Like my Title states, you could go to Killarney and stay with family, or you could stay at the International Hotel and be treated like Royal Family. You are right smack dab in the middle of everything so if you have a rental it'll stay parked for your stay. You can walk to the forest, visit churches, do some fantastic...

We stayed there for New Year's Eve and loved it. Excellent hotel, elegant, professionally run and very clean. Our New Year's meal was fantastic, the waiters and waitresses were very attentive and considerate. We stayed in the bar to see in the new year, and even though they were rushed off their feet, the bar staff maintained a good humour...

As I said in the title, it is the staff at this hotel that make it so special. From the moment I rang them to book there was a friendliness and 'nothing is too much trouble' attitude.
