A little piece of the old sod -- comfort, class, and hospitality with a capital H! The Irish ambiance is everywhere. We especially liked the Irish live music in the restaurant. Area Shopping in town was fun and varied. The caramel apples were beyond compare. We took a trolley tour of architecture and history. We HIGHLY recommend it.

My husband and I fell in love with Irish Hollow after a weekend getaway last summer. We're returning next weekend to experience Irish Hollow in the Fall. It is like a mini vacation where you feel like it's all about you, like they know what you want without having to ask. The cottages are absolutely gorgeous and private. The grounds... More

My husband and I were looking for a quiet getaway for our 1-year wedding anniversary, and found a listing for the Inn on the Midwest Living website. It looked like exactly the place we wanted and they were offering a lovely "Taste of November" package during the time period we were looking at, so we decided to give it a... More

So we missed the turn off of Highway 20 and had to double back. Then it was a gravel road. Starting to wonder if this was a mistake. Then we arrived, all doubts vanished! The restored General Store and cottages are right out of a magazine. The grounds have miles of walking paths with delightful surprises around every corner. The... More

The Inn is a great place to get away. Good meals, tucked away in the fields of Northern Illinois. It is a few minutes drive to Galena. We enjoyed the peace of the trails and the woods surrounding the property. Surprised at how quiet breakfast and dinner were. Great place to just be peaceful.

Fiancee and I stayed at Irish Hollow over the weekend. The whole experience was wonderful. The check in process was smooth. The Gardener's cottage was so richly decorated in fall colors. The fireplace was very inviting and comforting. The grounds are a genuine beauty of nature with the rolling hills and open meadows bursting with brilliant fall colors. The meals... More

My boyfriend, and I stayed in the Gardener's Cottage on Labour Day 2014. The food was to die for, the cottages were something out of a storybook, and the service was phenomenal.
