My husband and I just spent the weekend here for our 1st wedding anniversary and loved it. Everyone we met was very nice and welcoming. The room was very clean and we'll kept. The bed was a little harder then what we are used to, but we survived with the abundance of bed pillows! The food in the pub was... More

Spent a two night getaway here and was very happy with our choice of accomodations. We stayed in a King Plus room with a view over the valley behind the hotel. The room was very comfortable, though we did rearrange the sitting area a bit, to better view the TV. Having a refrigerator and microwave in the room was a... More

The front desk staff was very warm and welcoming - and quick to provide suggestions for things to do in the area. Very classy look and feel. Big room with a great seating area overlooking the countryside. Bed was very, very firm and I anticipate that would be too much for some folks. We stopped in the bar for a... More

From booking online to farewells upon checkout, this was a lovely place to stay. Clean, quiet, spacious. Comfortable common sitting areas and a basket of scones for breakfast. The bedding was comfortable and the quality of shampoos and soaps in the room was excellent. There is a library in the common area and an Irish bar/eating establishment attached. I would... More

So glad we tried this charming hotel. Would have loved to spend more time here but only had the one night. Location is beautiful, and interior is delightful. Enjoyed the clean room and comfortable bed, and it was so quiet (a weeknight). We sat in the library and enjoyed our breakfast basket - the ambience was terrific, and the scones... More

We stayed here so that we could listen to the Irish music entertainment in the bar/ restaurant (Andreas Transo) and it was very enjoyable. The lobby areas and dining facilities have great atmosphere with lots dark woodwork. Our king-bed room was large and had everything that I look for in a good lodging- adequate light for reading, excellent shower, everything... More

My wife and I spotted this gem while planning our 22nd anniversary getaway. A brief but very scenic drive from Chicago, the Irish Cottage was very welcoming and pleasant. We enjoyed the live music performed on weekends in the pub. The including weekend breakfast was delicious! My wife discovered and fell in love with quiche here. We were practically walking... More

I stayed here for a girls weekend in August. What a neat place to stay, spacious rooms, great morning breakfast, the pub is charming and the staff had smiles every time you dealt with them. There is outside seating in back to enjoy a beverage in nature, close to the downtown and plenty of parking. If you book a room... More
