The International Hotel in Kilarney is a beautiful hotel that is efficiently run and centrally located. The rooms are large and clean and attractive and the hotel is within walking distance to many pubs, shops, and other hotels. We even found parking relatively easily. Plus, the breakfast included with the room was very fresh, filling, and tasty.

We stayed 4 nights in June 2013 at the beginning of our tour in Ireland. This hotel has been used in the past by E.I.L. (Road Scholar) and deserves to be used again and again. The room was a bit small, but quite comfortable. even though we were on the street side, the soundproofing was excellent. Service was superb and all of the hotel staff most gracious and knowledgeable. We felt that the breakfast were excellent and service was superior. Our two group dinners there were good (suggest a better Irish stew could be made). Lunches that we bought on our own, likewise, were quite good and reasonable.
What we appreciated most beside the friendly staff was the hotel's location, and that it had more of an old world feeling. It has been updated quite successfully. We would chose this hotel again if we were traveling on our own.
The only negative element was that the room was too warm (and we could not open a window because of street noise) and only had a comforter which was too heavy as a cover.

Dear Dick and Mary,
Thank you for your very kind review of our hotel. We have worked very well with EIL Road Scholar for approx. 15 years and we value their business, so we're particularly pleased that you enjoyed your stay.
Yes, our town centre location is second to none, and any issues that we had with external noise have been completely eradicated since we introduced top quality soundproofing 2 years ago.
As you kindly mention, the hotel has been completely renovated over the last number of years, including AC in approx. 50% of our rooms, and I am sorry you did not get one of these - we do also have cooling fans available at Reception however.
Thank you also for commenting on our Breakfasts and Dinners which are all cooked from fresh local ingredients.
We hope you enjoyed the remainder of your trip to Ireland and had a safe journey home,
Kind regards
Anne Marie Collins

Excellent room in a nice hotel. Front desk is efficient & helpful. Dinner at the restaurant is expensive & not very good, although breakfast is fine. Excellent location. Just go over to the next street behind the hotel to find good local food.

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights while visiting Killarney in June 2013. I was extremely pleased with this hotel and so glad we had chosen it.
It is a lovely hotel right in the town centre, easily accessible to the shops and also to the bus tours of the area. We took the Ring of Kerry tour the one day and the required location for us to catch the bus was just around the corner from the hotel. We used a city lot for parking during our stay which was also nearby and very accessible. The hotel is charming. It has a beautiful lobby, lovely dining room, pub with live music, library and games room (pool table). We were able to obtain a room that accommodated 3 adults that included a single bed plus a double bed. The room was upscale, clean, spacious and nicely decorated. Hot breakfast was excellent. Staff were very kind and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
