From the moment I walked into this hotel I was pleased. Everyone went out of their way to help. The room was great. The food was terrific. The people that hauled baggage to our room gave us information we needed and answered every question. Treated like royalty.

Clean, quiet, comfortable. Convenient location. Old world charm in a historic building, but completely updated with modern amenities. Separate shower and whirlpool bath in the modern bathroom. Tasty breakfast options. Friendly and helpful staff.

My husband and I recently went to Ireland for his 50th birthday. Our stay at this hotel was fabulous.

The International Hotel could rest on it's laurels given it's fantastic location in the heart of Killarney. But it doesn't. The staff were consistently courteous and cheerful, the room both modern and classic and the food excellent. We road tripped all over Ireland and this was our favorite hotel by far.

Just home from another great stay at the International. Food in the bar continues to be of a v.good standard and is keenly priced. My single room was very well presented and the breakfast this morning was excellently prepared - none of this buffet nonsense. Service was great as always and this is what sets Killarney apart in my view.
