Reviewed 3 weeks ago

A great place to stay in Killarney. Great location and a comfortable, clean, yes "cozy" room. Excellent pub and restaurant right next door. Access to room did require some stairs and no parking on site but nothing we couldn't manage. Had a pleasant stay and would stay again.

Great location for going around Killarney. Hotel was clean, the staff was helpful. You do have to navigate a few steps even with the elevator. You can catch a horse carriage just across the street for Ross Castle. You can book a bus trip for the Ring of Kerry just around the corner.

This was one of the best hotels I stayed at during my trip around Ireland. The rooms were affordable, clean, maintained, and felt new despite the old-fashioned feel of the establishment. It was also just around the corner from the downtown area, but not in the middle of everything should you want something quieter. Paid budget price, felt almost luxury.

My husband and I stayed at the International Hotel for four nights. We cannot say enough about this hotel. The staff was friendly and hardworking. The room was spotless; the bed comfortable. We enjoyed relaxing in the sitting rooms. The lobby decor was elegant. The (included) breakfast was wonderful -- an extensive buffet plus a selection of hot dishes. The...

My wife and I stayed two nights here on our trip through Ireland. It is centrally located. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The room, while a bit small, was comfortable and clean. The bed is the best we've slept in thus far on our journey. If there is a down side, and this applies to many hotels in...

Dear Steve, Thanks so much for the great feedback, it was our pleasure having you stay and to hear that you enjoyed your time with us.
