just spent two days at the Butler Arms while we headed out to visit Skellig Michael. I found the hotel, and our room to be great. From our room, we could see the water and the mountains. With sunny weather, it made the view remarkable. Everyone who worked there was so friendly and helpful. Found the food fresh and well prepared. I would certainly return!

Stayed here for my husbands birthday last week and absolutely loved it. On check in we were met with a lovely lady, so friendly and we were thrilled to be given an upgrade. Enjoyed a lovely meal in the Chaplin Lounge that evening, which has a really nice menu with a good selection of items. What can I say about the room, it was amazing and had a large balcony overlooking the sea and village. We really didn't want to leave and will recommend this warm welcoming hotel to everyone. Thank you for everything & hope to see you again soon.

We decided to have our wedding reception (and eventually our ceremony) at the butler arms. The hotel team were amazing and made our day very easy sorting an outdoor venue for the ceremony. The character of the hotel attracted us and we were v impressed with the personal attention and service. The quality and choice of food was top notch. Our party was c. 75 guests and all were very well looked after. We look forward to visiting again soon. Thanks Paula, Louise and team at the hotel for providing a special and memorable day for us.

Enjoyed my visit for one night with nice dinner too. Would definitely stay here again on any return visit. Friendly staff and an excellent large bedroom and not too far from Waterville Golf Club. All in all a good base for a Kerry exploration

Fantastic place to stay, will always be on the list as a place to stay. We had a very large group and the hotel was very accommodating during our stay. Met all requests, and made our trip Waterville very enjoyable.
