What an incredible winter vacation for my husband and I this February! I found the Inn at Irish Hollow listed among the many bed and breakfast locations of Galena, IL and thrilled that I can add this location as one of our "places to visit again and again". The cottage we stayed in held all of the cozy comforts one... More

I visit a lot of places and only post a review if the place is remarkable. This was the nicest B and B I have ever stayed in. Everything about it was charming and Vincent and the rest of the folks were amazing. We had dietary restrictions but for once I didn't feel like it was a bother, and it... More

Irish Hollow is as great as the reviews say it is! We have visited multiple times (pretty sure it's 4) and are never disappointed! Stay in one of the cottages if you can for a great experience. And if you are fortunate enough to come at Christmas time you will experience a fully decorated wonderland! The food here is fantastic,... More

This is my second stay and second review of The Inn at Irish Hollow. I may have some of the details wrong but The Inn at Irish Hollow is on a 500 acre working farm and they have snow-shoeing, cross country skiing and hiking during the winter months. On our first visit snow-shoeing we were able to see some of... More

Where do you begin with the Inn at Irish Hollow...this a very special place with warmth ,charm, and character that you may never find anywhere else. My husband and I stayed in the French Maids Cottage, which was so cozy and perfect for the two very chilly and snowy days we were at the Inn. The cold did not stop... More

Second stay at Irish Hollow last week and I can't believe it isn't number one! My only thought is that it has fewer reviews than other B&Bs. We weekended from Chicago area and really had no agenda but to relax and enjoy the piece and quiet. Stayed in the Old Orchard Cottage and it was just as good as last... More

Where to begin, five star plus. Everything is done excellent and with attention to detail. Food, let's just say perfection. Presentation, taste, flavor, just superb. The staff was wonderful, attentive but knew when to slip away. Stonewood cottage was perfect with double sided fireplace. Ipad with pandora in cottage was a nice touch. My wife and I left feeling totally... More

I can honestly say it's the most romantic place I have ever stayed at. The Gardners cottage is amazing featuring a fireplace and 2 person jacuzzi. The 7 course meal was one of the best meals I have had in my life. The breakfast was delivered to our cottage in below zero weather and was still extremely delicious. They must... More
