“Excellence!”
Reviewed 10 May 2013

From the moment we checked in... such a friendly front desk. Anyway they could help no matter what. And the General Manager, we realized later, insisted on taking our luggage up to the room and he did it himself. Without a doubt this GM leads by example. The rooms, certainly not standard European, nice sized rooms and very upgraded. Beds extremely comfortable. Breakfast served in a very elegant room with both the standard continental and full Irish. The food was very good. We ate in the hotel restaurant one of the two nights we were there and what a pleasant surprise... not only was the food superb but the service phenomenal. The restaurant manager even took time to come and visit. The hotel offers a library to relax in as well as a large relaxing living styled room with a gorgeous pool table. Bottom-line, great hotel and even more important... phenomenal team! When we return to Ireland we will definitely return to Killarney and this hotel!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the street in front.

This hotel is in a great location. You can walk to shops, pubs, the outlet mall, the castle, churches, etc. My only complaint would have to be that the hotel did not have a parking lot. The rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated. We requested to not have room service and were surprised to find fresh towels hanging in a bag on our door. The hotel staff was very helpful.

My husband and I stayed here for one night and accommodations were arranged by Railtours. We enjoyed our stay at the hotel in the nice little town of Killarney. The rooms were a great size and that bathrooms were up to date and very clean. Service was great as the front desk mailed out some postcards for us. Would definitely recommend this hotel!

Dear Rumple S,
Thanks so much for your lovely comments and recommendation, we work closely with Railtours and look after a lot of their guests.
The hotel is over 100 years old and as you mention, is full of quirky corners and old-world charm but I hasten to add, completely up-to-date with all modern facilities and amenities.
We hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in Ireland and had a safe journey home,
With best regards

Stayed here with my daughter. We loved everything about the hotel. it is in a fantastic location near to the centre of town. The food was fantastic and the staff couldn't have been nicer. We found Kilarney in general to be a great place to stay. The people were friendly and there was loads to do. The atmosphere was great. We will be back.

We had a very enjoyable three night stay at The International Hotel. This is a charming older hotel in a great location. The train station, cinema and the Killarney outlet centre is close by. A few steps the other direction and you're on main street. Our upgraded room was very spacious and clean with a double & single bed, I really liked that we could open the window. The bathroom was also spacious and very clean. The staff were very friendly, helpful & knowledgeable. The bar & restaurant is very nice and the food is excellent, great value for money. The wait staff could not do enough for us. We would definitely stay here again.
