The rooms are clean and spacious...The staff are wonderful and very helpful...the food is awesome....The location is second to none....just perfect....everything is right out the front door...I would recommend it to all that are thinking of staying there...you won't regret it..... Will definitely be back again next year...

I live in Dingle and regularly cycle to Killarney and stay at the International en route to Dublin or just to visit Killarney. Wonderful Staff - so obliging and the rooms are very comfortable. This hotel has a quiet elegance and a lovely balance of country and town character. I have found this hotel consistent throughout the years and would highly recommend it for anyone who is traveling to Killarney, The location is superb, just accross where the horses are stationed and a few steps from my favouite Coffee House 'Lir'. Great place to unwind and check out the town and surrounding National Park. I find the International great value too. The Porter 'Frank' is a darling man and great for the chat, as are the reception staff and the breakfast staff. Looking forward to my next trip, as always.

Room Tip: Room 119 - lovely Bay Window overlooking street and Horses stationed accross the way. Nice view.

From the moment I walked into this charming hotel, I knew I was going to love it. It's like stepping back in time--in all the best ways.First, I was in Room 222 , near the "Golf and Leisure" room. I must admit, it took me a few minutes to find my room, this hotel has been added onto a few times, it seems; with quirky little stairs, and odd. Once in my room I was in love with it, the most comfortable bed, heated towel racks, and beautifully decorated. And the staff was superb. I am already planning to come back and will definitely stay at the International.

Room Tip: My room was perfect, quiet and comfortable. Others in my group seemed equally happy.

Dear Cpat1946,
Thank you so much!
Our guests often comment on the friendly welcoming feeling on arrival and indeed, throughout the hotel and in the main, we have our staff to thank for this, along with our warm inviting décor in the bedrooms and public area and little inviting cosy corners for a Hot Chocolate or little tipple!
We're delighted you are planning a return trip and look forward to having to back to stay again,
Best regards

Stayed at the International Hotel in Killarney for 1 night. Could have stayed for 3. Hotel was great. Hotel had a lift to the room and hotel lobby adjoined a quaint Irish bar complete with open fire. Restaurant was fabulous too.

Our bedroom was a good size. The twin room had a single and double bed and a window that opened. The in room safe even had power-points in the back for charging appliances whilst they are locked up. The bathroom was huge but was up 2 steps and had only a sheer curtain on its glassed door. This reduced privacy dramatically. The shower was over bath and the towels were lovely and thick.

Care. The TV doesn't start unless you hit number 2 or 3. A bit confusing as we were hitting the power button.

Location is great. Right in town. Free car park is a 5 minute walk from hotel and opposite are the horse drawn carts that you can hire for a trip to Ross Castle/Killarney NP.

Hotel also has free Internet.

Watch out for the tour buses which clog up the street outside the hotel making it difficult to park to get your luggage out of the car. Maybe just take up an overnight bag.

Would stay here again. One of our favorites from 6 week holiday. Very central for a Ring of Kerry tour or the Gap of Dunloe or a trip of the Dingle Peninsula.

Stayed September 2013, travelled with friends

Dear Dragonfly,
Thank you for your very kind and precise review. We're delighted to have been one of your favourite hotels on your trip and to hear that you would have stayed longer if possible, yes one night is not enough time for Killarney at all!
You have also made a few points which we have noted - thank you - all feedback is appreciated.
We hope you got home safely and look forward to seeing you again for a longer stay!

Beautifully appointed hotel. We loved sitting out on the huge upstairs balcony with a cuppa and watching the world go by (including horse and buggys)....the chesterfields in the downstairs sitting room overlooked the street. We were right in the heart of Killarney. The breakfast was first class in a gorgeous room and catered for gluten free without a problem. On our early start morning we were provided with a continental breakfast by cheerful staff. Highly recommend from Brett and Sharon downunder.

Dear Sharon & Brett,
Thank you both very much for your lovely comments- I have to agree, our location and balcony are quite unique, and we would only love if the balcony got a little more use, weather permitting!
That said, we were very fortunate this year so no complaints.
Yes, we understand that travelling with special dietary requirements can be trying so we have a very good selection of gluten free/diabetic, vegetarian etc options readily available.
Our serving staff, indeed all our team come very highly praised and we're delighted you agree.
We hope you enjoyed the remainder of your time in Ireland and had a safe journey home,
Kind regards
