Just returned from a fantastic trip to Killarney and from the wonderful Arbutus Hotel where we could not have been made feel more welcome, from the delightful Laura on reception who hauled coffee to our room because I wanted to keep my dad company, to 3 delightful mornings savouring the beautiful breakfasts served by the ever helpful, ever cheerful Betty and all the great staff who complemented the great service provided by this more than 4 star hotel – everybody diligently provided the most fabulous service to make our three day stay a memorable one!! The hotel is a wondefull blend of old world charm and efficient service. The hotel itself is a period monument to times gone by when you could stay in a beautiful surround, with all of the comforts of home – we felt that we had been transported to days when hotels really offered the type of service that you do not see in modern day Ireland. Food was superb and service was unsurpassed. Thank you everyone for a really great experience. If we are staying in Killarney again we will always stay here. Situated in the centre of the town, everything is within walking distance, car parking is free and we could not recommend this lovely hotel highly enough. Thank you for a great experience and I hope you get the trip advisor rating you deserve – in our opinion – No 1 !!!!! Regards, Yvonne Mullaney , Galway City – PS check out the hand-baked sublime butter-based scones – best on earth!!!
