My daughter, grand daughter and I decided to stay at the Irish Cottage Boutique Hotel to celebrate our landmark birthdays. As owners of a small motel in Williamsburg, Iowa, we know what service, cleanliness and a peaceful stay is all about! They hit the mark of excellence in all three areas. Dana and Cathy did an incredible job at the...

We have stayed at the Irish Cottage twice now with a large group (30+ people) and they are always so accommodating and make everything wonderful. Our travelers always have wonderful things to say about the quality and cleanliness of the hotel. They serve breakfast in the pub for us each morning making it a great way to start our day....

The property and hotel was well kept. rooms were clean and restaurant food was good. Entertainment was nice also. Hotel was very quiet in the evening hours. Our room had the whirlpool tub, and was so relaxing. Coming to Galena for 15 plus years and have been driving by this place not knowing how nice it was.

My husband and I went away for the night/day. We decided to stay at the Irish Cottage again (second stay with them). The staff is so super nice and the hotel itself is nice and clean.

My wife and I stayed here to celebrate our anniversary. The President's Suite is beautiful. It has a sitting room and kitchenette. The room also has a hot tub. We will definitely come back here again. The staff was friendly, and service was great.

Made our second trip to the Irish Cottage and it was just as amazing as I remember it - maybe even better! :-) The best part, in my opinion, was that the staff remembered us from our last visit. They really take the time to get to know their guest and treat them like they are at home! Even the...

My husband and I went to the Irish Cottage Boutique for a quick getaway for our anniversary. We had eaten in the pub several times before, but this was our first time at the hotel. We stayed in the president suite. The front desk service was prompt and friendly. The room was very large-- even larger than anticipated. The room...

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay. The staff was friendly and professional. There were complimentary coffee and donuts available for the guests. We also had a complimentary breakfast that was delicious. I loved the character and charm this hotel offered. It was a little more expensive than we wanted to spend but with the coffee and breakfast I...

Very nice suite. Very well maintained and clean. Quiet and the king size bed was comfortable. Breakfast was below expectations. Close proximity to the Galena downtown and Main street stores and restaurants.

The atmosphere is lovely. The staff courteous. The pub is fun with live music and Irish dancers. I would have rated this place much higher except for the bed that was hard as a rock and the comforter that had a distinct aroma of sweat. Fix those two things and I wouldn't hesitate staying here again.
