My wife and I stayed here recently. We booked 2 nights B&B and 1 Dinner in a suite as a post-Christmas break. Although the hotel looks a bit underwhelming from the outside, the interior was warm and welcoming. Our suite was excellent, although the low lighting levels made reading anything without glasses a bit of a challenge! The food in... More

Firstly thanks to Manon who was Fabulous to book with. On arrival we were given a very warm welcome by both Manon and her colleague. The warm fruit punch was a nice nice treat on a cold winters day as are the room pastries. This hotel really does differentiate itself with these small touches. I would highly recommend a massage...

We booked into the funny moon suite for a night for a relaxing break after working over Christmas. Upon check in we were greeted with a lovely glass of warm punch which was well needed as it was miserable outside. The last at the desk was so warm and friendly abs helped with a map to plan a drive for... More

This was our second visit to The Twelve in Barna. We had a speedy check in, a lovely room with a king size bed, freshly baked treats from the bakery and a hand written welcome card awaiting us. We had dinner down in the bistro as the West restaurant was closed. Some food was average, the calamari and burger. The... More

We received a gift of our night away in The 12. We received a very warm welcome on our arrival. Our room was very comfortable and stylish. The service in the hotel was to a very high standard throughout. We ate our dinner in the West Restaurant and we were both very happy with our choices. The hotel were very... More

On our second night we ate... More

Had a meal here with family on New Years Day, it was very busy when we arrived in late afternoon. We were told there would be a 10 minute wait but got seats in a few minutes at a long high table with stools. It was very comfortable and the food was really tasty, the staff were very efficient and... More

Came here for a Christmas break. We visit Galway a lot as my husband is from the area originally.and this hotel will certainly be our regular stopover. The hotel is quirky - in a very good way. Rooms are lovely but the best of the best is the service. The staff are fabulous - check in so welcoming you feel... More

The staff coped well with an onslaught of people rushing to check-in and get ready for a wedding reception and they did a really great job. Seeing as it was around lunchtime and all of the rooms would still be in housekeeping hands. Fine hotel in the tiny village of Barna on the Galway Bay (Galway traffic is still VERY... More

From check in to check out, the twelve hotel was faultless. I traveled with my girlfriend as we were visiting family in the area and were very impressed by the hotel and food! We are both working in 5 star hotels and were blown away by the standard of the twelve hotel and the services it provided. We are in... More
