We stayed in Torc Hotel for few nights early August and had a very pleasant stay. The General Manager Brendan could not have been more helpful and welcoming. Bar staff waitresses, and receptionists were so friendly. Breakfast and evening meal was excellent, bedroom very spacious and comfortable, well located, peaceful and reasonably priced. We highly recommend this hotel if you... More

Bit out of town meant we had to drive in. Our breakfast wasn't included for some reason...The food was excellent and the room was great. Would probably stay in a B&B closer to town next time but if you're happy to be outside the town, this is the place for you

I stayed in this hotel in July 2015 on a business trip. It was clean and comfortable with adequate room size and a comfortable bed. The staff were very friendly and the bar food was very good. I would definitely stay again and recommend to others.

Good value for money, large room, poor shower pressure, good choice of dinner menu even though we didn't eat there. Very comfortable bed. It is a little distance from town but taxis are easily available . We had a family room even though there were only two of us.

Cleaning staff ignored the “do not disturb” sign posted on our 2 rooms during our 2 night stay. Cleaning staff came into our rooms while we were out despite the signs posted and moved and tossed around our personal items, putting my pajamas on top of the hotel room telephone (disgusting) and putting my spouse’s underwear on the bed-side table....

We were booked in through bookings.com at a reduced rate for a family room. We made it clear that there were three of us but the room was only prepared for two. In fairness the staff sorted things out - but said they were very busy. This isn't evident to us and in any case a little efficiency in the... More

Lovely hotel situated a little outside Killarney. Such lovely staff and location. We stayed over a busy weekend as the ring of Kerry was on. Yet it didn't take away from a lovely break. Breakfast was really tasty and got us our food early for the morning of the cycle. Will return for another stay soon.
