The hotel is really a great choice if you have children. The restaurant downstairs is great with kids with a variety of food and lots of cheery staff. It makes for easy evenings after long days driving around the Irish countryside. One of our children has to have gluten free and there were lots of options for them here. The...

I stayed here over the Easter break in April 2015. It's well located in Barna ( as usually stay in the city). Plenty of amenities and beautiful beaches in the area . I had asked for a quiet room which we were given. Loved the voya products and little extras in the room such as the pastries and docking station...

Absolutely the most wonderful staff and rooms! We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a suite, and it was fabulous. The restaurants were also both wonderful. We had dinner at West upstairs and the drinks and breakfast the next day in the bar. Also, easy parking onsite as well as a fun village feel made this a great stay....

Have just had breakfast at the Twelve and found it absolutely brilliant, food was perfectly cooked, service was excellent and the standard of cleanliness was excellent. Even though it was extremely busy, the waitress cleaned floor with dustpan & brush, replaced paper table mats & cleaned tables properly after every customer. Offered very good value for money. Toilets were spotless....

Stayed a couple of nights in the Twelve, the room was a standard size and well maintained, lots of lovely Voya products too. The decor is dark, lots of brown and wooden floors. Breakfast was average, coffee could definitely do with being warmer! Nice bar, we didn't eat in but the menus looked good. Lovely bakery which is part of...

The Twelve - where history and tradition meet luxury and style. The Twelve is located a beautiful ten minutes from Galway city on the coast road to Connemara. Opened in 2007 to rave reviews, The Twelve won 'Best new hotel in Ireland' and since then has been judged the 'Best boutique hotel in Ireland' every year. Acclaimed for its passion of advocating great food through the use of local, seasonal products, The Twelve has also won every food and wine award there is to win. The Pins Bar really sets the tone with a hip, urban style (awarded Best Gastro Pub in Ireland), this hangout attracts an eclectic crowd. Grab a cocktail and enjoy the best of live music on the weekends.
