“Lovely Room Great Rate”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Stayed in this hotel as part of group booking for Sat Night. Had a great rate for room only and we were all stunned at the beautiful rooms. The quality of the room was so unexpected in comparison with the rate we payed. Two comfy cosy single beds, table with queen anne style chairs, french style furniture and big en suite which was perfect for two women getting ready for a night on the town. We missed the bar food and were too early for the dinner menu, so we didnt get to eat here but there seemed to be a good number of people in the bar enjoying food on our arrival. All in all, a lovely stay and i would go back again.

Room Tip: Small Corridors so they have larger rooms, so maybe wheelchair access might be an issue, the halls w...

myself and my husband stayed on the saturday night of the long weekend. We had a wedding
in Killarney and read good reviews about the International Hotel. The hotel room was lovely
and spotless clean. The girl on reception was lovely and friendly. We checked out early
on the sunday as our home team Castlehaven were playing in the County Final in Cork.
We won the County Final so overall great weekend.

We hosted a party for our parents 40th wedding anniversary here. It was a tremendous success. The staff were so accommodating and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The staff did a wonderful job decorating the room and it looked fabulous. Dinner was served promptly and everyone freceived their courses together. The food was lovely and well presented. Many Thanks to Antonette and her great team.

This is a gem of a hotel in the heart of Killarney town - no need for a car as you are within walking distance to the shops,pubs, restaurants etc. Having said that, no need to leave this hotel at all except to explore the tourist sports like Muckross, The Lakes, Torc Waterfall.

The food is amazing - and plenty of it and reasonably priced and the bar is very lively with live entertainment...............

Every member of staff is extremely friendly and nothing is too much bother..............very warm hospitality all round.

Well done to all at this great hotel....................

Not my first time to Killarney, but first time staying at this hotel. Lovely, comfortable bedrooms in the heart of "downtown" Killarney. Beautiful modern bathrooms with large spa tub and shower. Free Wi-fi available. Walk to local pubs and shops. Stayed here as part of a tour group and the hotel staff was gracious, efficient and professional. The traditional Irish breakfast was delicious as was our dinner. Would definitely recommend this hotel. The International Hotel has been in the same location for many years - they have the photos to prove it in their charming study off the lobby. The adjoining pub had lively traditional music so we didn't have to go far for entertainment.

Dear Kathy,
Thank you for your very kind review of the International Hotel. The hotel is one of the oldest in Killarney - welll over 100 years- but has been completely renovated and modernised. We're very happy with the results as we feel we've managed to hold on to the traditional feel of the hotel with all its history and style. The Lounge you mention is a new addion last year and we sourced the pictures hanging there through the local newspaper and long-lost photos we found in an old store here!
I hope you enjoyed the remainder of your tour of Ireland and had a safe journey home and we look forward to welcoming you back at another time
