We stayed here for 3 nights. We were upgraded to the Glendalough Suite. It was clean, comfortable and the staff were all helpful and very friendly. We received a free breakfast basket on our weekday and free hot breakfast on the weekend. The hot breakfast was fine, a little disappointing since there was no choice. I had issues with the... More

Stayed here with my husband last year and loved it. Close distance to downtown Galena, very very clean rooms and hotel, great restaurant and entertainment inside restaurant, great service very friendly. I stayed at the Eagle Ridge Resort this year and did not enjoy it at all. I wish I would have stayed here again this year but we had... More

I have stayed at the Irish Cottage 3 different times over the years and each time has been perfect. My last stay was August 14th 2014. The staff was great and very personable. And the breakfast is a plus.....the scones Awesome!

This glorious boutique hotel was the most phenomenal stay of my life. From the beautiful decor to the delicious food, I could not have been more pleased. Although basically every moment of my stay was absolute perfection, I was most pleased by Kathy, the very hard working waitress/front desk worker. She tended to my every need, and answered all of...

We spent 2 nights here last week for my wife's birthday. What a great place to stay. The rooms are nice and big, with a great atmosphere. The breakfast basket is a wonderful treat in the morning. Really gets your day off on the right foot. The staff couldn't have been friendlier. Everyone we came onto contact with went above... More

When you approach the hotel you think...geez what did I pay for. However upon entering the atmosphere is captivating. Lot's of hard wood and large overstuffed leather furniture. The staff was great. The room itself was a bit dated but lovely. The Irish breakfast was scrumptious. Not far from the downtown which is charming as is the little ski hill... More

Perfect place for a family or a romantic getaway. We stayed with our son and his girlfriend in a suite that had a king bed for us and queens in their room. We were on the ground floor with a patio door to enjoy the lawn chairs right outside our door. Very clean rooms with comfy beds and pillows...What a... More

We were gifted with a stay in the Irish Cottage. We did not know what to expect as we had only seen a few pictures on line and no glossy brochure. This is one of the nicest places we have ever stayed in. The décor was beautiful with dark wood and the feel of an old manor house. The room... More

I have wanted to stay at this motel for some time; however, the weekend rates are high. So we choose to stay during the week. We have stayed in high-end motels/hotels and I would rate the Irish Cottage Boutique very good with high end furnishings, linens, and towels, clean room and clean throughout the motel . No, it isn't a... More

My boyfriend and I took a motorcycle trip for our birthdays and this was a perfect place for a little getaway! Close to everything and great food! Wonderful service and the bar attached had great drinks!
