This was our 3rd stay and it was just as perfect as it has always been. It is truly a place you can't visit just one time. The food is amazing, people so kind and the rooms are a true romantic get away.

This was our fourth visit to The Inn at Irish Hollow, and we were here this time to celebrate our 8th wedding anniversary. We stayed in the Old Orchard Cottage which is gorgeous, and have previously enjoyed staying in the Stonewood Cottage and two of the guest rooms in the main house. The setting for the property is acres of...

This was out 3rd visit ! Each time we leave only wishing to stay, the cottages are all wonderful, the food always leaves you stuffed but tastes so wonderful you want more. The entire staff is great and very friendly and so helpful. They take time and talk with everyone, but most of all attend to details.

We recently stayed at the Inn at Irish Hollow and loved it. We were in the main house which was cute with our own fireplace. They served us one of the best breakfasts I have ever had and I am a foodie. They make their own chocolate croissant and it is absolutely fantastic. The next course was Eggs Florentine which...

My husband & I just spent our honeymoon here, and we are already wanting to go back for more! The cottage we stayed in was very clean, quiet, quaint and romantic.

The Inn at Irish Hollow is a wonderful getaway for couples. They make great breakfasts (3 courses). I highly recommend the cottages (check out the pics). They leave gourmet sweets for you, and the conversation is great. There is also a 7-course dinner on Wednesdays. This B&B is located in the countryside just outside of Galena-it's about a 20 minute...

The Inn at Irish hollow is located in Northern Illinois just outside Galena, Illinois. The remote location is perfect for those who wish to decompress from life's stressors. The main building was a former general store built in the early 1900's, with living quarters on the second and third floors. There are several newer cottages on the property, but they...
