We held our class reunion in the Pub. Kathleen met with several of us weeks ago and assisted with booking everyone to stay on the same floor so we could all be together! I am sure this was not an easy task! John and Samantha were very friendly and helpful to us. It was a wonderful evening with Irish music... More

Our class reunion was held nearby, but by far, the best part of the weekend was the Friday night get together held at the Irish Cottage restaurant on a Friday night prior to the more formal reunion. Sam was able to reserve the seating area at the south side of the restaurant so that we could sit together and to... More

We stayed one night here for our 4 year wedding anniversary. We checked in very easily and the worker gave us a list of things to do and activities around town. We got to our room with a card wishing us a happy anniversary. Which was really nice and personable for them to do we thought. A typical hotel wouldn't... More

Just my mom and me in a standard room, two queen size beds. Clean, comfortable and simple. Loved all the artwork and history of Ireland. Breakfast was complementary and was scones with fresh fruit in a cute basket. There were extras like yogurt, oatmeal and hard boiled eggs. Coffee a plenty along with several juices. We took our basket and... More

We stayed here the Sunday night before Labor Day. A fun little stop off. The front desk was very pleasant and helpful. After a full day of riding our Goldwing, we appreciated the hot tub. Breakfast was a nice surprise. They offer a full, sit down breakfast with waitress service. However, it is a "take it or leave it" breakfast.... More

I planned a weekend trip with my wife as she has never been to Galena. The suite was an excellent choice for lodging with the private bedroom. Very Quiet with the valley view. The hot breakfast on the weekend was excellent. We made the mistake of not having a reservation for dinner and had to dine elsewhere. If dinner is... More

Having not been to Galena in several years, I found the Irish Cottage Hotel onTrip Advisor. This very attractive location just outside downtown Main Street, was a pleasure. Very accommodating staff, large clean room with a Valley view, excellent pool and gym, well decorated lounges, and an authentic Irish Bar (O'Dowds) attached. Only glitch was being trapped in the small... More

I can not say enough about the wonderful service at this hotel. From check in to check out it was flawless. My daughters and I found that anytime you passed someone who worked there, they were friendly and asked if we were having a nice time. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious. It had a small refrigerator and coffee... More

If you are planning a small intimate wedding don't bother with this place. We called 9 months ahead of our date and were told it was available. But when we told them our party was 45 they said they were unavailable due to our size. Their website appears to welcome all weddings. This is not the case. Rude, uncaring and... More

This review was originally posted on Yelp for which we provided a more traditional response; however, it appears we need a platform to share our side of the story. Based on Chuck's fiancee, we provided a price for 20 guests for the date, a menu and bar type. The couple countered, requesting a reduced rate for their wedding by downgrading... More
