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

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

My husband and I are just returning from an amazing weekend in the French Maids Cottage at the Inn at Irish Hollow! There aren't enough words to describe how amazing this place it! Stepping into the cottage you feel like your in a storybook place! It has a very old world feel to it - The bed was amazing, the... 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
