“Definitely my favorite hotel of the trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2014

Our Ireland vacation was a package deal so we did not pick the hotels or the cities we stayed in, but the International Hotel in Killarney was my favorite! I loved the old-world feel of the stairway and hallways. We arrived after a very long and stressful day of driving. Upon checking in, the receptionist offered a guided tour for the Ring of Kerry, which we jumped at so that we could have a break from driving and both enjoy the scenery. After looking at the tour cost online, I think we could have gotten a better deal if we had contacted the tour company ourselves but we didn't mind at that point. Once we got to our room, we were in heaven. The decor was perfect, the bed was wonderful but the best part was by far the jacuzzi tub. It was so relaxing to have that amenity available after being in the car for so long. There was also a towel warmer in the bathroom, which made it extra special. I would definitely stay here again and I plan to!

Dear Hillary S,
Thank you very much for your great comments. We appreciate package holidays can offer the full spectrum of hotels but our mission is always the same, to ensure each and every guest the same level of service and attention. The particular package you are on seems to involve a lot of driving and we've found that many people are glad of the day out of their while being chauffeured around the beautiful Ring of Kerry or Dingle.
Also, approx 50% of our rooms come with Jacuzzi baths and they are always a very welcome addition to the room. We're glad you enjoyed the relaxation.
Thank you again for taking the time to review us and I hope you had a safe journey home,
Kind regards
Anne Marie Collins

My husband and I just returned from a week in Ireland and the International Hotel in Killarney was our favorite hotel of the trip. Upon arrival, the friendly front desk clerk provided help with the location of free parking during our stay, and also made suggestions for sightseeing tours. The room we had was quite small and without a view but was comfortable for the amount of time we spent there. We enjoyed the pub before dinner and the food at both restaurants was delicious. The dinner staff were exceptionally friendly, courteous and efficient. The fireplace in both the pub and restaurant was inviting. Our food was cooked to perfection at dinner and breakfast. Still trying to figure out how they make their scrambled eggs so perfect and fluffy. The little touches of fresh flowers and candles burning in the lobby will be remembered. We would definitely return to the International Hotel.

I stayed in this hotel for only one night. I wish it could have been longer. The staff could not have been nicer. I forgot my phone charger and they went totally out of their way to find a charger and charge my phone for me. The rooms were so luxurious and the décor was beautiful. There was a great choice a breakfast. Well done all at the International Hotel Killarney. I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone. It will be my number one choice for a return visit to Killarney.

Dear Trish,
Thank you for your great review. None of us like being without our phones anymore and I'm delighted we were able to find you a charger.
All our rooms have been recently renovated to a very high standard, the quality of our beds, furniture, soft furnishings etc is second to none, and all are carefully chosen with comfort and luxury in mind.
We hope to see you back again for a longer stay and of course, all recommendations are well appreciated.

Very nice hotel, beautiful room. Service is great! I would definitely will stay in this hotel again. Only drawback is that my room does not have a nice view, I have the back view of the building. But it's ok :)

Dear HaryaniO,
Thank you for your great comments, we've very glad you enjoyed your stay at the International Hotel.
Regarding the view, we are a town-centre hotel, but we have approx 40 front-facing rooms which have great views of the world going by and the Jaunting cars and horses - a real Killarney sight - and these are extremely popular with our guests.
We hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in Ireland and hope to see you back again at another time,
Best regards

First visit to Ireland, and we loved Killarney. The hotel was great and awesome location. You could basically walk everywhere even though we already had a rental car. Only down side is no parking but it isn't very expensive and there is a lot nearby plus street parking. Highly recommend this hotel, very clean and comfy rooms & beds.

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.
