“lovely hotel”
Reviewed 31 August 2014

We stayed here for four nights, with a coach tour. The rooms were very good, clean and quite big. My only complaint was that it was difficult to find a plug socket for the hair dryer that would allow me to get close enough to the mirror to dry my hair (finally found one inside the safe in the wardrobe !!!!!). The food was very good with a good choice and the staff were really friendly and efficient. This hotel is close to the shops and had live music in the bar every evening. A really good place to stay if you ever visit Killarney.

We had a wonderful stay in Killarney. The International Hotel is in a perfect location. The accommodations were lovely ans the staff helpful. I would definitely recommend staying here for your visit to Killarney- be sure to see the Ring of Kerry, Cliffs of Mohr, and partake in the joviality of the many pubs!!

Hello Linda and thank you for your wonderful comments on our hotel. There's certainly lots to see and do in Kerry and the surrounds and we're delighted you made the most of your time here. Killarney is an ideal base for its proximity to so many attractions and our own location in the town centre is second to none.
We hope wel'll get to see you back for another stay and in the meantime thank you again for taking the time to review us so positively.
Best regards

This place is absolutely lovely. The beds are very comfy and the bathrooms are huge. Great water pressure too. It has a classic feel to it. The rooms are well appointed and it has air conditioning. The front desk staff was friendly and knowledgable. I highly recommend!!!

Dear MadSnowDog,
Thank you for taking the time to review us so favourably.
The international is over 100 years old and you are quite correct in that we have strived to maintain the old-world elegance and charm of by-gone days in our decor and style, retaining much of the original elements of the hotel. That said, we are thoroughly modern in our facilities and service to ensure our guests the best of both worlds.
We're delighted you enjoyed your stay and hope if you return to Killarney, we will be your hotel of choice again,
Kind regards
Anne Marie Collins

I came with a friend to visit my family and took time out to go on a couple of tours and spent one night at your beautiful hotel. So near to shops, enabling me to purchase some gifts in the short time we were there. The ambiance in the hotel bar/lounge was great. Room perfect and very comfortable, Enjoyed lovely meals at dinner and breakfast and I congratulate your staff on their excellent service across the board. Pauline-South Australia

Room Tip: If the other rooms are as nice as mine I have no doubt one would be very pleased.

Dear Pauline,
Thanks so much, we're very glad you enjoyed your stay with us and we're just sorry it was not for longer - there is no much to see and do in Killarney that one night is not enough- as you discovered yourself.
Hopefully next time you will get to spend more time with us and in the meantime, thank you for taking the time to review your stay so warmly,
Best regards

Stayed in this hotel 7 years ago and it was not too bad. Decided to give it another go as the location is great for walking into Killarney town - 1 minute from the main street. We were lucky to find a parking spot at the front door (hotel does not have parking) and check in was quick enough. Our room was on the first floor and facing the road and the jaunting car stand but there was no problem with noise from the street. The hotel has obviously been refurbished since I last stayed there and generally it was in good condition and clean. Everything we needed was in the room, decent TV, wifi, etc. There are long narrow corridors with a few steps up and down at various places but this is not really a problem.

We were on a dinner, bed & breakfast package and it was reasonably priced - August is a busy time of the year in Killarney and so there were no hotel bargains to be had. Food quality was fine, as was the service. Live music in the bar and volume was controlled and so no annoyance was caused to us in our room.

Would stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for a front facing room, though they may be not be so quiet.

We spent two nights here as part of a Trafalgar tour. It's a beautiful hotel that has been updated, yet still has a lot of charm.
Our room was excellent. It didn't have air conditioning, but a fan was provided. The reception and restaurant staff went out of their way to make our stay even more enjoyable.

Room Tip: Some rooms have air conditioning, so ask for that when you check in if the weather is warm.

Dear Kristy,
Thank you for your fantastic review of your stay, we work closely with Trafalgar Tours who operate great holidays and who use only top-class hotels. All our team here work as one unit to ensure all our guests a relaxing and enjoyable stay and we're very glad this was the case with you.
Regarding AC approx 50% of our rooms have it, and we have plenty of cooling fans available. This Summer has been much warner than usual ( and very enjoyable for it) but as a rule AC is seldom required in our country.
We hope you enjoyed the remainder of your time in Ireland and left us with many wonderful memories,
Best regards
