Annette and I are from Chicago, We wanted to celebrate our wedding in Annette's home town,
Our guest list was small, So we needed a place that could help us plan this from over seas.

Samantha McKinley the Events Co-ordinator and Fergus O' Halloran the General Manager were superb in helping us plan our wedding, They went out of their way to help us rent a car, telling us where to get Annette's wedding dress steamed, hiring a band, choosing our menu etc.

The Food was amazing, wine was amazing, service was amazing! Fergus even personally served our table that night!

The night of our wedding we had nothing to worry about, they planed and took care of everything, All this and the price was very, very reasonable too!
I would highly recommend the twelve for any event, I believe the room upstairs could hold 100ppl

I can't say enough how much I appreciate all they did for us

Room Tip: Ask for Fergus for anything special you need!

Such an amazing hotel to stay in. Peter and myself recently got married at the Twelve and we could'nt say enough. Our day was amazing,Fergus, Samantha and the rest of the staff did everything that we
needed and wanted for our wedding and much more. Our guests are still talking about the place, the rooms, the service and the staff being so friendly and helpful. We will definitively be back and probably our whole wedding party with us too, even if it's just to have one of the amazing pizzas from the pizzeria.

Enjoying a very enjoyable two night visit over New Years Eve. Package included breakfast each morning and a Gala dinner on New years eve. Our room was of a very high standard, spacious and comfortable. All requests for the room were taken care of by email before our stay. The choice and quality of the food were excellent in both the bar and restaurant. Throughout our stay all of the staff were very friendly and provided excellent service. Would highly recommend to all!

My husband and I stayed at the Twelve Hotel recently to celebrate our wedding anniversary & I have to say this place is the BEST! We were upgraded to a Luxury Suite on arrival & the staff could not have been more helpful. They pulled out all the stops. The bed was so comfy, the breakfast was yum & the whole place was just beautiful. I would highly recommend it. I'm a very light sleeper, so a quite room is usually first on my list, but didn't have to worry here -you could hear a pin drop!! Never mind the G Hotel, The Twelve definitely tops that. I'm coming back for my birthday in March & I cannot wait!!

Love it Love it Love it ; )

We stayed in The Twelve just after New Year and were very impressed from the word go! The receptionist sat us down to check in and gave each of us a glass of complimentary hot punch which instantly made a good impression! Upon arrival in our room, there was also a card welcoming us to the hotel and a plate with homemade shortbread from their own on-site bakery and strawberries dipped on chocolate...again something unexpected and added an extra special touch not usually seen in hotels! Our room was immaculate and comfortable with voya products in the bathroom. We also booked dinner in their restaurant West and o my was the food delicious!! We both had three courses and we were not only impressed by the quality but also the nice quantity of food presented! Beautiful side dishes served with mains also which weren't stated on menu and lovely to get! Big compliments to the chef and the restaurant manager who served our table! Extensive selection of wine also! We went into the bar afterwards and were also pleasantly surprised at the wide range of cocktails, craft beers, gluten free beers available. I am pregnant and my husband asked for a non alcoholic cocktail to be made up which was no problem to the barman. Lovely atmosphere and very relaxing! Beautiful breakfast and complimentary tea or coffee on leaving summed up our night! I will definitely be recommending to friends and ask The Twelve to keep us these extra special touches because these were what made it stand out from other hotels and make me want to return!!

We stayed at the 12 for our Honeymoon in March and from the moment we made the booking we were made to feel special.

Upon arrival we were greater with complimentary drinks and congratulations from Fergus and his team...we had been upgrade to suiteX11 and wow the room was simply stunning!

The food is exquisite and their wine tasting evenings are simply a must, with the staff being in hand to answer every question and offer advise on the best places to visit.

The building is well maintained and. Wry clean and tidy,many problems within the suit were dealt with within minuets. The hotel is well connected, only minuets via a taxi to Galway City centre.

Needless to say we can wait to return to the 12 for another relaxing break!

Room Tip: If you can Suit X11 is the place to stay!

We arrived as it was dark, but found the parking without issue. Our room was clean and modern, and the food in the restaurant, both for dinner and breakfast the next morning, was EXCELLENT! The only issue we had during our stay was that the wi-fi wasn't working, and no amount of re-booting could get it to work. Normally, on vacation, this would not be a big deal- but being parents travelling without our daughter, it was upsetting not being able to keep in touch.
