KIllarney Hotel Awards & Press Accolades

“The Arbutus Hotel Killarney is not just any hotel; it is a hotel with a history, a hotel with style, a hotel where you will be looked after with extraordinary hospitality and attention. I love the fact too that The Arbutus is in the heart of everything, just step out the door on to the streets of Killarney and you are there. Likewise if you get a bit weary you can relax in The Drawing Room with a refreshing cup of tea.”


 Georgina Campbell

“This lovely old hotel has the charm and personality that so many newer ones lack. It is a warm and welcoming hotel now and has almost the feeling of a large well-run and very comfortable family home, with an emphasis on genuine hospitality and good home cooking – especially the homely details that make guests feel at home, like fresh home baking and a great breakfast. And they really offer the best of every world at the Arbutus, as not only do the public areas of the hotel include a classical library and a cosy drawing room, but the adjacent Buckleys Bar is one of Killarney’s best pubs, renowned for traditional music sessions and craic.”
