“Great Hotel”
Reviewed 13 February 2014

We had an great stay at this hotel. Its in a perfect, convenient location in Killarney. It was the best hotel we stayed in on our trip to Ireland. My Mom, Aunt and I shared a room with 3 beds and it was a very nice suite. The staff was friendly and helpful and we really enjoyed bar and restaurant in the hotel. Highly recommend this hotel!

The hotel is deceivingly large. From the outside, it looks quite small, but it is very large. The main lobby is beautiful, traditionally decorated. Our staff was wonderful. The amenities were fantastic...the gym and sauna were so nice. Our room was lovely with beautiful bedding. The bathroom was large and well equipped. Even though the hotel is large, we were not disturbed by any noises in the night. The restaurant was fantastic... Best soups we had in Ireland. The staff there were so helpful. The hotel itself could not be more conveniently located. As a whole, this was one of my favorite hotels..if not the favorite in Ireland. Definitely where I'll stay on my next trip to Killarney!

Our third stay in 3 years here at the International Hotel in Killarney to celebrate my 30th birthday.
Our room was beautiful, spacious and even included a Jacuzzi bath! We were left a lovely bottle of wine welcoming us back for our third stay with a lovely note attached to it.
The view from the room wasn’t the best, but for the time we spent in the room we weren’t at all bothered, plus the Jacuzzi bath and powerful shower more than made up for it!
Breakfast at the hotel is always a highlight for us, so much choice and wonderful service. The fruit scones are to die for and the full Irish is a must!
The hotel is ideally placed in the heart of Killarney, so after our days spent exploring the Irish countryside in our hire car, we would drop into the hotels bar 'Hannigans' for a swift drink and a warm by the large roaring log fire.
In the evenings, there are plenty or traditional Irish pubs again with lovely log fires and wonderful hospitality. On Friday and Saturday nights most bars have traditional live music.
We spent our Saturday night dining at the hotel’s restaurant, which always guarantees the best food and service, my husband and brother in law are particularly partial to the T-bone steak!
The hotel organised a large birthday cake after dinner which tasted divine and we danced away the rest of the night in Hannigans bar to the wonderful Irish singers!
We cannot recommend this hotel high enough, its perfect location, wonderful accommodating staff and brilliant atmosphere always makes our trips so brilliant!
My husband and brother will be returning in a couple of months for their annual golfing weekend with the Pegs and for them there would be no other hotel they would stay in.
Thankyou for making our weekend getaway trip so wonderful yet again!!

Thank you so much Hazel! What wonderful high praise! We love having you stay and of course, the guys' golfing trip in the Summer is a standing tradition now at the International - will this be year 16 or 17 ? - I am not sure!
Anyway, we are delighted you enjoyed your stay. Even though it was January, Killarney is always lively at weekends with plenty to see and do.
Hope to see you back again next year and once again thank you for taking the time to review us so brilliantly.
Hi to Andy and the guys!

I spent 2 nights here - the staff wasn't quite as friendly - BUT - this was a very BUSY hotel and my arrival coincided w/the arrival of a LARGE tour group all waiting to be checked in - On the plus side, my room was fine - an accommodating staffer showed me how to work the tea maker :) and the waitress at breakfast the next morning was WONDERFUL. She learned my grandmother was from Carragaline which she was very familiar with and took time out to talk with me - (and breakfast was awesome!!) I was able to walk to the various shops quite easily and very much enjoyed my stay in this hotel. I hope to return some day !

Room Tip: My room was excellent - small but it had everything needed for comfort

Dear Sara-Elisebeth,
Thank you for taking the time to review your visit to us, we 're very glad you enjoyed it and your chats with our team.
We apologise for your delay in getting checked-in, we generally can check-in a group in a very short time, as little as 5-6 minutes as our team are very experienced, I can only surmise that the group must have been particularly large or needed some additional assistance on arrival?
However, we've very pleased to hear that you will return and look forward to seeing you back at another time.
Kind regards
