“A great place to stay.”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

We were very happy with our stay at this regal hotel.The grand old building has been lovingly restored.The rooms are big,clean and comfortable.The location of the hotel super it's right in the heart of this wonderful town.Hannigans pub provided a drink with traditional Irish music and the breakfasts were really good.

Dear Greg, thanks so much for your great review. You are quite correct in that the rejuvenation and renovation of the hotel has been a labour of love for our owner and the results and feedback have been fantastic. Many of the hotels original features have been maintained and restored giving the International its unique charm
We're delighted you enjoyed your stay with us and while we appreciate Australia is quite a journey, hopefully we may get to welcome you again at another time in the future
Kind regards

The staff in The International Hotel were so friendly...really welcoming. The food was very good and service always came with a smile! The accommodation was great, very comfortable and everything you need a room was there. Just a short stroll brought us to the Main Street in Killarney which is a lively location. There is loads to enjoy among all of the shops, restaurants and pubs with live entertainment to suit all tastes. We had such an enjoyable short break that we've already planned another to Killarney for later in the Summer and are looking forward to staying in the International Hotel again.

Very happy with this hotel. Great location right in the middle of the town and close to everything. Room seemed to be brand new - and while it was a bit of a walk - it was great. Fantastic staff - at check in / concierge etc. Well done Louise. Gym also very good. Overall great value for money and would go back.

Dear Martin,
Thank you so much for your lovely comments. We're very pleased you enjoyed your stay with us albeit for business..
We cant say for sure from your review what room you stayed in but all our rooms have been newly renovated in the last two years so they are all in excellent condition.
We also have a state of the art gym if you are in the mood for a work-out, which you seemed to be!
I'll be sure to pass on your kind comments to Louise and we hope to see you back again.
Best regards

Even though we had to walk through several hallways to get to our room, we were extremely pleased with our accommodations. The rooms were very clean, the bathroom was large with a jacuzzi tub. The best part was the night light that was under the sink! The staff were very friendly especially Frank the porter and Katherine in the restaurant for breakfast. The breakfast meal was very good and service was outstanding. The front desk staff were knowledgeable and helpful. We especially loved the outdoor terrace where we gathered nightly to review the days activities. The air conditioning in our room worked too well! We had to turn up the thermostat so we weren't so cold. It is centrally located in Killarney so you can walk to the many shops and pubs Killarney has to offer. I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone and we would surely stay again.

Dear Sally H,
Thank you so much for your great review, we're delighted that you enjoyed your recent stay with us.
All of the rooms in the section you describe and that you stayed in, were renovated just last Winter to a very high standard and we're getting great feedback on them.
Our Balcony overlooking the Horses and Jaunting cars is a great feature of the hotel, you can enjoy a drink or coffee which watching the world go by beneath and it is the perfect place to while away a Summer evening.
I'll be sure to pass on your lovely comments to Frank and Catherine and thank you for your commendations.
Wishing you a wonderful July 4th!
Kind regards

Staff were relatively friendly! Our room had no ac and the windows didn't open! It was so hot in our room that it was almost unbearable! Staff brought us a second fan- didn't help much! Leaving the door open was the only thing that helped! Breakfast was ok.. Same as anywhere else.. I'm giving this 3 stars because we had better service and a better experience at the B&B in Doolin! Also- wifi is horrible here!! So spotty!

Dear Billie S,
Thank you for taking the time to review us on Tripadvisor, we're just sorry that the experience was not entirely positive. That said, we appreciate all feedback as it helps us to improve our service to our guests.
We have been experiencing some extremely warm weather the last few weeks, very un-typical for Ireland and while approx. 50% of our rooms do have AC, the remainder do not and this is why we keep a plentiful supply of cooling fans available. Also most of our windows do open, the ones that do not are for security reasons, so I apologise if you found yourself in one of these rooms.
However we do thank you for giving us your feedback and hope that you enjoyed the remainder of your time in Ireland.
Happy July 4th!
Kind regards
Anne Marie Collins

The International Hotel was arranged for us by business associates and we were extremely happy with their selection.
On arrival the staff were very friendly and offered tips and information to help us enjoy our stay in Killarney. The room was spotless clean with very welcome tea and coffee available in the room. The water was hot and the sleep and comfort quality was excellent.

On arrival back to the hotel that night the hotel night porter was a very friendly gentleman, I think I recall his name as Tom, he happily served us a night cap and chatted jovially until we retired for the night.

The breakfast next morning was more than ample with a good choice of light food up to a full Irish, which would set you up for the day.

Overall our stay was very enjoyable and based on the comfort of the hotel and friendliness of the staff I would certainly stay here again and have no problem in recommending the International to anyone.
