“Weekend in the beautiful International Killarney”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2011

From the moment we arrived the staff were friendly helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff at the International are first class and they made us feel like we were home from home. Highly recommend this hotel. Looking forward to returning to Killarney next year with my family.

We were there with a group. Nice clean room.Wifi was free. If you take an immediate left out of the hotel and go up the alley to the main street there will be a Spar on your right. Blanket on the bed rather than a duvet. I liked that. Dinner was very nice. In the am you could order a cooked breakfast.

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
