The International was a great experience which is right in the town. The hotel room was fantastic & the staff were friendly. On arrival, we enjoyed good food in the restaurant & a pint in the bar. I will definitely be going back. Killarney was a great place to start the New Year.

Just spent a lovely night at the international hotel in killarney. The staff and hotel itself absolutely fabulous and location as central as you can get in killarney. We had a noise issue in our room but I felt same handled wonderfully and very professionally therefore would have no hesitation returning to this hotel.

I had a room of my own which was beautifully decorated and comfortable. I received beautiful chocolates on the bed when I arrived and this extra touch makes a difference.

What a friendly cosy hotel located in the centre of town so convenient to all attractions. I love Killarney in January. The extraordinary colors of winter on the mountains and lakes and no better base than The International Hotel. Staff couldn't have been more helpful right throughout our weekend stay.

Stayed there on a Saturday night, so parking wasn't a problem as we could park on the street for free on Sunday. The room and hotel was nice. The breakfast was good also, but I had some better hotel buffets in Ireland. The hotel restaurant is popular, so I recommend reservations if you want to dine there and not have...

A fantastic weekend as always and got an upgrade which we didn't expect. The staff are all brilliant and nothing is any trouble to them. The food is super as i am a coeliac and milk intolerant, they always fit around what I can have. We highly recommend this hotel and wouldn't stay anywhere else.
