We had a great experience here, the room was great (booked the King Suite with valley view), bed was comfortable, room was always clean. Complimentary breakfast every morning was delicious, and the bar was great in the evening because you could enjoy a couple (or few) drinks and just crawl back to your room. Also had a great experience getting... More

We have stayed at the Irish Cottage in Galena a number of times before. We keep coming back because of the Staff and the feel of being at a B&B in Ireland. This visit was scheduled in part due to the Irish Music Festival held over the weekend of April 11 & 12, 2014. The music was great, and the... More

We discovered this place two years ago while staying at a neighboring motel, We enjoyed the food and friendly service. This visit to Galena, I surprised my wife with an "Eat, Drink and be Merry" weekend package at The Irish Cottage to commemorate our recent 52nd Wedding Anniversary. She has been delighted with our accommodations in the Glendalough Suite and... More

Only way our stay could have been better was if we'd stayed longer. Great amenities, friendly and accomodating staff. Family-oriented pub with Friday/Saturday Irish dancing and live music. Varied menu. Breakfasts were memorable on thier own.

We spent a much needed girls' weekend in Galena and were very pleased with the Irish Cottage. We had a double queen room which was very clean and the tub/shower area seemed recently updated. It did overlook the parking lot but that was not an issue for us. We remarked several times how quiet our room was. We enjoyed the... More

We are spending our 40th wedding anniversary at The Irish Cottage. Both our parents were born in Ireland and we have enjoyed spending many holidays over there. Since we were unable to make the trip to Ireland at this time, we chose The Irish Cottage in Galena. As you drive up to the hotel, you would think you are pulling... More

The young lady was very pleasant and helpful when we arrived. She provided us with area information and got us checked in quickly. Our king room was clean and spacious with fridge and microwave. Bed comfortable with lots of fluffy pillows made for a good night's sleep. However, for $150, in off-season, the negatives were: the parking lot view, the... More

Hospitality was exceptional and replicates the warm and friendly character of the Irish. R. O'Shea's prints were beautifully displayed throughout the hotel. Friday night Irish dancers and LIVE entertainment were quite enjoyable. Bartender, Joy, is appropriately named. Her service and personality were delightful.

What a treasure! We picked the Irish Cottage Boutique Hotel over others in the area due to the number of people in our group and we couldn't have made a better choice. Often through the week end I caught myself thinking that staying at the Irish Cottage was like staying at a Bed and Breakfast only better. The rooms are... More
