If you intend to stay in Galway and enjoy the sites, this hotel is not for you since it's in Barna (about 15 miles or so away). That said, the hotel was modern, well-appointed, nicely furnished, and comfortable and clean. The mattress is very comfortable, but we would have liked a top sheet. Why do hotels in the most of...

Dear RWalkker415, I feel like a teacher who is put in the position of having to scold his favorite pupil for writing a bad term paper. With this in mind, I'm going to make this response and correction very easy for every T.A. reader to understand. The correct answer is either True or False and it is the same answer... More

Absolutely fantastic stay!! Room was lovely. The mood lighting was very fun and quirky and the bed was incredibly comfortable. Check in was smooth and quick as was breakfast. No mention in the guest directory of offering a room service breakfast? This would have been a nice touch. Also, huge thank you to the lady on reception during our stay... More

This is our 3rd hotel stay in Ireland in the last week, and hands down - this is the best! The rooms are more than you would expect from the modest but nice exterior. The service is aces and it was the FIRST hotel in the country to explain how the electric works; Collette is amazing - a true gem!... More

We stayed at The Twelve availing of their pet friendly option, and they meant every word of it. The reception staff made a lovely fuss over the dog on arrival, and had a gift bag in the room ready for him with a few treats. We ate in The Pins bar on our first night, and the food was better... More

Spent the weekend with my wife for our 21st wedding anniversary here at The Twelve Hotel Barna. What a great choice! From the time we checked-in (which was seamless and quick) to the time we had to leave, the Team took such good care of us. When we checked in Joleen from the reception and the ever amiable, accommodating, friendly... More

My husband and I stayed at The Twelve to mark our second wedding anniversary. From start to finish this was a wonderful experience. Fiona looked after every detail of our reservation and organised an amazing Dinner in West Restaurant on our first night. The selection of food at breakfast is excellent also, and very tasty. All the staff here are... More

Really enjoyed our stay at the Twelve. It's all about the small touches here that make your stay extra special. If you are looking for a nice treat, don't look any further. The staff first and foremost are all extremely friendly, helpful and efficient which makes such a difference. The rooms were really nice, very tastefully decorated and very comfortable.... More

We were a family of 4 and had a family room at the Hotel for several days in August . It really worked perfectly for us. The vibe in the hotel is relaxed, and chilled but lifted to excellence by the staff.The staff was very friendly and efficient. and professional. There are two restaurants in the Hotel, one the Pins... More
