Our room was great and spacious. We used the room amenities including fire place, spa tub and kitchenette. Our living room had a widow, our bedroom did not. The bed was nice. I would have brought my own pillow though. The staff was very attentive and friendly. The pool and hot tub were very clean and nice. Our free breakfast...

We stopped at the Irish Cottage for an evening on the way home from a long road trip. This was a perfect place! We took a tour of Galena in the evening to plan our next day. We returned to the hotel and enjoyed an absolutely wonderful meal in the attached Frank O'Doud's Pub. We had the salmon and the...

The location is a bit outside of the cute Galena downtown area, so there's really nothing to walk to from there. The whole Irish theme is fine, although it seems kind of random since it doesn't really tie into anything about Galena. Anyhow, room was clean. The bed was way too hard, but at least there were 6 pillows on...

We stayed last Sunday in this hotel. First time in Galena, good place, rooms were nice & clean. We tried to eat at their restaurant but waitress was too busy. The poor girl was all by herself. After a long trip we were starving. My partner made a comment to the front desk girl and she was very helpful. Not...

Having stayed at the Irish Cottage before, my wife and I knew how great the place is. On this trip, we were again very impressed with the attention and friendliness of the Staff. From their initial greeting to the daily welcoming each morning, the Staff of the Irish Cottage makes us feel like family, and not just guests or customers....

My husband and I recently stayed at the Irish Cottage Boutique Hotel for our first anniversary. We stayed in one of the suites on the second floor, which the front desk staff generously let us upgrade to on our arrival. The room was very clean, had a whirlpool tub, and an electric fireplace. We loved our breakfast in the pub,...

Took a weekend trip to get away with the family for a little vacation to Galena. We had reservations at another property but didn’t love it after arriving. We called the Irish Cottage the day of to see if they had any availability and they managed to get us in within 30 minutes. Add the Irish Pub on the first...
