Staff very friendly and helpful, rooms are clean, great location. Staff helped us book day trips around Killarney with a great tour company. Would definitely recommend staying at the hotel to others and will be back next time we are in Ireland.

Spent a week-end on the 11th October in the International.This was the 5th time my wife and I have stayed in this hotel.As usual we were greeted like old friends by the staff who I must say are the best in the world.Our room 235 was beautiful .We dined each night in Hannigans bar.The food was first class as per usual. We were delighted with the new decor in the library and snooker room .Well done.I know (if God spares us) we will be back again in 2014 we usually visit Killarney twice a year.Many thanks to all the staff for making our stay as pleasureable as always.
Looking forward to our visit in 2014

Room Tip: All rooms that we have stayed in have been excellent

Great hotel and perfect location. Rooms are cosy and comfortable. Within walking distance of great pubs and shops. Just across from Kilarney National Park. Take a horse and cart tour, you won't be disappointed.

We loved everything about the International Hotel. Had European charm which complemented the town of Killarney. Hotel rooms were clean, well appointed and comfortable. Staff was welcoming and very helpful from recommending travel routes for our excursions to making restaurant suggestions. Would definitely recommend this hotel!!

While the hotel is over 100 years old and very traditional in style, it has been totally refurbished to a very high standard and the quality and comfort of our interior furnishings is always commended on.
Our team are always on hand to assist with advice and information and as most of us are local, we know our way around and we' re glad you found the tips useful!
So, again, we appreciate the time spent on reviewing us and we would love to see you back again at another time,

We stayed in the International Hotel in Killarney again in early October and we were not disappointed. We have stayed here quite a few times because we like the cosy and comfortable ambience in the hotel. The staff are so friendly and helpful and we enjoyed a lovely evening meal in the restaurant. It is such a relaxed yet efficient place to stay and we left feeling refreshed and wishing we could have stayed longer! The location is excellent too whether you want to walk through the National Park, take a ride in a Jaunting car or stroll around the town.

I stayed here at the start of October with 2 other friends and our stay was excellent from start to finish! All of the staff were very friendly and the staff at reception were especially helpful and friendly! The room was very comfortable and was extremely clean throughout. The location of the hotel is excellent, it is within a few minutes walking distance from the centre of the town. The only downside is there is no hotel parking but there are local public carparks nearby just a couple of minutes walk from the hotel. I would definitely recommend this hotel and will be returning again in the future.

Dear Fiona E,
Thanks so much for your lovely remarks on our hotel and team, we're delighted you and your friends enjoyed your recent stay with us.
Agreed, we don't have our own hotel car park, but we hope that our town centre location which is second to none compensates for this and in general, parking in Killarney is relatively in-expensive ( approx €6 per day) and not too difficult to find bar possibly a few weeks in July/August.
We hope we'll see you and your friends back again, and in the meantime thankyou again for your lovely review.
Kind regards
