Arbutus Hotel

Rated 9.0 in 248 reviews. 25 rooms.


In the Arbutus it is all about people and the most important person to us is YOU not us. We want to know what you like, what you do not like and why you are thinking of coming to Killarney and considering us as your place of choice. Please ask as many questions as you like by phone or email before you make a reservation. We want you to be happy while you are here and be very happy and satisfied when you are leaving.

Situated in the heart of Killarney, the historic Arbutus Hotel has been run by the same family for over 86 years. This hotel offers free WiFi in public areas.

Each room has its own distinctive décor, and some rooms have the original Celtic Deco style from the 1920s.

In the mornings, freshly cooked breakfasts can be enjoyed until 11:00. This is served alongside fresh scones. Guests can enjoy a fine pint in the award-winning Buckley's Bar, which also serves home-cooked meals made from traditional Irish recipes.

The Arbutus is one of Killarney's original hotels. It is a 5-minute stroll from the train and bus station and only 10 minutes’ drive from Killarney National Park. The hotel is set amongst Killarney’s shops, pubs, and restaurants.
