We stayed in the International hotel for valentines weekend, it brought back lot of memory's, as i had my wedding reception in the International hotel over 30 years ago.
We totally enjoyed our stay, the staff were very obliging, the freshly cooked breakfast is fantastic,dinner was delicious with a touch of personal class, the staff will ask are you ok? and is there anything else they can do for you? So i really admire the staff for their personal touch.
I have stayed in other hotels in Killarney, and it's self service for breakfast, and don't look very presentable to sit down to in the morning.
But you are assured at The International Hotel of top class food, top class service, the only thing i would recommend is a room up grade.

A very special thanks to Anne Marie keep up the good work, you know how to treat your customers. Joan.

Dear Mary1m,
Thank you so much for your wonderful review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your weekend with us. I understand the International was a hugely popular hotel for Wedding Receptions- coincidentally my own parents had theirs here too.
Regarding our cooked breakfasts, never fear - we get far too many compliments on them to consider changing and also we feel it adds a little extra to your break away to get your breakfast served to you. The International is all about service, it is our number one priority. We also appreciate your comments on our staff, thank you very much.
So, thank you again for sharing yout thoughts with us and we hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back at another time.
With best regards

Stayed in the international for a girls weekend last weekend. We had such a wonderful stay in the International I just had to give it a review.We were celebrating one of our birthdays. I had happened to mention this when booking so in each our room we had strawberries which was a lovely touch. A special mention of Anne Marie on reception who from the moment I had booked was just fantastic. We had two executive rooms which are just out of this world. The hotel is very central and is an ideal location to see all the sights of Killarney. Have to mention the staff from the bar staff to our waiters for our evening meal to the breakfast staff, just fantastic and made us feel so welcome. Our evening meal was great, the T- Bone is a must to try. The breakfast is served as against buffet and is one the best breafasts I have ever had. I will be def staying in the International every time I will be going to Killarney. Brillant break in a fantastic classy hotel with fantastic staff

We had a very enjoyable 2 nights weekend stay at this hotel. I would highly recommend this hotel based on my experience. This hotel offered great value for money on B & B rates, their breakfast had a wide variety of food available to suit all taste buds and the breakfast staff were always very friendly & good fun/natured. I found all their staff to be friendly and very helpful. Our room was warm, very comfortable, clean & spacious. The hotel itself is in the perfect location very central and easy walking distance to all amenities.

We hadn't booked accommodation and were debating pub over B&B when we happened upon the International Hotel in Killarney. We walked in to a lovely foyer, the rooms were clean and comfortable. The restaurant/pub in the hotel was great and breakfast very good. The location was very central. The only downside is lack of parking, which apparently is normal for Killarney near the centre of town. Very happy with our choice and more than we anticipated!

Dear Jenny_Sydney5,
Thanks for taking the time to review your recent stay with us, and we're very glad you stumbled upon us!
Parking is not generally an issue here except maybe for 4-6 weeks in the height of Summer when Killarney is very busy, it is really just a small drawback for our extremely central location in Killarney town.
We hope you enjoyed your time in Killarney and Ireland and thank you again for your lovely comments on our hotel.
Kind regards

Stayed in the International Hotel this year and had a very enjoyable 2 night stay there. I would recommend this hotel for their great service right from the moment youi walk in the door. It is in the heart of Killarney town which makes it so convenient for everything. Their staff are very accomodating on giving you information on all activies around the area. Breakfast has a range of great food and the bar at night, a great atmosphere. Would highly recommend this hotel for a stay.

As a regular business traveller I have stayed in many hotels in Ireland, This hotel has to be one of the best value hotels in Ireland. Not to say it is the cheapest but to say it is the value for money which is important. Perfectly located in the heart of Killarney, easy walking distance to all amenities, bars and restaurants. The staff are warm and courteous with a special mention to the breakfast staff......fabulous, a great mix of professionalism and humour.....hard to find these days.....plus the breakfast was 5 star!! It is refreshing not to have to queue buffet style for food. Rooms are very comfortable, well decorated, spacious bed and hot shower!!!

Dear Marky777,
Thanks for your very kind comments.
We are fortunate enough to have a large Corporate clientele who work away from home a lot, so our aim is to provide a good nights sleep in a comfortable bed, a hot shower and a hearty breakfast. We also feel it is important to offer value for money, so we're pleased that you agree.
We hope that we will be your hotel of choice in Killarney for your future visits and again, thank you for taking the time to review us, it is much appreciated
