The Butler Arms
The Huggard family’s Butler Arms Hotel, which enjoys a smashing location on the Ring of Kerry, has won a considerable reputation for fine cooking, which they serve in their Charlie’s Restaurant – the Charlie is, in fact, none other than Charlie Chaplin, a frequent guest in the hotel – and you can also enjoy this fine cooking in the Fisherman’s Bar, and in the bright, colourful Chaplin Conservatory. All the rooms suit the classical style of the cooking: Derrynane crab au gratin; beetroot and gin-cured salmon; scallops with parsnip and apple purée and black pudding; monkfish with chorizo, tomato and basil. Great sea views are a major attraction from the hotel's front rooms – the hotel is directly across from the ocean – give you the real spirit of the Wild Atlantic Way, and the Ring of Kerry. Do note that they offer a two-night stay, with one dinner in the conservatory and a boat trip around the Skelligs, as one of their special offers.
