International Hotel Killarney
Ranked #6 of 38 Hotels in Killarney
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 5, 2011

Not the first time we visited Killarney but our first time in the International. Staff were very helpful and friendly, especially the Cork gentleman who runs the restaurant. Food was very good, a varied selection and reasonably priced. We had an executive room, with a fairly delicious chocolate cake greeting us on arrival (plus marshmallows and chocolate sauce...nice). Room itself was grand, tv missing a remote, and one of the blankets on the bed had a distinct whiff of vomit (perhaps the previous occupant had a little person there..there was lots of spare bedclothes so it was fine in the end) but otherwise very comfy. Bathroom had a jacuzzi bath, which was (ahem) enjoyed by all. Only downside was the lack of an on-site car park..there are car parks relatively close by but it's not the same, having to pay and leave your car practically on the roadside. Otherwise, a thoroughly enjoyable trip to a beautiful county. Will return to the International

Dear Ian F,
Thank you for your review of the International Hotel.
We appreciate all guests comments as this is the best way for us to see how we are doing and we are very pleased that you enjoyed your time with us.
Parking is generally not an issue outside of 4-5 weeks in July and August when Killarney is extremely busy, a small drawback of our extremely central town centre location.
However, we are glad that you will return to us and we look forward to welcoming you back at another time.
With very kind regards
Anne Marie Collins

The hotel is excellently located right in the heart of Killarney town. The staff were excellent and we arrived early and a room was available and they checked us in straight away, and what a terrific room it was, spotlessly clean, well furnished and everthing we needed. The bar was lively and had music every night. Breakfast was delicious. Will definitely be back for sure and its a shame we couldnt stay longer... Thanks a million to all the staff for a wonderful two nights.

I stayed at this hotel for a weekend and when we arrived was concerned that there was no car park and we had to park on the street, there was ample street parking right beside the hotel with no cost. All my fears were alleviated when I walked through the doors, excellent customer service, good size room, flatsreen tv and good large comfy bed (standard room I was in). Excellent hotel, we were on the street side of the hotel and I thought the traffice, footfall would be noisy but couldn't hear a thing. Ever going to Killarney and want a good hotel at a very good price - this is the one for you !!

Dear Shorty186605,
Thank you for reviewing the International Hotel on Tripadvisor, we are delighted you enjoyed your stay with us. While the hotel is over 100 years old and very traditional in style, it has been totally refurbished to a very high standard and is very comfortable. We also offer some of the best value in Killarney as you very kindly pointed out.
We hope to see you back again at another time and in the meantime, thank you again for your positive comments.
Kind regards

Right in the center of things, across the street from the Park and just around the corner from city center. A great historic hotel that has been updated wit all the amenities one would expect. Nicely appointed rooms ans quiet.

Dear Piperkid,
Thank you for taking the time to review the International Hotel on TripAdvisor. 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.
As you mention, our location is amongst the best in town, at the entrance to the National Park but only around the corner from the town centre.
Hopefully we may have the opportunity to welcome you back at another time.
Kind regards

I recently stayed at the International Hotel as part of my Railtours Ireland package. All I have to say is what a great hotel. Amazing location as it was in the center of town. It was a minute walk to the main streets with pubs and shopping!

The hotel decor was a little older and not exactly modern but that was no concern as the room itself was great. We had a triple room which was huge! It was definitely the largest room I had seen on my whole trip in Europe. The rooms were clean and the beds were super comfortable. The bathroom was amazing! More than enough room for three women. The shower was great and there was even a towel warmer. We also had free wifi in the hotel and rooms which was a plus.

We did have breakfast included with our room and while it wasn’t the best breakfast ever, it was free and pretty good. The wait staff was great and attentive. There was also a restaurant and pub located downstairs. We did not go to the restaurant but we did go to the pub which was great. The staff there was extremely friendly.

Overall great experience. Would highly recommend and if I ever find myself in Killarney again I will be staying here.
