Stayed last August (9-13th).. three adults and one newborn in one of the executive family rooms. Check-in was very pleasant and reception staff professional. The room was beautifully furnished and very large. My only small criticism being there was no natural light, not a biggie as we were out all day every day. Bathroom had jacuzzi bath and shower. Housekeeping were in attendance, however, we declined due to COVID and requested towels to be left each day. Housekeeping staff were very pleasant and accommodating. We were lucky as the weather was beautiful in Killarney during our stay, so were able to dine outside on one of the evenings. Food was good. Staff under a lot of pressure as extremely busy. Breakfast in this hotel is AMAZING. In all our travels, we’ve never tasted a breakfast so delicious. (Cooked to order). The dining room was also extremely busy during the morning rush, but there was a lady (sorry can’t remember her name) who overseen residents being placed at tables etc. She was incredibly lovely and extremely professional, a real credit to the hotel. Bar staff and waiting staff were all very pleasant. The cocktails are a must. The International has a real old Irish charm to It. It really is beautiful. We loved it so much, we are planning a trip back again this July (travel restrictions permitting!)

The room we got did not reflect what’s been advertised on the web page. Very old fashioned room even though we paid for a deluxe room the standard was disappointing. I complained but it was badly handled by the management. They wanted to justify what was a bad experience. The receptionist on the other hand was extremely helpful during our stay. It’s a real pity as the hotel is in a great location and has huge potential.

Dear Brian, Thank you for taking the time to review your experience with us, we are only disappointed that it was not more enjoyable. Unfortunately, from your detail above, we cannot ascertain your room number or date of stay. We would like to discuss further with you if you could contact me directly as our genuine wish is that each guest has an enjoyable and relaxing stay. In the meantime, we would just like to note that the style of the International is old world to align with its age, taste is subjective so one person's old fashioned is another person's traditional. We only make this point as there are no rooms older than 7-8 years here, they are constantly updated on a rolling basis. I do hope to hear back from you and regardless, we thank you for your feedback which is all valid and important to us, Kind regards Anne Marie Collins

Great location in Killarney. The hotel itself is lovely with clean, comfortable & large rooms. The food is very good with plenty of gluten free options however you need to ask as they are not on the menu. The staff were really friendly (one guy in particular, I cannot recall his name, sorry!) I would stay here again. The hotel does not offer parking but there are large car parks nearby. My only complaint would be the noise from other rooms at night. We did raise this with the night staff who sorted this issue out on the two occasions we complained.

Dear BG0000 Thank you for your very kind feedback on your recent stay, we are delighted that you enjoyed it and found all our facilities so good and our team so helpful and accommodating. Great also that you had an opportunity to dine in our Hannigans Restaurant and found our standards equally high there with plenty of Gluten Free options. We’re delighted to read that you would stay again, and we would just request that you contact us in advance to request a quiet room. Yes, due to our town centre location some areas within the hotel are quieter than others and we are always very happy to oblige such a request. Once again,we thank you for your kind feedback and we look forward to welcoming you back.. Kind regards Anne Marie Collins
