I stayed at the International Hotel in Killarney for 3 nights (May 30, 31 & June 1) and it was the perfect location to tour the Ring of Kerry, Muckross House and many other sights in the area. I had a single room at the front of the hotel that overlooked the park where the "jaunting cars" are parked. The room was bright and airy with a comfortable bed and relatively quiet given that they were right on Kenmare Place. The windows opened which was great to get a breath of fresh air. The staff was friendly and helpful and were quick to deliver a fan to my room when I requested it.
While there is no parking as such at the hotel, there are a number of car parks within a 2-3 minute walk where you can park for free overnight. Given that I was out touring during the day most of the time, it was fine.
The lobby has large overstuffed furniture and there is a library filled with books and games. There is also Hannigan's Pub and Restaurant where I spent my evenings. The full Irish breakfast was great and the service was quick and efficient. The meals in Hannigan's in the evening were the highlight of my stay in Killarney. The service was exceptional, the food was second to none and the entertainment in the bar was great even with the drunk Americans. The stuffed lamb and the warm brie salad are two items that stand out.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone travelling in the area
