We booked a 2 room suite. It had a nice kitchenette, fridge and microwave. It also had a whirlpool tub and fireplace. We opted for the first floor with a small patio (patios could be a bit bigger). It was a nice room and property at the price point. We will certainly return.

Have travelled the world and this is probably my favorite hotel! From the moment of check in we immediately experienced rock-star service from each and every person we met. The management sets a solid tone that is clearly executed by a team of happy people. Rooms were extremely comfortable, well decorated, great bed. We split a memorable Gaelic steak that... More

Everyone was friendly and helpful, rooms were perfect for a long weekend. The bar must be seen. Tempting items in the gift shop. Ask about the bar, the "back yard" and the owner. Continental breakfast during the week, full breakfast on the weekends.

Rooms were spacious and clean. Onsite restaurant and bar makes it convenient to stay and relax. Service and the atmosphere with music and Irish dance was enjoyable. The close distance to President Grants home along with the rich history in the area makes this hotel worthy of consideration.

beautiful detail of an Irish Inn and pub....loved the choice of foods and drink at the restaurant.....the service starting at the front desk to the room maids was the best and made our first trip to Galena so enjoyable....we would definitely stay here again and recommend The Irish Cottage to our friends!

We stayed here for two nights for a weekend away in Galena. The staff is delightfully friendly, welcoming and helpful. From the desk clerks, to the servers in the bar and restaurant, even the cleaning staff, any interaction with them was levels above any other hotel stay we have ever had. Our room was nice, well lit and clean. Great... More

We just returned from our weekend Galena getaway and The Irish Cottage was a wonderful place to stay. Friendly staff and amazing breakfast. The breakfast stations and hot plates were delicious and the service could not have been better. We will defiantly be back. Have an Irish coffee while you're there. It won't disappoint!!

Everything about this boutique hotel was pleasant. The staff was very welcoming, the room was very clean, and all in all, was everything we were hoping for. We very much appreciated the comfy beds and sheets. The towels were super soft! We also enjoyed a delicious meal in the pub.

So many choices for lodging-this met our expectations above and beyond. Location was great, close to downtown. Our King Suite was comfortable. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. The pub was a great place to unwind and celebrate our Irish heritage. We will be back!

We loved our stay! The staff were all so helpful and treated us like old friends. Dana was especially attentive. The scones were amazing! Our room was clean, and the bed was so comfortable. (I meant to find out what mattresses they use.) The hotel was peaceful and quiet. We also did the mile hike behind the hotel. We highly... More
