International Hotel Killarney
Ranked #6 of 38 Hotels in Killarney
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 May 2013 via mobile

My room was very nice and newly decorated. Just a tad small but that was okay as I had the room to myself. My dad and brother shared a room which was quite expansive. We were all impressed by how large their room was.

Restaurants were good. Staff were very attentive and on the spot. My room had a soiled towel when I checked in. One call to housekeeping and it was replaced in less than 5 minutes.

The hotel is right next to the Killarney National Park which was absolutely beautiful.

Dear Cunningtim,
Thank you very much for taking the time to review your stay, we're delighted you enjoyed your visit and that the small issue with the towel was resolved promptly and to your satisfaction.
Yes, some of our rooms are larger than others, the hotel is over 100 years and while it has been completely renovated with all modern facilities expected, we have retained lots of the original features and layout of the hotel which give it its unique ' Old World' charm.
Also as you correctly mention, we are located right at the entrance to the National Park which is a fantastic natural amenity to have in Killarney.
We hope you all enjoyed the remainder of your time in Ireland and had a safe journey home and we would love to have you back to stay with us at another time.
Kind regards
Anne Marie Collins
Front Office Manager

We have stayed at this hotel several times and find it very good. The staff are so friendly and would go out of their way to help. The food is excellent. The only one draw back we find with this hotel is that it does not have a car park. There is always good music in the bar and the hotel is very central. Overall a very enjoyable stay is always had by ourselves and our friends.

Room Tip: Room 117 is excellent

Wonderful atmosphere, clean, comfortable. Quaint. The staff was so helpful. I will stay there again. The bath had a built in jacuzzi. I loved that! Very near to shops, restaurants and pubs, easy walking.

Dear Mayodaley,
Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel so favourably and we are very glad you enjoyed your stay with us.
While the International is fully renovated with all modern facilities expected, it does retain many of its quaint & unique charms - it is a traditional family owned hotel - and our aim is to make all our guests feel welcome and at ease, which we are delighted to hear was your experience.
We hope we'll have the opportunity to welcome you back again in the not too distant future,
With kind regards

have stayed at the International on several occasions as a couple, this time with our 21 year old son for one night stay to attend event at nearby INEC. Again, the service was second to none. Room had been very tastefully refurbished as has a good part of the hotel over the last couple of years. Room/bathroom spotless. Bed very comfortable (even went and bought the same mattress) Food and bar service excellent and staff very friendly. Food top quality. Central location with easy access to many attractions. Hotel doesn't have car park so concierge said he would hold space outside hotel which was free from 5pm until 9 next morning. Highly recommended

Our wish is that every guest has a relaxing and pleasant experience at the International Hotel . We believe a great nights sleep is an essential part of this and to this end, we have upgraded all our beds in the last 2 years to Ultimate Flotation beds with Memory Foam mattresses.

Dear Ann M,
Thanks so much for your great review. We're very glad you had such a pleasant stay with us, and yes - good weather certainly improves the experience, Killarney is such an ' outdoors' town with so much to see and do.
We hope you to see you back again to the hotel and to Killarney at another time.

I have stayed at the International Hotel, Killarney a number of times, I have always enjoyed my experience. It is a comfortable hotel and the staff are very friendly and obliging. We had dinner in the restaurant on previous occasions and the food was excellent. The hotel enjoys a very central location which is a huge advantage if you are hoping to enjoy some of Killarney's night life. We were not disappointed in this respect either, there are many excellent venues including the hotel's own bar, with life music on Saturday night. Breakfast was excellent also, I recommend the Eggs Benedict! If I were to give one fault it is that the hotel does not have its own parking, but here is ample on street parking and several nearby car parks. All in all I will be back.
