We stayed 2 nights and had a lovely stay. There was a good atmosphere in the bar, the staff were very helpful and the food was excellent, we would definitely stay again.

Had a lovely relaxing stay. Room was spotless and comfortable. Staff were very very helpful and friendly. Food was excellent and reasonably priced. What I liked about The Torc was it was noise free and even though we stayed mid week the hotel was busy. It was only 5 mins drive from Killarney and I would certainly stay there again.

Th hotel is extremely quite which is great. The staff cannot do enough to help you no matter what it is. It is always a lovely relaxing break when we go to the Torc.

Hotel was grand; out of the town suits us well. Food was excellent as was the service. I would recommend this Hotel for those requiring a quiet place to relax and sleep. I really liked the bed; it was so very comfortable. The shower was so so and the extract fan didn't seem to be working.

staff lovely, food lovely. place clean. Saturday night function was on music still going at 1.30, may not suit family with small children. Needs a little airing, rooms and hallway bit stuffy and musty. would definitely go back nice and quite. great banter in front bar with the locals.

Wasted an incredible amount of time finding it due the name change. Reception area cold, stove in place no fire lighting. Lift out of order, had to climb several flights of stairs (my husbands health concerns) no ground floor bedroom. Bedroom very cold radiator not working. Food good but dining area cold. (had to keep coats on while eating). Could not be more disappointed We love Killarney its a great place cannot wait to go back but not to the Torc Hotel

Excellent value for August - room spotless newly decorated - breakfast and dinner also excellent. Staff friendly and helpful - only reason for 3 stars is refurbishment is not completed - i.e. having to go through the quite dreary bar when entering and exiting but will consider going there again when it is completed

This hotel, which is now called the Torc Hotel, is situated about a 5 minute drive outside Killarney on the Mallow Road. As this is quite a main road, with not footpath or hard shoulder, I would consider a car very useful, if not necessary, if staying here. The hotel is being renovated and our room, in particular the bathroom, was modern and very clean. The exterior and the bar area are quite tired, it seems as though the renovations have not been completed in these areas. Breakfast was very good. For the price we paid, in Killarney in July of €38 per person B&B, this hotel was a bargain but for a luxury treat, I'd go elsewhere.

great place to spend a weekend in, only problem was this time around there was no entertainment, plus they are refurbishing the rooms but over all the staff could not be nicer to you. would recommend a stay there..

stayed in darby ogills for two nights b&b, the first room we had was cold and the bathroom light didnt work, so we changed rooms, the second room we had the toilet didnt flush properly and the bath drain didnt let the shower water go down, the room only has 3 channels rte 2, tv3 and tng, apparently they didnt get saorview so there is no rte 1, the food was lovely we had dinner and breakfast there and it was fab, there was functions on both nights there so there was very little room in the bar to sit, the first night we ended up taking our drinks to the bedroom, bottom line i wouldnt recommend it to my friends.

My husband and i stayed at darby o gills hotel for 1 night. We enjoyed our stay the room was lovely the staff were very friendly and we enjoyed a lovely breakfast the next morning. We also went to the dance that was on it was very enjoyable. The only criticism we have is that the room was too hot. The radiator was on all night we couldnt turn it off. My husband asked the Receptionist to turn it off she said she did but it was on all night. Its such a waste of heating it must cost a fortune.

Stayed in Darby O'Gills for a week end in August. Have stayed there many times and will definitely be back there again. I do not know how to recommend this hotel enough. Everything was perfect from the time we were greeted at reception to our leaving. The staff were wonderful. The food was great. The room was of a very high standard - clean, comfortable and cosy.
