From the moment Anna gave us a warm welcome at Reception, we felt relaxed. Our suite was terrific - clean and comfortable with kettle, microwave & lovely touches including home made bakery treats & a hand written personalised card. Ate a superb meal in The West on Friday night. And the staff arrived with a candle (and singing) in a...

Good Points : Beautiful rooms, fab reception service, lovely touches like hand written notes and brownies in the room on arrival. Bad Points : FILTHY windows, shaving/vanity mirror hanging off the wall, waited over 40 minutes for a table in the bar (the bar meal was booked as part of our 1 night stay package). I really do not like...

I was very happy that I chose this hotel. Even the pre-arrival service was very curteous and upon arrival we were greeted with chocolate covered strawberries and a personal welcome card in the room. Love those tiny thoughts. The atmosphere and room were fantastic, we didn't even leave the room for hours ;). Especially liked the mood lights in the...

The entrance to hotel is from the car park and a little disappointing. the lobby is dark, seems quite poky and already showing signs of wear and tear in the way of dark stained wood. The lift is very strange - padded black plastic with a furry carpet. However, the welcome from the staff is charming and most helpful, and...

Just home from a mini break with my husband in the twelve hotel and it was sensational. From the minute we walked in to the time we checked out we were extremely well treated. All staff are incredibly accommodating and friendly. The room was huge and had every luxury you could wish for. We were more than impressed with the...

I booked this as a birthday present for my girlfriend. I had mentioned this while booking and to our surprise, on arrival there was a nice handwritten birthday card from the manager in our room with treats from the bakery. Nice touch. The rooms were very cosy and the bed extremely comfortable. Only downside of the room was that it...

I dine at The Twelve regularly (on average once per fortnight) either with my wife or family group. We are never disappointed. The food quality is second-to-none and really is top notch restaurant quality food but in the more relaxed atmosphere of a lounge bar. While probably a little more expensive than "pub grub", you really can not consider the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Twelve - where history and tradition meet luxury and style. The Twelve is located a beautiful ten minutes from Galway city on the coast road to Connemara. Opened in 2007 to rave reviews, The Twelve won 'Best new hotel in Ireland' and since then has been judged the 'Best boutique hotel in Ireland' every year. Acclaimed for its passion of advocating great food through the use of local, seasonal products, The Twelve has also won every food and wine award there is to win. The Pins Bar really sets the tone with a hip, urban style (awarded Best Gastro Pub in Ireland), this hangout attracts an eclectic crowd. Grab a cocktail and enjoy the best of live music on the weekends.
