I recently spent a couple of nights at the International Hotel Killarney with my parents while on a three-week trip of Ireland and the UK. Our welcome to the hotel was excellent and we were allocated a large room with three beds that was clean and well decorated. Hotel wi-fi was great and we had an excellent view from our bay window.
Parking is a bit of a walk - about a block down the street - but it's worth it as there is plenty of it and it is very inexpensive given the city center location. The lot does not charge between 6:30 PM and 8:30 AM so as long as you feed the pay and display machine before and after that time, you can often park for a minimal rate. The hotel is located next to Killarney's high street featuring many shops and excellent restaurants. Additionally, we found the drive to the national park is only ten minutes.
The hotel offers many extras including the snooker room (we enjoyed a game one evening - the use of the table is free but there is a small refundable deposit to use the set of balls), a golf simulator and a full library. The building retains its historic charm but the rooms are modern and contain all the necessary amenities.
Breakfast was included in our rate and of good quality. We enjoyed chatting with our waitresses each morning who often asked us about our plans for the day or kindly inquired after my elderly parent's health. Overall, I would absolutely stay here again and recommend this place to other travelers. Great stay in an excellent location.
