This is a very nice place to stay. The staff is friendly and helpful. Very clean. The resturuant/bar with the hotel serves good food and drinks. This hotel is located right in the middle of everything! The only negative thing about this place is there is no parking area. You either have to pay to park along the street or pay to park in a parking area/garage.

This was my first visit to Ireland. We purchased a Groupon that included a stay at the International Hotel Killarney. The hotel itself is so beautiful and the staff was attentive and willing to help with any questions. We arrived rather late on the first night but were treated like royalty at Hannigan's, the hotel's restaurant despite the fact that we were past the serving time. I would highly recommend a stay and plan on coming back in the future!

Dear Catherine M,
Thank you for your wonderful comments, we're delighted you enjoyed your stay with us.
We work closely with Sceptre Tours in the US who on occasion use Groupon to advertise their vacations to great effect.
Our Hannigans Restaurant is hugely popular with locals and our regular residents alike, we use only the best of local produce at all times, served in a traditional, warm atmosphere and we're so glad you enjoyed your experience with us.
Thank you again for taking the time to review us and hopefully we may see you again at another time.
Kind regards

We stayed for nights with a group tour.. We have visited Killarney many times, this is the first time in a hotel. The International is an older venerable hotel that is nicely appointed and decorated, retaining it's older charm with modern amenities. Our room was smallish, but had a comfortable king sized bed, plenty of closet space, and a nice clean big bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub and separate shower. Our view was of a courtyard and walls, but no matter, we did not spend much time in our room!
All the staff were very friendly and welcoming, and had an uncanny knack of anticipating our needs. We had a few meals in the restaurant, service was attentive and the food was very good.
The pub, Hanningan's, was a blast! The barmen are awesome, the music good, and the craic was mighty!
We will definitely stay here again!

what a great city!!!! Fun,fun, fun, Lots to do and see. The Hotel was great lots of old world ambiance. The staff was for the most part great, the gals at the front desk were suprisingly not very helpful and didnt want to seem to get up off their chairs for anything. Other than that incredible.

Dear Bigmove1,
Thank you for your great review of our hotel, we're so glad you enjoyed your stay with us.
However I am genuinely very surprised that you felt our Front Office team were not very helpful, it would be most unlike them and I have messaged you privately requesting a little more information on this.
However, all feedback is much appreciated and we thank you again for taking the time to give it.
We hope to maybe see you back again at another time,
Best regards

We felt this was the best place we stayed during our vacation in Ireland. We loved the old world charm and everything was clean and pristine. Even more so the employees went beyond our expectations of service and friendliness. They showed the most concern of being accommodating to our needs. We loved the location because we were able to get around to many shops and restaurants without the use of the car. The buggy rides were right across the street and took full advantage of it. We have several friends and relatives planning their trips here and am planning to make sure they make this place one of them to stay at.

Room Tip: The corner room was the best of the three rooms large spacious bathroom, but can't complain about any of them.

Dear dfmgsully,
Thank you for your lovely review. Many guests comment on the old world charm and ambience of the hotel. We are one of the oldest hotels in Killarney and the property retains many of its original features including high ceilings and nooks and crannies which we have incorporated into cosy sitting areas for relaxing in.
We'd be delighted to welcome your friends and family to the hotel and thank you for your recommendations.
Kind regards
Anne Marie Collins
