Chocolate and champagne greeted us....a great fireplace, with plenty of wood and starters made for a lovely day by the fire. they had games to play, the cottage was... More

We stayed here for our three year anniversary and couldn't say enough! The cottage was astounding, as romantic as it gets. The food was amazing, they even specially made gluten free breads, muffins, and full meals due to an allergy and everything was top notch!

I have always had this picture of a romantic getaway in a cabin far from other people in the fall or winter. In this picture we would take a long walk to return to our cabin with a roaring fire. Well my wonderful boyfriend made this come true with the help of Matthew and mother nature. Irish Hollow is nothing... More

Spent an anniversary weekend at Irish Hollow and can say the cottages are stunning, the food fantastic and the service from Matthew, the Innkeeper, incredible. The Inn is set on a beautiful farm location with rolling hills and stunning vistas. The cottages are decorated beautifully with woodburning fireplaces, 2 person jacuzzi's, and equipped with an iPad with a great music... More

My wife and I spent three nights at Irish Hollow in January 2014 for an anniversary getaway. I saw the inn online several years ago and this was our first opportunity to get to Galena. I'm picky and I'm certain it is the only place for us to lodge in or near Galena. The idea of bed and breakfasts are... More

My husband and I stayed two nights in the Wells Fargo room. I agree with the last review that I would stay in a cottage next time and the bathroom in the Wells Fargo room does need some TLC. My husband was too tall for the bathtub shower. haha. The room is fine. Very comfy bed and lovely fireplace. The... More

I was afraid we might be disappointed just getting the room above the general store (Well's Fargo Room) instead of a cottage but the room was spacious and very comfortable. We loved the fireplace with 2 cozy chairs. Everything was beautifully decorated. The bed was a queen size and softer than we are used to. Bath could have used some... More

Matthew and the team at The Inn at Irish Hollow made our Thanksgiving absolutely fantastic. We were a small group of four and we occupied two rooms in the main house, both were very comfortable and each with a seating area around a fireplace, which was greatly appreciated during the very cold few days we were there. The food was... More
