“The International Hotel - Killarney”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

This hotel and the service they provided were both top-notch. The staff, from the gentleman that hustled our bags to our room, to the dining room staff that greeted us each morning, to the lady cleaning our room who found a fan for us, were all outstanding. We have to mention someone who stood-out even more though - Katrina at the front desk. My wife forgot to pack a curling iron for our trip. The first night of our stay, I asked Katrina if she knew where we could go to purchase one. Katrina told us not to worry about it because she had an extra one at home that she would bring in the next morning. I went down to the desk at 7:30 the next morning and sure enough, Katrina was there with her usual smile and said here you go, and handed me the curling iron she had brought in. Now THAT is great, personal service. My wife and I highly recommend this hotel.

Dear Brian D,
We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay and thank you for praising our staff so highly - I will be sure to pass on your lovely comments to Catriona who is a valued long standing member of our team. Also we women understand the value of a curling iron when away from home and would not see another female stuck!
We hope to see you back again and once again, thank you for your lovely comments.
Kind regards

The staff at this hotel is very courteous and always helpful to guests. They are very friendly as well and asked us about our stay and about the things we were doing in Killarney. They seemed truly interested in us having a good time. Our room was clean, spacious, and modern. We had a fantastic stay and this was by far our favorite hotel on our Ireland trip.

Following recent re-refurbishment this hotel is superb. It also has the advantage of being in a town which is buzzing with music, ambiance and fun. As on all previous visits my wife and I found the hotel staff to be the most friendly, approachable, caring and helpful you will encounter anywhere. The hotel location is perfect for chilling out , visiting the local areas or used as a start of hill or park walks in one of the most beautiful parts of Ireland.
The food in the Hotel restaurant was superb and a special mention for the black pudding starter, wow!!!.
My wife got special attention by the restaurant staff and the chefs as she is Coeliac.
We highly recommend this Hotel.
Eugene, Dublin

Room Tip: The executive suites with the jacuzzi bath are superb.

We stayed at this hotel during a weeklong tour of Ireland. Several in our group thought this was by far the best hotel of the week. This hotel is in a perfect location for visiting this area. The food was superb. Staff was very helpful. We upgraded to an Executive Room. It was very spacious, bed was very comfortable, and it had a modern look. Overall, a very enjoyable stay.

I stayed at the hotel for four nights with my wife and daughter.
The Hotel is located very strategically with good access to eating joints.It is also very convenient
to undertake site seeing trips since the daily travel services providing these trips are located just next door where you do not waste time on pick up and drop and can just move out immediately after completing breakfast which was very good and the persons serving the same were very courteous.Overall the suite room provided to us was excellent with all amenities very spacious and good decor providing for an overall excellent experience and good value for money.

Hotel is in, probably, the best location in Killarney. Reception, porters and dining-room staff were all really nice and natural. Got great advice re walking in Tomies Wood from very nice lady serving breakfast. All in all a really nice place to stay.
