“Lovely hotel in town”
Reviewed April 21, 2011

We stayed at the International Hotel as the hotel option through RailTours Ireland. The lobby is lovely with old world charm. Rooms and bathrooms are good size. The location is perfect to walk to town and dining. The staff was kind enough to set up a continental breakfast earlier than the usual breakfast start time so that we could meet our tour schedule.

Dear Margaret

Thank you for taking the time to review the International Hotel on Trip Advisor.
I’m delighted to hear you enjoyed our new room and bathroom. The feedback so far has all been very positive.
Regarding the breakfast, I’m disappointed you were not happy with the bacon and egg as I can assure you each breakfast is 100% fresh and cooked to order. This is the reason we have Served Breakfast as opposed to Buffet where food can get cold. I will forward your comments on to our Breakfast Chefs as all feedback is much appreciated.
Hopefully we can welcome you back to the International in the not too distant future where we can assure you your breakfast will be 100% fresh.
Kind regards

We stayed at the International over the weekend and I have to say that it was one of my most enjoyable weekend breaks in Ireland in a while...the hotel has a great location in the town with shopping, restaurants and pubs just 2 mins walk....ideal. Everything about the hotel, the bar, the restaurant and the staff was perfect, but it is the rooms that most impressed us...big thick memory foam mattresses.. duvets....jacuzzi bath....lots of little things I didn’t expect but that made the stay all the more enjoyable. I also liked the fact that the hotel has lovely character...not just big and modern like others. We arrived by train so the hotel was only a short walk away. We would definitly recommend this hotel to anyone. Only small compliant: no swimming pool but they had a gym and sauna and some sort of golf assimilator we did not use.

This was the last hotel that I booked for our trip, but it was for our first night in Ireland. I was looking for a convenient location with 2 affordable single rooms more than a great hotel. Luckily, I got both.

When we walked in the front door, the interior of the lobby was what I envisioned a hotel in Ireland would look like. It was not big, but it had a certain character, sort of a flashback to hotels of the first half of the 20th century. However, as I walked up the stairs and down the hall, I assumed my single room might be also out of time. I was very wrong. It was a very modern room, with a large, comfortable bed, a great view of the street with the mountains in the distance, a flat screen TV and a great bathroom. I will say that it set a standard that no other hotel matched on the trip.

The hotel is conveniently located on the edge of the city center. After dinner and a couple of pints at some nearby pubs, I got a very quiet night of sleep. The next morning, we were able to walk downstairs and enjoy a very good breakfast and then pick up our rental car from the Budget office (ok, it is very small, more like the Budget closet) that is next to the hotel entrance. From the hotel, it was very easy to get on the road to our next stop in Dingle. I would highly recommend this hotel and I will not hestitate to stay here again when I return to the area.

I stayed one night in this hotel and i wish it had been longer. The room was small but maximized the space available. It was very clean and cozy. The staff was very nice and accomodating. Check in and check out was very simple. The bed was incredibly comfortable. It was a welcome sight after 20 consecutive hours of travel. Only negatives: the toilet in my room was unusually close to the wall, which certain things difficult. Carrying luggage through the narrow hallways was a pain. There were steps and doors in the hall that made it a pain.

Dear Scottydawg66

Thank you for your kind comments on Trip Advisor. We are delighted you enjoyed your short stay with us.

The International Hotel is over 100 years old and while it has been completely refurbished many times, some of the old features remain which we feel adds character to the property. Also, the doors in the corridors are fire doors which are compulsory in Ireland.

Hopefully we wil have the opportunity to welcome you back at another time and thank you again for taking the time to review us.
Kind regards

This is a great hotel. Located right in the middle of Killarney. I would thoroughly recommend it to anybodt travelling to Killarney for business or pleasure. Although my visit was mainly leisure I had to do some work too but the facilities available made this whole process painless. High speed broadband meant my work was just as accessible to me as if I had been in the office. Furthermore, the food at the hotel was phenomenal. Both breakfast and dinner.

Spent two nights on a hen weekend in this hotel. Ideal location walking distance to all pubs and restaurants. Staff very helpful and friendly especially the night porter. A group of twenty one of us ate in the hotel food was lovely, service great again great value for money. Our rooms were recently renovated. One disadvantage is no hotel car park and no discount when parking in public car park.

Dear Gemma2312,

Thank you for your lovely comments on our hotel, we are delighted you enjoyed your stay and our new rooms .

Regarding the parking, due to our extremely central location, we don't have private parking but there are 3 car parks within a 3-4 minute walk which are very reasonably priced and secure.

We hope you all enjoy the Wedding and hope to see you back to the International again,

Kind regards
