“Great hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

We stayed here for two nights and my only complaint is that I wish we could have stayed longer! The hotel itself was charmingly decorated, the hotel staff was friendly and inviting, and the room was very comfortable. It was conveniently located to the myriads of shops and pubs in the town center. One of the staff, John, was extremely helpful in getting us settled when we first arrived. Wonderful experience here and I hope our travels will bring us back!

Dear Ausweis,
Thank you for your lovely review, we're so pleased you enjoyed your time with us. Killarney is a charming little town, with lots of side streets and lanes to explore and plenty of coffee shops and pubs to meander into.
I'll be sure to pass on your kind comments to John and of course, you are more than welcome back to the International Hotel at any time!
Best wishes

Dear LynnvL2289,
Thank you so much for your lovely comments.
We are a little disappointed and surprised however that you found the breakfast staff a little unfriendly as going by many TA reviews, this is an area that rates very highly. it's often commented that the ladies in our Breakfast Room have a very 'Motherly' approach!
Nonetheless, we're so glad you enjoyed your time with us and of course, we'd love to have return again to the International and Killarney.
With best wishes

I had cause to visit Killarney to attend a funeral and choose to stay at the International. I was made to feel very welcome indeed. On arrival my room was not ready however I was offered a coffee which was very welcome after an early start! I was given a room in what appeared to be a recently refurbished part of the hotel. The room was large, clean and very well appointed, just what I needed. Breakfast was excellent. Bar staff, in fact all staff, were very friendly. I cannot recommend the hotel highly enough. I will definitely be back with my family.

Great food, nice bar, staff were very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Perfect location also practically in the centre of town. Rooms are comfortable and spotless. Shower could do with a little more water pressure but that's just a very minor detail.

We arrived to find a beautiful hotel that was clean, well decorated (classic elegance), and had a friendly, polite, and helpful staff. We had two rooms; one was larger and nicer in appearance than the other - but we found both acceptable. Our room a view to a courtyard where construction was underway; but this was not something that was the fault of the hotel. The courtyard property was not hotel property.

The restaurant and bar where also decorated with a classic look and were well kept. Again, the bar and restaurant staff were friendly, helpful, and accommodating. My family and I most enjoyed the "Resident's Lounge" with two absolutely beautiful living room areas (one with a fireplace) and an adjoining pool room with mahogany walls. One of the walls in the pool room was decorated with floor to ceiling plaques that gave all of the different PGA players who had won tournaments over the years.

The outside of the hotel faced across the street from the "jaunting horses" and a park. Down the street either way, you found good restaurants, shopping, and other hotels. We absolutely loved the city of Killarney.

Room Tip: Higher floors may have better views.

Dear Leslie,
Thank you for your brilliant review. You remark frequently on the quality of décor and furnishings and the cleanliness of the hotel which we're delighted with and which are both very important to us.
The International, while over 100 years old has been renovated with only the highest standard materials, all for the enjoyment of our guests experience with us.
We're delighted you enjoyed your stay and Killarney so much and we hope to see you again at another time.
