooms were great, the food was fantastic and breakfast continues to be a real highlight, real food served by real people, who care. I can confidently recommend the Arbutus Hotel to you and am sure you’ll thank me for it. It is great to see that which we Irish were famed for so long can still be found in hotels such as the Arbutus … a family run hotel with a genuine family feel to it. Irish and proud of it !
