Reviewed June 25, 2013

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights while visiting Killarney in June 2013. I was extremely pleased with this hotel and so glad we had chosen it.
It is a lovely hotel right in the town centre, easily accessible to the shops and also to the bus tours of the area. We took the Ring of Kerry tour the one day and the required location for us to catch the bus was just around the corner from the hotel. We used a city lot for parking during our stay which was also nearby and very accessible. The hotel is charming. It has a beautiful lobby, lovely dining room, pub with live music, library and games room (pool table). We were able to obtain a room that accommodated 3 adults that included a single bed plus a double bed. The room was upscale, clean, spacious and nicely decorated. Hot breakfast was excellent. Staff were very kind and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Dear Douglas L,
Thank you very much for your lovely review.
Despite its many visitors every year, Killarney has managed to retain a real Irish feel and we think the International does too! We endeavour to employ as many local staff as possible to add to your experience and of course their familiarity with the area means they are a fountain of local knowledge!
We're delighted you enjoyed your time in Killarney and Ireland - it sounds like it was a sentimental journey for you and we hope to see you back at another time,
Kind regards

The Intn'l Hotel in Killarney was GREAT! Our tour company,Railtours of Ireland, made us a "standard" reservation without explaining that the room would not have air conditioning. We were fortunate enough to have bright sunny weather for the first day of our stay and it became quite hot which made our night very uncomfortable. The hotel took the responsibility to rectify the problem and moved us to an air conditioned room for the rest of our stay. They were also accommodating when we requested a sheet and blanket to use instead of their heavy comforters. Really a beautiful and welcoming hotel with very gracious and friendly staff. We highly recommend them. They are also very conveniently located to the Hop-On Hop-Off bus system and within walking distance of many of the attractions and Hueston train station is right across the street!

Dear Dancer46,
Thank you for your great report of the hotel, we genuinely do go the extra mile for our guests, it is our way of operating our hotel and we're always happy to help with any requests that are at all possible!
We do have AC in approx. 30% of our rooms, as you kindly mentioned it is not usually a pre-requisite of an Irish Holiday, but we were delighted we were able to oblige even so!
We hope you enjoyed the remainder of your visit to Ireland and we hope to see you back again at another time.
Kind regards

This hotel was arranged through IrishRail Tours and I couldn't be more pleased. We had a triple room for three women and it was very comfortable...we each had our own bed. It was a beautiful hotel and very convenient to anything in Killarney. You can walk anywhere. The breakfast was continental, but you could also order additional breakfast food if desired.

We spent three nights at the International while on a rail tours Ireland tour. It was a wonderful hotel. So clean with beautiful finishes in the room. We had double sinks in the bathroom, what a treat. Our room was very spacious and we had a cocktail hour every night with 6 of us in our room. Heated towel racks made the end of a shower wonderful. The staff were so friendly and helpful from the reception desk, to the man who walked us to our room. The staff in the restaurant were so polite also. Breakfast was wonderful every morning. The location of this hotel is great, you can walk to the National Park.

Room Tip: We were on the 3rd floor and it faced the parking area in the middle of the building, but it was ver...
