We had a lovely weekend break at the Twelve Hotel. The staff are so friendly and helpful- a real asset to the hotel. Our room was very nice and the bed was extremely comfortable. We ate in the Gastro Pub one night and really enjoyed it. I only wanted something light and the vegetarian pasta was just delicious. The choice and quality of the breakfast is first class. I highly recommend this hotel and look forward to a return visit.

Book it now! The warmest welcome. Everyone is just kind and jovial. Front desk day and night are the greatest people ever. I even had a huge, free, easy parking space. Made me feel like an old friend. Gorgeous room, perfect bed, bathroom with jacuzzi and double shower - wow. Outstanding experience.

A hotel that changes it's policy when you arrive! - Having advised the hotel that we had a large dog on booking we were advised that we could dine and have drinks in their gastro pub (our dog was within their policy guidelines) we were told on checking in and paying for our stay in advance that our dog was too big and we couldn't eat in the pub area, when we requested to eat outside we were told that the "didn't really serve food outside" only to find people dining in their outdoor space - NOT DOG FRIENDLY, unprofessionally dealt with and a HUGE disappointment - NOT recommended

We really enjoyed our stay at the Twelve. We were very fortunate to have some beautiful weather and toured the Connemara area and took in some beautiful beaches on our stay. The staff were so accommodating and they could not do enough. There were no triple rooms available when I made the booking. I'm not sure if they are a possibility or if there were just none available during our stay. If I had to say a negative that would be it as booking 2 rooms for 3 people made it a little more expensive than other places, but all in all, a great stay.

I stayed at The Twelve in August and it was fantastic! We brought my Dad for his birthday and he was delighted with the surprise and unexpected birthday treats left in his room when we arrived. In addition, I cannot fault The Twelve Hotel on their reputation as Ireland’s top dog friendly hotel. We brought my dog with us and all I can say is she was spoilt rotten and was right at home in the hotel from the beautiful suite to reclining on a chair in the bar. Thank you to Fergus and all the staff who were absolutely brilliant. The people make it 😊 Will definitely be returning 😊
