My husband and I stayed at the Irish Cottage Boutique Hotel the end of March for a spring break little get away. We were very pleasantly surprised at how much we liked it here. The hotel is close to downtown Galena so it is easy to get around. The scones in the morning were very good! Having an after dinner...

My daughter and I have visited the Irish Cottage Boutique Hotel twice now. Each visit has been wonderful. Breakfast is included. Irish dancers and music on weekends. Leather couches in the library. Full spa available. Can't go wrong!! You can do as little or as much as you want - it all adds up to relaxing.

Irish Cottage is perfect for relaxing weekend getaway. Great atmosphere, great service, really great food & entertainment. It's a short drive or walk from main street shopping & wine tasting. Close to wineries & scenic hills of Galena. I've stayed here twice & will go back again!

Took my wife there for a late Valentines day weekend, and had a GREAT time! From the start, the people at the front desk were professional, prompt, and ready. I had asked for a Cheese tray and bottle of wine upon our arrival, and it was ready and delicious in our room. Our room was perfect as well. We got...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Irish Cottage! It is very quaint. Rooms are large and well-appointed; it is very quiet; and the Pub is great - good food and Irish dance and music on weekends. The free hot breakfast was exceptionally tasty!

Had two good nights stay. Enjoyed the attached Frank O'dowds Pub. Check in was really quick. Room had fridge that didn't seem cold enough. Ended up leaving some clothing items there after checkout and they called me the same day to see if I wanted them to mail them to me as I was not going to drive three hours...

We booked a getaway weekend in this hotel and were pleased, overall. We felt that the hotel billed itself as a luxury, boutique hotel, but that it was fairly average. The service was good, our room was clean, the bathroom was standard, and so on, but the hotel was no better than a good Comfort Inn. We liked the library...

This is not your regular hotel. To us it is more upscale for a fair price. The bed we had was so comfortable, our room exceeded our expectation. Super clean...all around the hotel. We had the valley view which is what we needed. There is a small kidney shaped pool with hot tub. Great after walking all day. And try...

Right on U.S. 20 2 minutes east of downtown Galena you'll find a delightful hotel and pub that will take you away to another place. Entering the lobby is like stepping into Ireland, very warm woodwork, library room, Irish posters immediately immerse you into the warmth of an Irish stay. We stayed there two nights over St. Patrick's Day and...

The hotel is about 1 mile from Main Street Galena. It has a beautiful lobby and library. We stayed in a regular king room. The room itself was slightly above average, but the hotel atmosphere, breakfast and attached pub make this an excellent choice. We had a continental breakfast on Friday with freshly bake scones. On Saturday, we had a...
