The Darby O'Gill's now called Torc Hotel is located outside of the town centre of Killarney. It took us a while to find the hotel but the owner put a sign on the main road to lead the way. I was surprised about the rooms. They have fully refurbished all of them and they are very modern and clean. The... More

We stayed in this hotel before, January 2013 and had a not pleasant stay. You can read back on my review on here. Darby O'Gill has now changed to the Torc Hotel and be rest-assured, what you write here is not just read by Management but also taken on board which I find, not many hotels are doing. After my...

Stayed here in August 2014. Wasted an incredible amount of time finding it due to name change and misleading advertising. Management is well aware of this issue but do not seem to care about the substantial inconvenience this causes guests. Would not recommend the hotel to anyone as this non caring attitude seems to permeate through the establishment.

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.
