Excellent food, but more than that the service was top: After a long day discovering Ireland's coast line around Dingle and back, we stopped without a reservation to the Butler Arms Hotel, to our absolute delight we managed to wait a short time for a table and enjoyed a first class meal on Good Friday, followed by what I can...

The staff were very attentive and friendly. Atmosphere buzzing. Food excellent. The hotel bar was really busy but this did not affect the service. Would highly recommend this hotel, rooms clean and of a good size

Nice hotel and friendly staff, the location is absolutely beautiful. Waking up in the morning and looking at the ocean from your bed is priceless! Breakfast at the hotel restaurant on average but "The fisherman bar" is WOW, specially for lunch, and need a separate review!

Great staff and lovely food in the Fishermans Bar. The full Irish was also excellent for breakfast. A very nice place to stay to explore this stunning coastline. We had a fantastic view from the room.

We were in Waterville to celebrate a birthday and opted to stay in the Butler Arms for three nights. We arrived on a Sunday evening in a horrible rain storm and were greeted by lovely turf fire in foyer and welcoming staff. Our room overlooked the bay however the heating was not working, so requested room change which was done....

We only had a meal in the bar but we had a very warm welcome and a delicious meal here. The staff were very professional and considerate even though it was very busy. The fish food was especially delicious. Somewhere we wished we had been around for longer.

This is a great family run hotel with good facilities excellent service and atmosphere. The staff are well trained and nothing is too much trouble . If you manage to catch a fish they will put it in the freezer, there is a drying room for the odd day you might get wet in the west of ireland residents bar...
