Lovely staff, nice room. Decent food. Very good value for money. Very clean. Would definitely recommend this place. Only negative points were crap wifi and location is poor. Ideal for families. Overall, this is a great spot. Need a car or u will pay at least €10 each way into town each time.

My wife and I have just returned from a two night stay at the renamed Torc Hotel and were extremely impressed with everything. The room was large and very comfortable. The food was very good, with a great choice for breakfast. All the staff were friendly and gave 100%. We will definitely be returning.

Clean comfortable hotel with fast WIFI. Breakfast was delicious with eggs and Irish bacon (which is similar to ham in US). Live band played solid covers of American classics. Take Me Home, Country Roads was especially good.
