My wife and I stayed here to celebrate our anniversary. The President's Suite is beautiful. It has a sitting room and kitchenette. The room also has a hot tub. We will definitely come back here again. The staff was friendly, and service was great.

Made our second trip to the Irish Cottage and it was just as amazing as I remember it - maybe even better! :-) The best part, in my opinion, was that the staff remembered us from our last visit. They really take the time to get to know their guest and treat them like they are at home! Even the...

My husband and I went to the Irish Cottage Boutique for a quick getaway for our anniversary. We had eaten in the pub several times before, but this was our first time at the hotel. We stayed in the president suite. The front desk service was prompt and friendly. The room was very large-- even larger than anticipated. The room...

We also had a complimentary breakfast that was delicious. I loved the character and charm this hotel offered. It was a little more expensive than we wanted to spend but with the coffee and breakfast I...

Very nice suite. Very well maintained and clean. Quiet and the king size bed was comfortable. Breakfast was below expectations. Close proximity to the Galena downtown and Main street stores and restaurants.

The atmosphere is lovely. The staff courteous. The pub is fun with live music and Irish dancers. I would have rated this place much higher except for the bed that was hard as a rock and the comforter that had a distinct aroma of sweat. Fix those two things and I wouldn't hesitate staying here again.

Good restaurant attached, good location, clean, pleasant staff. Stayed on the 3rd floor in a king plus room. Bed was pretty hard, could hear people on above floor walking constantly. Very few kids seemed to be here during our visit.

We chose this hotel on short notice and were pleasantly surprised. Very nice rooms. Clean and comfy and quiet. Staff was awesome, very attentive to our needs and super friendly. Make sure while you are there to check out the attached pub. Great Shepherds pie and just a great atmosphere. Thanks for a great night all around!
