This family-owned and managed hotel is perfectly located in the middle of Killarney town and provides a warm and welcoming stay with true Irish hospitality. From Ina and Michelle at the front desk to Betty, the superb waitress in the dining room, everyone is "top shelf".
I have stayed at this lovely hotel over the past twenty-three years and I have watched it evolve under the care and watchful eye of the Buckley family: Norrie and her son, Sean, keep the hotel humming and are both very hands-on to ensure that each guest is treated warmly.
It is a hotel that seems to have only top quality people on its staff: Miro, the do-it-all guy, the two Denis's and Tim at the bar, along with pleasant and helpful housekeepers and other attendants whose names I do not know each made a memorable contribution to our stay.
It is a setting that captures the Irish experience with traditional music brought in to Buckley's Bar by locals on a regular basis. It is impossible not to have a great experience at the Arbutus...and I thank the entire "Team Arbutus" for this.
I sincerely look forward to our next visit to Ireland that will most definitely include a stay at the Arbutus!
