“Beautiful Hotel”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

Stayed here for 2 nights with Trafalgar tours. The hotel and rooms are beautiful. I had to change rooms due to an problem with the shower water pump. The staff was quick and very helpful to fix this problem, including moving my luggage. The hotel has been added onto and some rooms are very far from the entrance. Overall, it is very nice and in the heart of town. Very good breakfast.

Dear Jacqueline,
Thank you very much for your great review, we work closely with Trafalgar Tours who operate great trips and we have no doubt you had an excellent holiday through them.
We apologise for the slight problem with the shower but we're glad that it was sorted quickly and to your satisfaction.
We hope you enjoyed the remainder of your time in Ireland and had a safe journey home.
Best regards

Stayed here for two nights on a trip around Kerry. This hotel was fantastically located in the middle of Killarney town. We were delighted to have a complementary upgraded room. The room itself was large and luxurious. The staff were very friendly and helpful from the moment we arrived. This was a perfect hotel to explore the area from and to relax in the evening. I would highly recommend this accommodation in this lovely town.

Bed was extremely comfortable as room of a reasonable size. The shower was cold though and washing your long hair in cold water is a nightmare! However the Irish breakfast was lovely and staff were very accommodating . I asked for a mini version and I got it. Great location.

This was our second trip to the International this year. This hotel is one of a kind. From the moment you enter until you leave, the staff are polite, friendly and make your stay fantastic. We had dinner in the restaurant, which has a great selection to suit every taste. Food is great quality and good value. There was 7 of us with 4 rooms, no one had a complaint. All the rooms were bright and clean. They were spacious with extremely comfy beds and great bathrooms. Breakfast was perfect, great selection. The management and staff run this hotel very well, hence why will we return again.

Beautiful break away in Killarney, top class hotel. Staff, location, room quality excellent. This hotel oozes with quality and professionalism. It is is situated perfectly, jaunting cars across the way and just off the main street. The only thing I would be disappointed with, and it is only small, breakfast finishes at 10am weekdays, but the supplies are well run out from the buffet counter way before this and not replenished. I feel breakfast supply should be the same for the last person as for the first. At the same time you do not go hungry, love the fact you can order the hot food straight from the kitchen.

Dear Bridie,
Thank you for taking the time to review your recent visit with us positively, it is our wish that each and every guest has a pleasant and relaxing stay and we're glad this was your experience.
Just in regard to breakfast, yes we agree that the buffet should offer the same selection from start to finish of serving and we apologise if that was not the situation you found during your stay. I will raise the matter with our Restaurant Supervisor as this would not be the norm.
Overall however, we are very pleased you enjoyed your stay and we thank you for your wonderful comments on our hotel and staff who are our best asset.
With best regards

I have just come back from a long weekend in the International Hotel in Killarney. The service we received from start to finish in the International was exceptional, the staff from porter to front desk to waiting staff, cleaning staff, bar and restaurant staff throughout the whole hotel could not have been friendlier. I am not surprised this hotel is a favourite for our overseas visitors. The food for breakfast and for dinner was also excellent. Well done to all concerned and i would highly recommend this hotel for a friendly and homely experience.

Room Tip: Was with two other parties who had two separate rooms and all rooms were excellent, we were in room...
