This is a classic old Ireland type hotel. The room small, but very comfortable. Breakfast is very good and there is a conference style room on the second floor where you can read or pass through to get onto a nice balconied area. You can walk 3 blocks to the train or bus station and just around the corner is...

This hotel has so much character and steeped in history in this fantastic town. It has a lovely welcoming atmosphere and the staff are friendly, unimposing but very helpful. A hard thing to do but it is them that makes the place memorable. Hard to fault.

Picked this hotel as an upgrade on our tour package. Parking is a little tough, only on the street or in a lot which is walking distance away. The hallways are interesting, sheets are scratchy. Don't stay above the lounge...very loud til very late.

If you are looking for a beautiful, close-to-everything, clean and friendly place to stay, stay at The International Hotel Killarney!!! The beds were super comfortable, it's literally in the center of everything, and the staff, especially Marie. She made our reservations for an excellent Dingle Peninsula tour! We will definitely be back!

My review is late. We spent two nights at the International Hotel at the beginning of September. We were in Ireland for three weeks and this was one of our favorite places. The staff was superior in every aspect. More businesses in the hospitality industry should strive to reach this level. The room was exceptionally clean, and the bed was...

Located in the downtown area, International is a good sized hotel. A bit older, it has a good amount of charm. The rooms are very good sized for a European hotel. The best part is the service provided by the staff, warm and friendly Irish hospitality. A note: We were one of many groups staying there, which can be a...

My husband and I have stayed here twice in the last 3 years. We love this hotel. Lovely and a taste of elegance that is still affordable for a few days. Ideally located and full-service from a diligent staff. Immaculately kept with a great restaurant, a pub, a coffee shop...We love it!
