Welcome to the Arbutus Hotel

If you are seeking an utterly unique experience, genuine Irish hospitality and a hotel with character, the Arbutus Hotel is for you. Established in 1926 by our grandparents, we continue our proud family tradition of extending the warmest of welcomes to the Arbutus Hotel and Killarney.

We are perfectly situated amongst the shops, pubs and restaurants of Killarney town centre, minutes’ walk from the train station. Parking is available in the adjacent carpark.

Each room has an individual charm, blending antique pieces with contemporary comforts to create a haven of peace and relaxation. Our famous breakfast is served daily until 11am with a great selection to choose from and full Irish cooked to order.

Enjoy a drink, a chat and maybe a bit of music in Buckley’s Bar. From the wood-panelled walls and turf fire to musicians playing in the corner, some things have changed very little since founder Tim Buckley’s time.
