This hotel was pretty good to stay at. The room was very clean, staff were very helpful and friendly, beds and pillows were amazing as well as good water pressure in the showers. The theme and charm of this was great with an Irish flare. Liked how the gift shop had Irish items you could purchase. The complimentary breakfast was... More

I let the husband book our hotel in Galena. He booked us at the Irish Cottage. The staff was friendly and helpful throughout our stay. Our room was fantastic! The Irish charm was everywhere inside and out of this hotel. We loved the view and almost forgot we were in Galena and not Ireland. The complimentary breakfast was delish and... More

Great hotel for a mom's weekend away! Staff was very friendly, rooms are spacious and clean, the beds and pillows were amazing, my massage at the spa was probably one of the best I've had, and the restaurant was great (martini, fish & chips, free breakfast - all awesome). Short drive downtown. Maybe a little overpriced but you can't go... More

It was just my wife and I. It was a weekend to get a way. It was our first time at the Irish Cottage. We originally booked for two nights but as we checked in - we decided on another night. Three nights somewhere we had never stayed before. this was either gonna be good or bad I thought. So... More

This hotel is about a mile from main street downtown, which for us was very walkable, and we did this a couple of times (although hilly). You can also easily take a few minute drive to town. The hotel is fine, overall. kinda cheesy decorations, but definitely has an authentic Irish feel. Rooms were also what I expected, nothing more... More

We came here based on the TripAdvisor reviews and we were content. The hotel is nice, a little older, but very nice. The rooms are spacious, beds are very comfy, the jacuzzi worked great! There is a bar that plays live music and you can grab a pint. The bar is OK, not a truly loud and hoping place. In... More

We purchased a package deal that included a couple's massage. When, we got there I was a little disappointed that our room was facing a parking lot and had an attached door to another room with a family. We could hear all of their conversations within the first five minutes of getting in the room and I was a little... More

We enjoyed three nights at this hotel. We opted for the cheapest rate (basic king room, parking lot side) knowing we wouldn't be spending a lot of time there. When we checked in we were given a complimentary upgrade to a Glendough suite! The separate bedroom was a nice touch and so dark! It was hard to get up in... More

We decided to spend our anniversary weekend in Galena and selected the Irish Cottage as our hotel. What a great choice. We were welcomed and treated wonderfully. The room was great. The complimentary breakfast was truly delicious. Also the restaurant...so good. We ended our day in the bar and listened to Meaghan who is wonderful. All in all a great... More
