Loved the Internationalfrom Lorryman
Location has advantages and disadvantagesfrom Godwit
Located right in the centre of things means that it is really easy to walk to the shops, restrauants etc but the downside is that it can become very noisy. A large number of the rooms, including ours, looked out over a pedestrian way between the Killarney main square and the new cinema complex opposite. This seemed to be a meeting place for the party-goers and it was boisterously noisy every night until about 4 am. The double glazing is not of high quality, and we had to keep the window closed (no air con) so, what with the noise and heat, we did not sleep terribly well.
We wern't the only people at breakfast that had had disturbed nights!
I think most of your previous reviewers must have stayed in the quieter rooms (there are a number that look inwards) because the noise levels are a very marked feature of this hotel.
Apart from that the public areas are smart, service was good and the staff friendly.
If you like late night partying and do not have your own transport then this is a good city-centre hotel. If you want to go to bed at midnight because you are going on tours in your own car, you should look elsewhere.
Great Hotel.from gabirds
This hotel has class, combined with a friendly atmosphere, helpful staff, bar and restaurant. Within walking distance of Killarney national park, shopping, restaurants, pubs and station.
We parked right outside the hotel, although there are only a dozen spots, but we never had a problem and the hotel was full.
There is plenty to see and do for three or four days here, although we found a car a necessity to get the most out of our stay.
We would definitely stay here again.
No Room to swing a Catfrom A TripAdvisor Member
We then went to our room - when I opened the door I could not believe my eyes the room was so small (We had booked a Jazzui suite which was costing us €170.00 per night)
There was a small standard size double bed and single bed in the room - tea and coffee making facilites and an iron and ironing board in the coner along with the oldest wardrobe I had ever seen. That was it - oh there was a protable tv on a high stand which was a neck strain to seen from ground level.
Our bedroom window which was very small looked out onto the hotels back yard - where they kept all there stock- not a nice view, especially when it was the hotest weekend of the year. The rooms vere so warm and there was no air conditioning. The old fashion wall paper around the window had fallen off and there was dust everywhere.
The only nice part of the room was the bathroom - there was a lovely double shower and jazzui, but it still was very small.
Hanigans bar was very nice and we enjoyed the music there. We eat in the restaurant on the Saturday night and the food there was out of this world.
The only thing I can say is visit the International for food and drink, but dont stay there unless you see your room first. I would not stay there again if I was put in the same room The International hotel would have gotten alot of business from my family nad friends as one of my sisters had recently moved to kerry and we visit her once a month.

The added extrasfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel was lovely, the room was alot larger than I was expecting and the beds were very comfortable. I found the hotel extremely clean and very traditional. We had dinner on the sunday in the hotel for mothers day and the waitress surprised us by presenting my mother with homemade chocolates which I thought was an extra special service. The food was fantastic, a large selection which caters for all tastes. My mother is diabetic and normally this can be a problem when eating out but the hotel cater for all special requirements.
The hotel is very traditional, it is about a hundred years old and you get the impression of comfort and elegance. The stairs in the foyer are fab and must be seen. The fact that this hotel is in the very heart of town is great as my mother cannot walk far and we had everything, shopping, sightseeing even jaunting carts, right on the doorstep.
This is a fabulous hotel and I would recommend it to everyone.
