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

Wonderful job Mathew on the property, the cottages, the incredible food and the way you connect with your guests. The Inn at Irish Hollow has no equal when it comes to laid back, tranquility. Our cottage was breathtaking and walking around the grounds took us back in time. Just wish we could have stayed longer. We will be back. Thank... More

My husband and I and another couple spent two nights here and had a fabulous time. We stayed in the Orchard Cottage and our friends stayed in the Gardener's Cottage.
