“Enjoyable stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2013

Stayed in the International Hotel this year and had a very enjoyable 2 night stay there. I would recommend this hotel for their great service right from the moment youi walk in the door. It is in the heart of Killarney town which makes it so convenient for everything. Their staff are very accomodating on giving you information on all activies around the area. Breakfast has a range of great food and the bar at night, a great atmosphere. Would highly recommend this hotel for a stay.

As a regular business traveller I have stayed in many hotels in Ireland, This hotel has to be one of the best value hotels in Ireland. Not to say it is the cheapest but to say it is the value for money which is important. Perfectly located in the heart of Killarney, easy walking distance to all amenities, bars and restaurants. The staff are warm and courteous with a special mention to the breakfast staff......fabulous, a great mix of professionalism and humour.....hard to find these days.....plus the breakfast was 5 star!! It is refreshing not to have to queue buffet style for food. Rooms are very comfortable, well decorated, spacious bed and hot shower!!!

Dear Marky777,
Thanks for your very kind comments.
We are fortunate enough to have a large Corporate clientele who work away from home a lot, so our aim is to provide a good nights sleep in a comfortable bed, a hot shower and a hearty breakfast. We also feel it is important to offer value for money, so we're pleased that you agree.
We hope that we will be your hotel of choice in Killarney for your future visits and again, thank you for taking the time to review us, it is much appreciated
Kind regards

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights as part of the tour booked by Railtours Ireland in March 2013. The room was very comfortable and clean. The location is ideal for travellers as it is close to restaurants, pubs & shopping. The staff is very accomodating. The daily breakfast is great and I did not expect to get my breakfast meal served at my table. There were other items too on the buffet. I enjoyed the hot porridge. Even the day when we were going to leave early in the morning, I still got my hot porridge. The staff who run the breakfast in the morning are the best. So courteous and efficient. Everything about this hotel is great. I got more than what I expected. Bathrooms are very modern and having the heated towel rods especially in winter was a nice plus.

Dear DebbieA8,
Thank you very much for your lovely comments on our hotel.
As I've mentioned before, we work closely with Railtours who operate fantastic tours.
As many of their clients leave early, we do our utmost to set them off with a good breakfast for the day and as you mention, the Served Breakfast seems to be a dying trend but it is one that we will be continuing with!
We're glad also that you enjoyed your room and its facilities - all bedrooms have been fully renovated over the last three years and are extremely comfortable.
We hope you enjoyed your time in Kerry and look forward to maybe seeing you back at another time,
With best regards
Anne Marie Collins

Spent two nights here. Lovely hotel and rooms etc. A really homely hotel!
Only problem was that staff at reception didn't seem too bothered when I asked about local tourist info. I managed to get what I needed from the friendly porter.
All in all, a great place to stay..

We really enjoyed our experience at the International Hotel. They were very informative as to what to do, gave good suggestions on restaurants, all around, excellent. Breakfast was great, had the option of buffet and an ala carte menu included, nice plus.

Dear Lindab,
Thank you very much for your lovely comments. Most of our staff are from the Killarney area, or have lived here for years so have a very good local knowledge which we believe is extremely important and our guests appreciate it.
We also upgraded our Breakfast options last year to great effect, but we have always offered a served hot breakfast rather that a Buffet option as we feel it is more personal and each breakfast is cooked to order this way.
We hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in Ireland and had a safe journey home, and again thank you for taking the time to post your comments.
Kind regards

Stayed at the International Hotel in March of this year and I could not compliment the hotel and its staff highly enough.. We went as a group and got first class service. Meal was beautiful, staff went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable and I will definately be returning to this hotel hopefully in the near future....
