First time we've stayed in this hotel, the room was nice and cosy, perfect location in the city centre, close to the Killarney Racecourse. Had dinner in the restaurant, the food was delicious, lovely presented and big portions too! I'd like to mention Les from Poland, our waiter who made our dinner more enjoyable. He was very attentive, funny and... More

The international is very well located in the centre of town. The hotel has a lot of character. Rooms however are very small and not all of the have showers (baths instead). The hotel was busy and the staff at the front desk were polite but curt. They were not helpful. The staff at the breakfast restaurant and bar were... More

What a lovely, quaint hotel!! I am so pleased that our tour company booked us into this hotel! It had so much character and was not a cookie cutter big chain type of accommodation. The location was fabulous! Next to all the shops, restaurants and sights so we could walk. We stayed for two nights of our tour and were... More

I was traveling in Ireland as a backpacker. Got free upgrade to stay in a hotel in my tour. Yeah that's why i was staying in International Hotel Killarney for 3 nights. The room, the breakfast and the ambience surely lived up to 4-star standard. However, I didn't feel welcomed at the hotel when I first walked in and out... More

A great location in Killarney. The hotel is close to restaurants, pubs and parks, but quiet and peaceful at the same time. The rooms are comfortable and we enjoyed the breakfast in the morning especially the Irish cheese selections. The lack of onsite parking and not being able to stop in front of the hotel because of tour buses in... More

This is a small, but beautiful and well run hotel. The rooms were lovely and well appointed. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The restaurants are excellent. We asked several taxi drivers for suggestions on where to eat. They didn't know where we were staying but they all recommended Hannigan's, the hotel's restaurant. The prices were quite reasonable and... More

We had a great stay in The International. The room was lovely and very clean. All the staff were so friendly. We will definitely be back to stay in this hotel! The hotel is in a great location right in the middle of the town. We had a lovely meal in the hotel restaurant and breakfast was also very good.

Some rooms can be quite a walk from the stairs or elevator. The rooms themselves are decent sized but not large. Shower was very good with lots of hot water. On our arrival and departure there was only one porter available despite several bus loads of tourists coming and going. The breakfast service and choices were excellent. The staff was... More

Dear InspectorT, Thank you for your kind Tripadvisor response. The International is over 110 years old and as such is quite spread out, with many unique features and little nooks and crannies which we feel add greatly to the character of the hotel. Our rooms can vary in size from Classic rooms, to Superior and Executive our largest but all... More
