This a lovely hotel set in the centre of killarney. We arrived on sat night at around 6.30pm and stayed in a room on the second floor. The rooms are quite small compared to other hotels and the only downfall I would have to say is when people are walking along the corridor you can hear them in your room, the walls are very thin so you can hear everything. Also we had a problem with our heating on arrival the radiator wasnt working we had to ring down to reception a few times and John the porter came up and tried to sort it out. It took a few attempts but 1 hour and a half later they sorted it out for us. John the porter was so lovely and is clearly an asset to this hotel. He couldnt have done enough for us bringing us a heater etc. So well done John and thanks from the girls from Cork.
I would recommend this hotel as it is so central and it is so clean. Also the rate was excellent for a hotel in the centre so I would return to the hotel.

Dear Jodie16,
Thank you for your mostly very positive review of the International, however we do apologise for the issue with the heater which has been resolved and I will be sure to tell John that you commended him so highly.
We are also upgrading the insulation between rooms this winter.
We are however pleased to hear that you would return to us and if you do get the opportunity I would appreciate if you could contact me directly to make your booking as I would like to offer you an upgraded room.
Many thanks and we look forward to seeing you back again,
Kind regards

This is a beautiful and clean hotel. It's clear they've updated and care for their furnishings. Two lovely reading rooms on the first floor. Helpful and welcoming staff. We got to stay on the first floor with a window overlooking the street/roundabout. We enjoyed dinner at the connected restaurant one evening. Free wifi in the room. The only place (out of three hotels) we stayed in with an alarm clock. Close to Killarney National Park! Wonderful place.

Dear Jake,
Thank you for your lovely review, we appreciate you taking the time to write it.
You are totally correct in saying that the hotel is traditional in style, over 100 years old, yet still retaining most of the original features and details which you kindly commented on.
We also appreciate your comments on our food and service and I'll be sure to pass this on to our Restaurant.
Hopefully we may have the opportunity to welcome you back at another time.

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.
