I can't put into words how amazing the Inn at Irish Hollow is. We just got back from a two night stay in the Gardener's Cottage and our experience cannot be overstated. The attention to detail and love that is put into everything is something I have never seen before. The food was A-MAZ-ING! not just good for a B&B, but amazing as in some of the best food I've had anywhere. Each breakfast came with a fruit course to begin (Day 1 - fruit platter/ Day 2 - fruit and homemade granola parfait), a fresh made pastry (Day 1 - chocolate and almond croissants/ Day 2 - cinnamon rolls) and a main dish (Day 1 - eggs florentine with lemon dill sauce/ Day 2 - corn cakes with red pepper jam stuffed with goodness...)
The 7 course dinner menu I will post a picture of...but it was just as delicious as things I've had downtown in Chicago and better than most.
The cottage...was just unfair. I am ruined for life!!! It was heart-breaking-ly beautiful and romantic. I actually laughed when I opened the door because I had never seen something so magical. We had previously stayed at Eagle Ridge on our last trip to Galena and considered it for this trip as well. Never again. Not a chance
