Our family of three adults stayed in this hotel for three nights in early October. We had two small but very nicely decorated and extremely comfortable rooms. We were taking a Railtours Ireland 4 day trip and they had actually booked us into another hotel first because we had booked just a few days in advance and there was no availability at this hotel on this extremely busy week end. The other room was a nightmare and we luckily were able to get in touch with our most excellent and caring Railtours Ireland representative ,Eilish, and she was able to work a miracle and get us into the International. Our trip was perfect from that point!

The International is clean and well cared for, the staff friendly and accommodating. The location is central to everything. We were right around the corner from Deros Tours who opperated three of our four day long tours. The dining room is large and welcoming for breakfast with a fireplace and an adequate staff to get guests in and out without long waits. We did have to wait in line one morning for about ten minutes as two other tour groups had early departures but this was a very minor inconvenience and could happen anywhere. We also ate dinner on one occasion in Hannigans Restaurant and it was good.

Our room was on the street side and was quite noisy each night until the early hours of the morning so I would recommend asking for a room on the other side. Our son's room was on that side and while it was a little noisy it was better than ours. Killarney is a tourist town and was packed this particular weekend because of a race on Saturday. I had to sleep with headphones on. I believe it would be quieter during the week. But the convenience of the location made up for the noise.

We liked the International Hotel Killarney so much that we have already recommended it to friends. When we return to Killarney we will certainly book this hotel again!

Room Tip: Not on the street side if you need quiet to sleep!

Great stay in this beautiful hotel and very central in Killarney. Good breakfast served in a very classy dining room. Comfy bed so a good nights sleep. Had a meal there during our 2 night stay which we could not fault. Irish entertainment in the bar downstairs. A great stay. Would recommend.

The hotel has been completely renovated over the last few years - all bedrooms complete with luxury memory foam mattresses for a restful nights sleep - and we are very pleased with the results and the feedback we have been receiving.
Hopefully we may have the opportunity to welcome you back again in the future.
Kind regards

We stayed here for 5 nights during our vacation,and was one of our favorites. Our room was spacious, and very clean,and nicely decorated. The bathroom was more than adequate with a jetted tub! Front desk staff was very helpful. The hotel it self was beautiful and well maintained. Hannigans Pub was great for a pint or two. The breakfast was the best ever! The location was ideal,easy walking distance to pubs,shopping and restaurants.

We were on a tour and this hotel was the best location of all the ones we stayed at. There are stores both to the right and the left of the hotel for shopping. There is also a money exchange store a few doors away. We took a horse drawn carriage ride just a few steps across the street from the hotel. The carriage driver was very entertaining, informative, and very fun. The food was very good, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was nice as well, and I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel while in Killarney, Ireland.

The International Hotel in Killarney was everything we could have asked for -- very classy, spacious rooms, great bar downstairs with nightly live Irish music, right in the center of town so that we could walk to everything we wanted to do, great breakfast, and free wifi. Not only that, but this hotel is wonderfully historic in its own right, so it was pretty interesting to explore the hotel's library and public rooms. Definitely a great value for the money.

Thank you for taking the time to review the Internationl Hotel. We're very happy you enjoyed your stay with us. The hotel is over 100 years old, traditional in style as you mention with all modern facilities but great attention has been put into retaining its original features and little touches which make it unique.
We also feel we offer excellent value with competitive rates which we feel is important in these times.
We hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in our country and to see you again at another time.
