This hotel is just your basic hotel with an Irish facade. While not super exciting, it was extremely clean and comfortable. Cute lobby and Irish theme. The restaurant had a fabulous complimentary breakfast & tasty evening drinks!

We spent a Thursday - Saturday. Basic rooms, very clean and a refrigerator. Great Service and good breakfast. Irish Pub was great for a pint at nite. Relaxing lounge with library feel and comfy oversized chairs. Close to downtown Galena but you will need to drive.

My husband and I took a midweek get-away to Galena and stayed at the Irish Cottage Inn. It was charming from the minutiae we walked in the door. We had a valley view king room and the view was worth the extra money. We both got massages from the day spa on premiss and we were both very pleased with... More

This is a well thought out hotel experience. From the Yeats Library to the Irish music, it is a treat. It is also well appointed in the rooms, as well as the outside which reminds one of the Ole Sod. I met all three of the owners and they had a wonderful sense of customer service. The staff could not... More

I stayed here in June '14 with high school girlfriends. We had a junior suite on the ground level, very near to the indoor pool and fitness center. It was a totally enjoyable stay with very attentive staff and complimentary breakfast included. The restaurant had some great choices, and authentic Irish recipes. I would highly recommend this Boutique Hotel to... More

We have stayed at the Irish Cottage twice now and both times have been great! It is super clean and we love the whirl pool tub right in the front room! It's a great romantic getaway. There is a cute little breakfast basket that you get every morning and you can have it delivered right to your room, just tell... More

We stayed here for a quick getaway and change of pace! Nice hotel, quiet, great location; close to downtown Galena. Plenty of shopping in town and the hotel offered a nice restaurant where we ate dinner; complimentary breakfast was ok. Friendly staff!

We stayed here three nights in June and had a wonderful stay. The first two nights we stayed in a King Traditional Street View room. We requested a room close to the elevator and were given a third floor room just off the elevator. It was a basic hotel room with a view of the parking lot, it did have... More

My BFF and I stayed at The Irish Cottage Boutique Hotel in early July 2014 on a girls getaway. Ireland is one of my favorite travel destinations and while you won't mistake this place for the real thing, the effect is convincing enough to tide you over until your next visit to the Emerald Isle! Love how each guest room... More

We just stayed at this hotel this weekend, and we were very happy with it. It's cute, quaint, and most importantly to us, very clean. The staff was friendly as well. The hotel was about a mile from Galena's Main Street, which was great, nice & close. Our ONLY gripe about our stay was that the pillows were horrible. They... More
