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...

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!!

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... More

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.

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,... More

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... More

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.

Granted we stayed during a warm time of year but the solution for cooling down a boiling hot room is NOT to tell any guest to open the window, and then open the door to get a cross breeze. UNSAFE, two women traveling together, and the window had construction scaffolding directly outside of it and USELESS as the window only... More

Dear Carrie991, Thank you for your recent review and for your kind compliments on our staff.

We just loved how friendly the staff were. Will definitely stay there the next time we stay in Killarney. The food was second to none and I simply cannot wait to go back there. They also gave great advice on what to do in the area.
