It is said that there are only two Kingdoms, The Kingdom of God & the Kingdom of Kerry! The latter remains at the forefront of tourism in Ireland, led by a combination of breath-taking scenery, stunning tours such as the Ring of Kerry, the warmth of the people and the vision of individuals as diverse as the 4th Viscount of Kenmare and our own Tim Buckley of The Arbutus Hotel Killarney, with a long history as a premier Kerry Hotel.
The Ring of Kerry continues to attract visitors from all over the world on an annual basis and the journey around this famous driving route begins in the most scenic town of all, Killarney.
Killarney’s dramatic mountains, majestic lakes and historic oak woodland are filled with legend and lore that make them as interesting to talk about over drink in the evening, as they were to climb during the day. The Arbutus Hotel is ideal for your hotel break in Kerry, from which to explore all that the Kingdom has to offer.
The Arbutus is conveniently located in the heart of Killarney town centre, moments’ walk from the station.
