Dear Jason F,
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at the International on Tripadvisor.
I am sorry to hear on this occasion we did not meet your expectations. In particular, I am disappointed that you were let down by our breakfast as this is an area that is often commented on very favourably by guests and I have brought it to the attention of the Restaurant Supervisor.
Unfortunately, we do not know what room you stayed in during your visit to us but we have photos of a cross-section of our rooms online from Standard to Executive
We do however appreciate you taking the time to give us your feedback as this is the best way for us to monitor how we are doing and improve where necessary.
Kind regards

We had a couple of nights here over a weekend. The hotel is very nicely appointed and to more of a traditional than modern style. Our room was a very good size and had a lovely bathroom. The bed is very comfortable although there seems to be a tendency to overly thick pillows which is not to my taste.
The location in town gave us a great opportunity to eat out and have a few drinks in town rather than staying in the hotel the whole time. Afterall this is Ireland. This was why we chose this hotel over the Loch Lein Country House. Prices for each were almost identical.
Hannigans bar in the hotel is every bit as good as the reviews said and certainly a departure from the usual sterile hotel bar. We ended both our evenings in here after eating out in the town.
We had a bit of a problem with selfishly noisy neighbours in the early hours which the staff kindly offered to attend to. I still don't quite understand why hotel doors have to be designed to slam quiteso loudly I must confess.
All in all we enjoyed our stay despite a few hours of lost sleep.
Friendly and helpful staff certainly make you feel welcome.

Hannigans Bar is extremely popular with visitors and locals alike and we are delighted you enjoyed its ambience during your stay.
