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

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.

Stay at this brilliant hotel for two nights with my sisters. Location is brilliant. Rooms were excellent. The staff were really nice, from the lovely reception staff, the restaurant staff and housekeeping staff. They all worked hard to make our stay enjoyable. I would highly recommend this hotel. Will be back next year again.

We had a wonderful, large, three person room and felt very comfortable. The food in the dining room and the wait staff were also kind and helpful. We were traveling with a 91 year old with limited mobility so people should know that the tub is not accessible, despite a handrail, and steps needed to be negotiated to reach both... More

Lovely atmosphere and furnishings and great, helpful personnel!!!! Nice breakfast, and very accommodating staff when we needed an early breakfast one morning. Lovely room with comfortable bed! The only shortcoming is the shower. We had low water pressure, plus the strange half glass barrier did not stop spray from getting on the bathroom floor. And who thought of the idea... More

Dear Los Pancheros, Thank you very much for taking the time to give your thoughts on your recent stay with us, we're very glad you enjoyed it. We're sorry however that our shower let us down slightly and for this we apologise. The protective glass shower-door you mention is standard size in Ireland - I agree they can appear short... More

The International was lovely and we had very pleasant stay in spacious rooms, impeccably clean and very comfortable bedding. The hallway is a bit of a long labyrinth to the rooms, but they are so pleasant. The morning dining staff was particularly kind and helpful. We loved the location with all the town highlights within a 5 - 10 minute... More

Dear AlexSwimmer, Thank you so much for your great review of your recent stay, we're delighted you enjoyed your time with us. Yes, our hotel is a little spread out due to the age of the building - but we like to think that this makes us that bit unique as we have incorporated little sitting areas etc into the... More

We stayed two nights of our ten in Ireland and this was by far our favorite hotel. From the friendly staff that checked us in and helped us plan our day even suggesting a great lunch spot a block or so away to the beautiful room that had all the comforts of home including a jacuzzi tub. The room was... More
