We had a long day of travels, we were tired, we walked into the room to find a small plate filled with mini cupcakes and chocolates. AND they were delicious! The room was nice, so was the bathroom. The next morning we had a delicious breakfast! It was one of our favorite breakfasts in Ireland!

We stayed at The Twelve (room 88) for 4 nights in July. The room was fantastic and quite and roomy. Full kitchenette with refrigerator and sink, wine glasses, etc. We had a bit of a medical emergency and the front office staff could not have been more accommodating and helpful. We were very grateful to all of the assistance from... More

Located a few miles to the west of Galway this hotel/pub/ restaurant is well located for touring the region whilst getting to peace and quiet. We had three rooms during our early July visit. All were very well appointed, nice welcoming touches, crisp bed sheet and good quality toiletries. Rooms are very good size. We only ate breakfast which too... More

My husband and I spent an amazing weekend here for our third anniversary. The staff were so welcoming from the minute we landed and the celebratory treats in our room were adorable. We stayed in one of the luxury suites. What a fab room!!! The view is nothing spectacular but the room more than made up for it. We ate... More

Just home from a fun packed 2 night stay in The Twelve in Barna. This was our first trip away with Fudge, our 1 year old Cockapoo, and I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. Staff were super friendly from the moment we arrived, Fudge can be anxious and bark a little when in unfamiliar territory but everyone made him... More

Everything about our stay from start to finish was perfect. The room, breakfast and staff. Although this is a very delayed review I have to give special credit to Siobhan during our evening meal. Her hosting was impeccable and I can safely say that the dinner was one of the best meals I have ever had

we stayed for two nights to start our honeymoon. We decided to push the boat out and get a suite which was fantastic. The shower had excellent water pressure and the room was quite spacious. On the first night we went down to the bar and an excellent barman from killybegs made us 2 cocktails one being nonalcoholic and then... More
