5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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

Selected this hotel as a package deal for a Ladies Getaway weekend in Galena. Hotel is very charming- we especially enjoyed the library space and Frank O'Doud's restaurant attached to the hotel. Our room was clean and spacious- the bathroom is small. We asked for a room with a view and upon booking, was told we would be put on... More

We went to Galena for our Anniversary & stayed in a Glenadalough Suite for the Anniversary Package. The suite was very spacious - a bedroom & living room with a Jacuzzi tub. The champagne & cheese board were chilled & waiting in our room on arrival-sweet. The view from our room was very relaxing, cows grazing on rolling farmland. The... More

This was our first time visiting Galena and the Irish Cottage hotel was recommended by a family member. I don't know where to start. We rented the Glendough suite and it was incredible. It included a fireplace, jacuzzi, champagne and cheese board. We also received a voucher for O'Dowds pub for our dinner entrees and breakfast is also included in... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. We were upgraded to the Glendalough Suite. It was clean, comfortable and the staff were all helpful and very friendly. We received a free breakfast basket on our weekday and free hot breakfast on the weekend. The hot breakfast was fine, a little disappointing since there was no choice. I had issues with the... More

Stayed here with my husband last year and loved it. Close distance to downtown Galena, very very clean rooms and hotel, great restaurant and entertainment inside restaurant, great service very friendly. I stayed at the Eagle Ridge Resort this year and did not enjoy it at all. I wish I would have stayed here again this year but we had... More
