“We couldnt fault our stay”
Reviewed 2 December 2013

We stayed in one night in the International Hotel, and it was wonderful . The staff were really friendly and helpful. The rooms were warm, spacious and comfortable . We were quite hungry when we arrived they don’t do an early bird menu in their own restaurant , so they recommended and booked another local restaurant for us ( The Bricin ) which was top notch. Our breakfast the following morning was fabulous I had the porridge and freshly stewed rhubarb followed by Eggs Benedict ..... really really good. We come to Killarney quite often, this was our first time staying at the International hotel and it wont be our last !, already planning our next stay .

Room Tip: Ask for a front facing room , lovely to wake up to the clip clop of the Jaunting cars in the morning...

Dear Alexandra,
What lovely comments - thank you so much. We really appreciate you taking the time to put up such a fabulous review.
Yes, the front rooms are really popular and the weather has been so mild, the Jaunting cars are still going!
We'd love to see you back in 2014 and in the meantime, wishing you a lovely Christmas,
Best regards

We were recently in Killarney and stayed two nights at the International. We were greeted with tea, coffee and biscuits because our rooms weren't quite ready. The rooms had comfortable beds and were roomy and clean. Out of the 8 nights we stayed in Ireland, this were our favorites. We all felt like we were at home.

We stayed two nights at the International, booked through a Railtours of Ireland 3 day tour.
My expectations of this hotel were far surpassed in every respect.
1. We booked a triple room for my husband and I and our 26 y.o. daughter. Expected a cramped awful experience but were pleasantly surprised by a huge room, lovely bathroom and privacy to boot!
2. Dinner on the first night in the hotel restaurant was actually fabulous. We were too tired from touring all day to head out on a Tripadvisor extravaganza, so we ate in, and our meals were all first class( without being gourmet). Staff in the bar and the restaurant were particularly friendly and helpful. Food was flavoursome and fresh. The lovely ladies at breakfast both days were superb!
3. The central location makes it perfect for your stay. Highly recommended, I would go back in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Our triple room was excellent. Do not hesitate to book one if your party extends to three.

Dear Porters051,
Thanks for your wonderful review. We're so glad you enjoyed your time with us, we value all our clients but Railtours are longstanding customers of ours, they are very particular about accommodation for their clients so you made a very wise choice in booking their tour!
We hope the remainder of your Irish experience was as pleasant and that you have arrived home safely for the festivities Down Under,
Kind regards

Location is quite good, near stores and resturants but off the main street for less trasffic noise.

Parking available weekdays in Church parking lot at no charge. Parking in fron of hotel is free after 5pm until 9am...a real bargain.

Of 3 hotels, this was our absolute favorite. I would return to this hotel without checking others!

We lucked out when this place was in our groupon package... GREAT location, impossibly kind staff and great pub all in the same place. There was also a great spa tub in the bathroom at no additional cost. It's easy access to the cute downtown area and just a 5 minute walk to the cathedral.

Dear Melissa,
Thanks so much for your lovely review. Yes, I have to agree, our hotel looks beautiful at Christmas time with our decorated trees, log fires, and Christmas lights!
We're delighted you enjoyed your stay with us which you booked through Sceptre Tours, we work closely with Sceptre and they run fantastic trips, so you were in safe hands.
I hope you enjoyed the remainder of your time in Ireland just as much and had a safe journey home,

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights during our South Ireland tour. We stayed at 4 different hotels and this was definitely our favorite! It is in the perfect location in Killarney, within walking distance to restaurants and shops. We enjoyed the hotel pub on our last night- very warm and inviting. Our room was immaculate. We wish we could have stayed here longer!

Dear Lindsey L,
Thank you so much for your great comments on your recent stay. ' Charming' is a word used quite often to portray our hotel and we think it's probably a perfect description, the hotel is over 100 years old but of course has been totally refurbished with great sensitivity to maintain its original and unique features. This along with our attention to detail and commitment to customer service is what our guests notice and return for time and time again.
We hope to see you back at another time and in the meanwhile, would like to wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving!
Kind regards
