We have stayed twice at Irish Hollow and enjoyed it very much. The breakfast was always the best part of our day and nothing like anything you could whip up at home. The staff was accommodating and the guests were their first priority! The bed was super comfortable and whirlpool relaxing. If you are considering this B&B you won't regret...

I am almost reluctant to leave a glowing review of Irish Hollow for fear of giving away our favorite secret. My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here two years ago and loved the escape from Chicago for a weekend on a working farm with delicious food and simple pleasures. This Mother's Day, we visited again with my parents. The...

I honestly do not believe it is possible for me to put into words all of the reasons why I love this place. My best friend and I stayed here for a long overdue girls weekend mid-May. We just kept saying: "This is perfect. This is absolutely perfect." And it was/is. The staff, location, food, atmosphere...watching the calves frolic in...

We spent two rainy April nights at the Inn at Irish Hollow near Galena, IL. My husband and I were belatedly celebrating my birthday, so we treated ourselves to a birthday cake (pre-ordered from the Inn). We arrived in our room to find not only the birthday cake we ordered, but also a chilled bottle of sparkling wine, an elegant...

B&B's are one of the best options to unwind and enjoy a weekend away without the hustle and bustle of hotel-life. Irish hollow is located in the middle of farmland about 20 minutes from Galena. The views are gorgeous and the gravel road and trails behind the property were nice to enjoy. Although there were many aspects that were immensely...

They did it right! Every item is quality, down to the special sheets and bed. We stayed in the stone wood cottage. So comfortable and romantic! Most of the food is grown on the property and the chef is outstanding from the herbs to the berries and they even have an apiary to make their own honey. Everything is fresh,...
