Myself and my husband stayed for three nights in the Twelve in early December. We bought their fantastic Gourmet Weekend offer (three nights B&B and two evening meals) and it was possibly the best weekend we've ever had. I don't know where to start when I praise the Twelve... 1. The staff.... possibly the nicest, most genuine and helpful team... More

I just don’t know why Twelve are not further up the list of Top 10 Hotels in Galway. As far as ‘Boutique’ goes Twelve ticks the boxes at every level. Starting with the interior design both in the common areas but particularly in the rooms of which we had a suite WOW!! – and that includes functionality – the beds... More

I stayed at the Twelve Hotel at the weekend. My sister booked it for my Dad's 60th birthday and they upgraded my parents to a suite. When we went to check in we were greeted with a hot fruit punch while we checked in. The lady at reception was most friendly and helpful, wish I had gotten her name. The... More

I arrived at the Twelve Hotel exhausted and stressed. I left feeling like a I had been renewed. The reason I picked this hotel was because I could bring my yorkshire terrier. Well he got a welcome fit for a king. There was a doggy bag with treats and a toy in the room upon his arrival with a lovely... More

It's rare when you cannot find a single fault with at Hotel but that's where I'm at with The Twelve. Everything from the staff, rooms & food were nothing short of exceptional. Try the hotel restaurant West if you get the chance. This is my new Galway hotel!

My sister and her partner booked a midweek break package to celebrate their birthdays and her retirement. I called from Canada and purchased a gift voucher for them, to be given to them on their arrival, as a surprise. I was delighted to hear from my sister about how this worked out. On arrival they were congratulated by the staff... More

On check in we were welcomed with a warm punch which was a lovely touch. The room was lovely and the welcome card and little baked biscuit was a lovely treat. It is a lovely relaxing setting and I will certainly return. The breakfast was lovely served to the table rather than buffet style which I really liked. There was... More
