We had the loveliest stay at the arbutus. A beautiful hotel itself, the arbutus is a minute’s walk to all the best shops and pubs in Killarney. The staff is quite warm and could not be more helpful to the guests. One morning I slept in past breakfast (one too many Guinness next-door at Murphy’s – fantastic place to see authentic live pub music btw) and the staff was so kind to make me a breakfast plate, wrap it and save it for when I awoke. The bar in the lobby has a lovely hearth and there was always a fellow companion to have a pint with. The rooms were quite clean and the beds were as comfy as could be. Even with the location on the street there was no noise at all from the road. If you are looking for a quiet clean and homely place to rest your head as you travel the Irish countryside, the Arbutus is certainly your best choice.
