The Arbutus is a step back in time, in all the best ways possible. It is elegant, but soft and warm. The rooms are old in style, but not dated. Everything was clean, well maintained, and of obvious quality. The staff were helpful and pleasant,...More

About
Description
The Arbutus is one of Killarney's true original hotels. Located in the town centre it is a historic, family run hotel -The Arbutus is best described as a Country House Manor in the heart of Killarney . Whilst More small, it has the luxurious accommodation and service expected from a larger hotel, with the advantage of all the personal attention and discretion that a smaller property can offer. Location, service, knowledge and comfort. It is often described by guests as a home away from home. We look forward to the opportunity of making you feel at home Less

Other option is taxi or bus into the train/bus station in Limerick City . About 20min journey. From there you can inquire about trains/buses.
