Just got back from staying 3 nights at the International Hotel in Killarney, Co Kerry. Our stay there was great.. clean rooms, friendly staff and delicious breakfast each morning! The hotel is conveniently located right in the middle of town and is close to great pubs, restaurants and other attractions such as Ring of Kerry tours and the National Park. I can't wait to stay there again soon!

My wife and I stayed at this hotel while visiting Ireland. We found this hotel to be just what we thought an Irish hotel would be like. From the moment you walk into the lobby you just feel like you are home. The hotel makeup is sort of like a maze though, the way you have to go up steps then down steps then around corners to find your room but it every amusing. Our room was remarkable, we had a jacuzzi tub with a separate shower and heated towel rack. We almost didn't want to leave our room. The only downside was that there was no air conditioning in our room and no ice machines on any floors but you could get a bucket of ice from the bar. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful, the bar was very old Irish like but the breakfast buffet left a lot to be desired. The hotel is in a great location for walking around the town and if you would like a horse drawn carriage ride they are parked right across the road from the hotel. Overall this is a great hotel to stay at and we highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the executive rooms

Dear JTown2014,
Thank you so much for your lovely review. Your description of the hotel and layout is very accurate in that we aim to preserve a typically Irish and Traditional feel, while offering the best of modern facilities.
We're delighted you enjoyed your room and Jacuzzi bath - they do offer a nice touch of luxury after a busy day sightseeing. Regarding air conditioning, we have it in around 50% of our rooms, but it is so seldom required in Ireland that many hotels- bar the very new ones- have none at all.
Fans are freely available though.
Our Irish breakfast is almost always remarked on extremely favourably, as our Buffet area is very well stocked and the hot breakfasts cooked to order so I am sorry you did not find this to be the case. However I cant really comment any further as I do not have enough details...
That said all feedback is important to us and we thank you for taking the time to give us ours,
With best regards
Anne Marie Collins

Just back from weekend staying in International Hotel. It's a beautiful hotel in heart of town close to everything right beside National Park. Spotlessly clean the Executive room was great. Staff really friendly and food lovely. Only downside is parking. Town hotels don't appear to have parking so have to park in main car parks at 1 Euro per hour. Need to be there at 8.30 every morning to put money in but apart from that great place to stay

Room Tip: Executive rooms are great

Dear Joyce,
Thank you for your lovely comments on our hotel and your stay, we're so glad you enjoyed it.
Just a small point about the parking, you can pay in advance for the morning parking, so you don't have to be out in the carparks until well after your breakfast.
Like all towns and cities now, parking is limited right in the centre but it is not that difficult outside of 6 weeks in July/August - Killarney's busiest period.
We hope to see you back to us again and in the meantime, thank you again for taking the time to review us so positively,
Kind regards
Anne Marie Collins

Nice hotel in the heart of the city and adjacent to the Killarney National Park and an easy walk to the Ross Castle. The room was spacious and comfortable. The food was average and restaurant staff seemed harried.

Dear kcnipper,
Thank you for your very kind review, we're very pleased you enjoyed your stay with, if a little surprised that you found the food to be 'average', as this is an area where we always score very highly and our Hannigans Restaurant is extremely popular, particularly with locals and rates highly out of over 100 restaurants in Killarney on Tripadvisor.
However all feedback is valuable to us and we appreciate you taking the time to give it.
We hope you enjoyed the remainder of your holiday in Ireland and we hope to have you return to us again.
With best regards

We had a two day stay at this hotel. What a great hotel, the staff were exceptional and friendly from the Cleaners, to Bar Staff, to Restaurant Staff and Reception staff had a wealth of knowledge of the area and great locations to be visited in the Kerry area. Our rooms were in the Executive Section and were big with a comfortable bed and bedding and the area was exceptionally quiet at night, which was great, a perfect night's sleep. Breakfast was served in the dining room and the selection of food was excellent from both the buffet and a choice of hot foods. Again the staff at breakfast were extremely friendly and service was top class. The only disadvantage to this hotel is the parking but there is a car park a few minutes walk away but during the day, there is an hourly rate. Overall this is a fantastic Hotel in a perfect location and I would highly recommend it
