After spending two nights at this hotel recently, I felt I needed to share a realistic review to others. The hotel is in an extremely convenient location for visiting all the historic sites of Galena and the young staff attempted to be friendly enough, but it is sadly not the "boutique" atmosphere that one might expect from its name.

This hotel is a standard type of hotel. The owners have gone to great efforts to give it an Irish flair. The rooms are spacious and decorated well. TV is very on a very low dresser and hard to watch while lying in bed. The sink area is a part of the bedroom and separate from the toilet/shower room. I'd... More

Great place for a couples weekend, very fun atmosphere and beautiful rooms. Service was very friendly and delicious complimentary breakfast! Would stay again! The rooms were decently priced and they have an attached pub and restaurant.

A romantic GET-A-WAY WEEKEND the Irish Cottage is well worth it The drive from Chicago was easy and as you approach the hotel you drive thru green rolling hills .. We've been back 2x and our frinds went back after the first time because they enjoyed it so muchy...

The very first thing that we noticed was the construction crew and vehicles in the front of the building right at the entrance. As a matter of fact as we walked through the canopy we were sprayed by water. The room was nicely decorated but I was disappointed that our scenic view was the back parking lot lined with trees...

A wonderful hotel just outside of Galena, loaded with amenities. The rooms are a very nice size and if you are located in an odd numbered room you have a nice view of the rolling hills behind the hotel. The bed might just have been the most comfortable one I have slept in, so comfortable it was actually hard to... More

Stayed a couple night in the Queens room and was delighted with the place. With the exception of the two Asian front desk people, sorry but they gotta go just because they speak nothing close to Irish and it's an Irish hotel. Epcot doesn't employ Mexicans for Germany, just saying. Snug room on the bar is a must and have... More

Loved our stay at the Irish Cottage Boutique Hotel! Four of us ladies stayed 3 nights at this place and had a wonderful time. The entire staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and welcome. Rooms were clean, beds were great and the pillows on the beds were wonderful. The... More

The Irish decor might fool you into thinking you're in Ireland ! The lobby, registration area and pub are very charming and cozy. Continental breakfast of fresh-baked scones, fruit and eggs served every morning. The hotel is very clean, including the rooms. Not as much Irish charm in the rooms but the beds are comfortable. And really how much time... More

I had booked a trip for my parents to stay over valentines day weekend. Unfortunately my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer right before the holidays, and was going to have to start chemo. Their stay in February was not going to happen due to this. I contacted Kathleen at the Hotel to explain the situation and ask if i... More
