We made the mistake (sorry Trip Advisor) of booking through Trip Advisor. We then found out there was a deal including dinner on the hotel website. On checkin we asked if we could have the dinner package and was told that they paid too much in commission to allow us to have any specials. I pointed out that we would...

Hi Trina, Thank you again for visiting The Twelve and our lovely village. It's a shame you missed dining with us but we are happy in the knowledge that once in Barna, guests are spoilt for choice. There is no real need to apologise to Trip Advisor though. It is always best to book with a hotel directly. You will...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 23 August 2016

We spent 11 days traveling through Ireland and chose the Twelve as a pit-stop on the way to our cousin's wedding in Cork. Overall, all locations we stayed at on our trip were outstanding... but the one we keep talking about post-trip is the Twelve. We are a married couple (ages: 37 & 34) who traveled with my parents (ages:...

I stayed in five different hotels on my week-long vacation throughout the Irish Republic and Northern Ireland and this hotel was by far the best. The bar downstairs had excellent food as well. Definitely worth a look if you're in the Galway/Barna area.

The main bedroom had a large super king size bed. There was a separate dining room with another TV & a fold away kitchenette which had a sink, fridge, microwave, coffee...

We stayed in cities, we stayed in a castle, we stayed at a spa resort. The Twelve was just a one nighter on the road. Well, the place just blew us away. Beautiful, comfortable, welcoming. The best breakfast of the trip. Best bed on the trip. The staff was great. We can't vouch for dinner, as we ate out. But...

Myself, husband and four friends had a 2 night midweek break to Twelve Hotel. When we arrived it was fabulous to have an underground carpark so you did not get soaked as it was raining heavily. Reception was very efficient at getting the 3 couples checked in and we went to our rooms. Lovely rooms, bed the most comfortable I...
