The room was lovely and the bed was very comfortable. The linens were great and the room had a small refrigerator, microwave and coffee pot. We did not eat dinner there but we did have desserts. One was a chocolate flourless cake (more like cheesecake) and the other we ordered was pound cake with strawberries. Both good. Would stay there...

A very disappointing 2 night stay for my wife and I. We were kept up for most of the night by the people who had the room above us sounding like a herd of buffalo. Also, we decided to have dinner in the pub the second night. We sat at the bar and waited for someone to come and wait...

We had a standard king room. Came with a fridge and coffee maker. Microwave not in room, but there was one near the lobby I think guests could use. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The trail out behind the hotel was shorter than expected but still offered pretty scenery and a great view of the surrounding area. Very close...

When schedules with family didn't pan out, my husband and I decided to go out of town for a couple days to do something different for Thanksgiving. We decided on the Irirsh Cottage Boutique Hotel, mostly due to its charm on the website and the excellent reviews. We also noticed they served Thanksgiving dinner so we thought why not? It...

Cute quaint themed hotel. We upgraded for the Aran Junior Suite with Valley view, don't get the 1st floor suite because the Valley view is the back parking lot, a row of trees and no real view of the valley. Service was great, got a couple of pints in the pub to take back to the room, it was empty...

Just got back from our stay at the Irish Cottage Boutique Hotel for our 1 year wedding anniversary. My husband booked us a suite on the third floor for 2 nights. It was a lovely stay. Our suite had 2 rooms- a living room and bedroom- plus a standard sized bathroom. The living room had a small wet bar area...

What a wonderful place to stay. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The people working the front desk were very friendly accommodating. There is an Irish Pub (Frank O'Dowd's) and restaurant attached to the hotel. It was built in Ireland and shipped to Galena about 13 years ago. It had a limited menu, but our two meals were very...

This place was so pretty, clean, comfortable!! Very nice rooms! The Spa was wonderful! We both had massages & everyone in spa was professional & kind! Definitely will go back! The bar area was so cozy--- nice atmosphere & beautiful woodwork! Very close to shops but not too close--- away from too much traffic. Such a nice place to unwind
