Vintage elegance, comfy cottage decor... set in hills of green as vast an expanse of nature as the eye could see....as if we were plummeted back into the hills of old Ireland....Beautifully charming smiles by all staff, welcomed us to the Inn... it's parlors, front porches, rooms...and dining experiences. Finding our honeymoon destination here was a fluke...I just googled B&B's....and... More

My wife and I celebrated our honeymoon at The Inn at Irish Hollow. We were warmly greeted when we arrived and our visit only got more incredible during our three night stay. The unique decor was so welcoming and beautiful. We stayed in the lodge in a well appointed room that was filled with gorgeous furniture and art work. The... More

This review is very long overdue. My husband and I got married here on March 1, 2014 and came back again this year for our one year anniversary. The Inn at Irish Hollow is truly amazing and Vincent will take amazing care of you. We got married just the two of us in the Station House Cottage on a cold,... More

My husband and I just celebrated our anniversary this weekend at the old orchard cottage. Wow is all I can say! If I could give them 10 stars I would! Vincent and his staff went above and beyond for food, service, and personality. The cottage was beautiful! It set the mood perfectly for the weekend. We were greeted with relaxation... More

We wanted a couple days to celebrate my wife's birthday and this place looked interesting. It FAR exceeded our expectations. One of the nicest places we have ever stayed. here or abroad. Everything is first class, personalized, and gracious. The accommodations and grounds are something to be experienced. The food was unique and gourmet. Out in the countryside, quiet, and... More

We have just returned from our fourth stay at The Inn. My husband and I look forward to the complete peace, pampering and indulgence of the place. This time we had 1 dinner and both breakfasts in our cottage. The dinner in the dining room was great as usual and glad to see it has been scaled down just enough... More

Just got back from a trip here this past weekend. This place, the staff, and accommodations are everything their reputation would lead one to believe. I stayed here with my girlfriend as a special birthday/professional school graduation gift; it was definitely special. The food is delivered to the cottage, and every meal was better than the next. To say that... More

This is the second time staying at Irish Hollow and it was just as great as the first time. Stayed in a different cottage which was just as luxurious as the other cottage. Dinner is a delicious seven course meal... We choice a light breakfast instead of the full breakfast which we enjoyed. The staff is very friendly and accommodating.... More

My husband and I recently spent a weekend at Irish Hollow for our 10 year anniversary and what a weekend it was!! Everything was perfect. If you can, I would definitely recommend a two night stay so you can experience dinner - words can't describe how utterly awesome the food was! We stayed in the Gardner's Cottage - hardly a... More

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
