4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Nice lobby, restaurante/lounge and reading room - beautiful woodwork and comfortable feel. Stayed in a suite which was very good sized, clean and comfortable w some nice homey touches. Fireplalce mantle was great, but cheesy lightbulb "fire". There was a hot tub in the corner of the living room, seemed a little incongruous to me but hey, its there if... More

We stayed at this hotel for a girls' getaway weekend and it was perfect! The rooms are spacious and meticulously clean. The refrigerator in the room was nice bonus. I loved the feel of the lobby, which makes you really feel like you could be in Ireland, with big leather chairs, bookshelves, fireplace and worn wooden floors. Very warm and... More

Our family've stayed at the hotel for 2 nights in September. It's difficult for me to compare to other places in Galena region (it was our first visit to the area) so we compared to other places where we've stayed around the world. And I want to point out the price wasn't cheap! The staff at the reception was good... More

What a delightful property! Although it looks pretty kitschy from the road, the Irish Cottage is charming, clean, well-maintained and relaxing. The hotel feels like an Irish inn, with worn wood throughout, comfy leather chairs in a sizeable library, and an authentic Irish pub. Our room was spacious and well-kept. The window opened so we could catch the fresh breeze.... More

My sister in law and I stayed here for two nights while our husbands were deer hunting. We had a great time. We got a fall promotional package that included meals and a wine tasting. The rooms were very nice, the food was very good. There was entertainment - Irish Dancers- that was fun. We used the spa and were... More

Took my bestie for a weekend away from it all and this was such a classic place to stay. Friendly staff, excellent room, Irish entertainment (so much fun and got the crowd going!), delish food and we had a waitress named Jenny who was THE BEST! She went out of her way to take care of us the entire weekend... More

We had a great time here. The staff is friendly upon arrival. There is a great Irish bar that often features great entertainment such as a singer and story-teller. There is also a spa, which was good. We did a couples hot stone massage which worked out well. The only con is that it is pricey at ~$200/night, but most... More

Outside of town but easy walk (about 1 mile) to beautiful Galena. Enjoyed our stay - large comfortable rooms with all facilities needed. Very hospitable, and good to be adjacent to Frank O'Dowd's Irish restaurant. Not too keen on breakfast basket but does mean no waiting around.

This is about the nicest place to stay within 1 mile of the Main Street in Galena. Large rooms very clean and quaint. Full breakfast on weekends was good and breakfast baskets on weekdays. Easy to get to Main Street. Did the Spa and it was nice. Not the best I've had but very good. Main road out front of... More

My husband and I stayed here and thoroughly enjoyed this property. They had live Irish music / storytelling in their pub, and a lovely library space w/ deep seated leather chairs for losing yourself in a good conversation or a book. The view out back reminded me of Ireland, all green fields, a fairy circle, and some cows in the... More
