Galena is an out of town destination for our family. Our son and daughter-in-law decided on Galena for the location of their wedding because it was convenient for both families. We knew nothing about Galena. Last fall we spent a weekend looking for a rehearsal dinner venue. All the restaurants were very accommodating. We settled on the Irish Cottage because of the location and setting. We had oer d'd'oeuvres in the Library. From the very begining, we were very well cared for by John Mazor and his staff. The event was flawlessly executed. We could not have been happier. If you are looking to plan an event in Galena, we highly recommend that you include the Irish Cottage on your list of properties.

I have grown up coming to Galena at least once a year and over a lifetime of 33 years that is a lot of stays. The Irish Cottage is a WONDERFUL hotel with a great spa, pub, and service. We stayed here for an anniversary weekend and it was everything I thought it would be. The room was very well appointed and very clean. It was awesome to see paintings on the wall of places we have actually been and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast in the morning had the best homemade scones that were hot and melt in your mouth good along with all sorts of other goodies. The pub is fantastic with live entertainment Friday & Saturday nights with a good menu. They also offer around 10 beers on draught with many more to choose from and a whiskey/scotch menu with over 40 to choose from! We had a couples massage in the spa at the hotel which was SO relaxing. The staff was very friendly and accommodating with your pampering a top priority! After the massage we relaxed in a separate room with champagne and truffles as long as we wanted which was included! They are only 2 minutes from downtown Galena and the front desk will do anything they can to get you reservations or give you information on all there is to do. I have stayed at the Desoto House and Eagle Ridge and I would pick this place all day long.

Room Tip: The rooms at the back of the hotel have views of the Galena hills so make sure you ask when making reservations on options.

My fiancé and I made the trip as our annual Galena Getaway. This was our first stay with the Irish Cottage and we enjoyed it very much. The breakfast was good. A Hot Entree was available. We had dinner there one night and it was good and the entertainment (Irish Folk singer - a local person) was good and fun. We expect to stay there again.

Room Tip: We faced SOUTH and looked over empty rolling fields. much better than the parking lot - if facing North.

My wife and I needed a weekend to decompress and reconnect to each other. We visited Galena many times and drove by the Irish Cottage Inn on the way to town. The appearance and ambiance of the hotel had always intrigued me, so I decided to give it a shot. I booked the "anniversary package" which included a 2 room suite, champagne, breakfast on Saturday and Sunday, and a free dinner (entree) for 2 at one of three different restaurants. Our room was clean and comfortable. The staff couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. Delicious food, authentic Irish Pub, entertainment, indoor pool, workout room........fun and relaxing. If you want to suprise your wife or give her a special weekend, this is the place to go.

Rooms were spotless clean and looked new, or at least recently renovated. We had a view of the rolling hills around Galena . . I would recommend requesting this "valley view." Main lobby and Frank O'Dowd's Irish Pub were decorated nicely . . lots of wood, leather furniture, good ambiance. Breakfast was a fun variation on the typical continental breakfast. You get a basket with scones, english muffins, and a piece of fruit with optional o.j., milk, box of cereal, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, etc. You could pick up your basket at the front desk or call down to have it delivered to your room.

There is a spa on the lower level of the hotel, but we didn't try any services. We thought it was a fun local hotel versus your normal chain hotel, and would recommend it. We spent the night on a Thursday, so we didn't get to see the Irish dancers or entertainment at the pub. This entertainment is only on Fridays and Saturdays.

Room Tip: Request a top floor room with a "valley view."
