Covington, Louisiana
Reviewed 12 November 2015

Hotel is within easy walking distance to pubs and restaurants. Off load in front of hotel and car park is an easy 2-3 mins walk up the street. 5 euros for 24hrs. Rooms were very large as well as clean.

The starlight bathroom is worth the trip! Part of the Railway Ireland tour and spot on, as were all our treks and accommodations. Beautiful walks, many day tours available. Nice food in house. Wonderful staff, just wonderful. Go and enjoy!

The hotel was very nice and the service was exceptional. Great location. I would definitely recommend this hotel! Lots of shops close by & the jaunting carts were right across the street. We enjoyed the breakfast very much. We hope to go back to Killarney and would definitely return to this hotel.

This was a great hotel that was right in the middle of town. While not over the top and not five star, it was a very solid four star hotel. Staff was friendly, lobby and rooms were well appointed, and the breakfast was excellent.
