Our 2 night stay at the Irish Cottage was very nice. The rooms were as expected, the beds comfy and our view out the window was of the "Faerie Circle" that the hotel built to replicate the folk lore circles in Ireland. There's a couple of plaques that describe much more. The hotel has a couple of Irish lodge feel...

Love this place ! Would highly recommend this establishment to everyone. Katie the young lady on the night shift there is wonderful. She was very helpful when I was not feeling well at 5 am. She is a asset to the Hotel.

My husband and I spent a weekend at the Irish Cottage Inn and enjoyed it very much. We were in a 2-room suite with a fireplace. The fireplace was electric, but still a nice touch. Our room had a jacuzzi tube in the room, along with a wet bar. The king-size bed was very comfortable, perhaps the best we've experienced...

We drove to Galena from the Twin Cities & were greeted cheerfully and warmly by the front desk staff. There were 2 couples in our group & there was plenty of staff to check us in quickly, without waiting. We had a little time to kill before heading to a friends holiday party just 10 miles away, so we had...

In celebration of my husband's recent retirement we took a two night getaway to Galena and the Irish Cottage Boutique Hotel. It was absolutely lovely. Quiet and cozy, just what we were looking for on a very cold winter getaway. We purchased the anniversary package and felt that it was a great deal. Two night's lodging, Champagne and a nice...

My husband surprised me with a short mini-moon after our wedding at the Irish Cottage, and it was absolutely perfect! From check-in to check-out, we were greeted with nothing but friendliness and hospitality by the staff. We stayed in the Brian Boru Presidential Suite - the perfect setting for relaxing and winding down after an incredible wedding weekend. Champagne and...
