Nice hotel. Perfectly adequate for a base when visiting Killarney / Ring of Kerry etc. Rooms clean & comfortable. Food reasonably priced & tasty. No leisure facilities but that didn't bother us on this trip as hotel was just our base. We would return.

I stayed at this hotel using a deal on groupon which included a three course dinner, overnight stay and a bottle of wine with early check in and late check out. On appearance the hotel is really pretty and pretty easy to find as it is well signposted. It is not really a walking distant from Killarney town so you...

Avoid this hotel! Stayed in Torc hotel last night. The room was freezing. When we were departing the hotel this morning I informed the receptionist and she didn't even apologise. She just tried to fob me off by saying it must be broken. We stayed previously on the 23rd of December and it was the same case with the rooms....

This is a small hotel in comparison to others in Killarney but it is every bit as good as its competitors. Really friendly staff and modern spacious bedrooms. Very nice interior decorating. Excellent breakfast but the dining room could do with some curtains here as it is very bare. We were really surprised by the food. We had a superb...

Professional check-in on the Saturday night was quick. Compliments to Reception. Very nice bedroom and bathroom.
