We stayed at this hotel as a base when we treated our mother for her 80th birthday ,as a party of nine.This gave us the opportunity to see various rooms. The hotel is spotless and extremely well maintained. We dined in the restaurant every evening and tried most things on the menu. The food was excellent also at breakfast. The staff were all pleasant.

Dear Sam,
Thank you for taking the time to review the International Hotel on Trip Advisor.
We are delighted you enjoyed your stay with us. All our rooms have been renovated over the last few years to a very high standard and we endeavour to offer excellent value for money without compromising on quality in these difficult times.
Just one thing about the parking, you can pay per day in the car parks in one go, approx €6 and while no-one wants to get a parking ticket, this is the worst that will happen you - there is no clamping in Killarney and the car parks are very safe - just information for your (hopefully) next visit!
In the meantime, thank you again for your wonderful comments and we hope that your girlfriend has a very enjoyable stay in Australia

I booked a romantic getaway for me and my girlfriend before she went off to Australia for 6 months, I booked one of the deals listed on their website. It was brilliant! Brand new room, which was a huge suite as part of the deal, my girlfriend didn't want to know how much I had paid judging by the room but the deal was actually very reasonable especially for what we got! I couldn't have asked for a better getaway.

One piece of advice for future guests: the hotel doesn't have it's own car park but there is a public car park behind the hotel. It's free at night but you have to pay during the day. Just make sure you set an alarm and have plenty of coins to go and feed the meter, if you forget you could get clamped, not that being stuck in killarney would be such a bad thing.

Room Tip: The deals are brilliant, check them out on the hotel's website. Also if you book direct with the...

From the moment our tour group was dropped off we were all ooohing and ahhhing! It was evening and the topiaries at the entrance was lit up with lights. The entrance in black and gold was gorgeous. We walked into this amazingly decorated lobby with majestic staircase. All reds and golds like a small palace. I spent one night in the library with a book and a tray of hot irish tea and the best homemade scones with butter and jam. Yummy.
Down the hall is the billiard room decorated in rich heavy wood panelling with a cozy sitting room and blazing fire. It was like being in a hunting lodge.
My room was immaculate. Pure white linens and so comfortable. Everything was amazing. I loved my small round table and chairs where I enjoyed my complimentary tea set every night.
The staff are warm and so helpful. They truly appreciate American tourists.
Breakfast was amazing! A combination of hot and cold.
If you want dinner you better make reservations early! I learned the hard way.
I loved the pubs and the shopping in this town. It was my favorite stay of the 8 days I spent in Ireland.

Dear Artchik816,
Thank you so much for your wonderful, warm review of the International Hotel. We think you should maybe do our PR for us!
However in seriousness, the hotel is over 100 years old and while it has been fully renovated, we have endeavoured to keep all the original features and little touches which make it unique along with incorporating all the moden facilities expected. We are delighted with the feedback we have been receiving on our rooms and all public areas, not to mention the food and our staff.
We hope you enjoyed the remainder of your time in Ireland and again, we thank you taking the time to review our hotel.
Kind regards
