The secret is out…Chicago Tribune article divulges where locals send their friends and family when they come to town. We’re honored to be recognized for our family-friendly amenities. Congrats to our friends at One Eleven Main for being the top Galena restaurant choice.
Loved this place!! We spent all New Years Eve there, didn’t even make it to town!!! Great music, food, and hospitality!! I would highly recommend this place. .especially to Irish lovers!!!!
What a little piece of heaven! The decor throughout the hotel is amazing. The library was so cozy with all of its comf. y chairs and views of the greenery outside. The staff was very welcoming. We even got a to-go bag of scones and fruit as we checked out. Our suite was beautiful – equipped with a whirlpool tub, fireplace and two tv’s! The pub’s food and drink were exactly what we needed before heading to downtown Galena (which is such a short ride from the hotel)! I would stay at The Irish Cottage again in a second! Thanks for your hospitality!.

Another rollicking good time was had by all.
If it’s a bit a Irish Dancing you be seeking. . .
Between special birthday surprises and ‘spoon’ haircuts it was indeed a memorable weekend
It doesn’t get any more fun than this. .
What is it about Ian and brides; must be the music!!
A natural-born performer with a repetoire to match
Fun, Fun, Fun: Oul Frank be proud!!
Her youth belies her musical magic!
The best Hooley (Irish Fest) yet: Andreas, Blaine, Randy and Paddy H were phenomenal
Still Goulden even with short ‘haar’
This place is really, really neat. Although it was only established in 2003 it has the feel of a much older Irish pub. . Attached to the Irish Cottage Hotel and Galena Day Spa, there are all the amenities that you could want. We booked our trip to after seeing the live music that was scheduled. Meghan Davis knocked it out of the park, playing a mixture of music from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and today. Everything from John Lennon’s “Imagine” to Sublime’s “Santeria”. We will definitely be back to the Irish Cottage to see Meghan Davis perform at Frank O’Dowds again!!!
Hubby and I had a fantastic time this weekend staying at The Irish Cottage Boutique Hotel!! We cozied up to the bar at t. he pub where Joy was an awesome barmaid!! She suggested drinks (the raspberry martini was great!) and explained some of the Irish culture and was just a fun gal! Even tho she was super busy she still was very pleasant and took time to chat with us!! The breakfasts were also very good and different!! It’s nice to have them serve you. and its complimentary with the stay! All the staff had smiles and the room was clean. Very unique and beautiful motel and pub! We will definately be staying here again!!.

Start with an expanded selection of appetizers.
Frank O’Dowd’s Irish Pub & Grill. We drive past there at least once a month and always talk about stopping, after going last night I wish we would have stopped sooner.
The place was great loved the Irish dancers and entertainment!
The food was great, we had stuffed mushrooms and Gaelic steak.
Death by Chocolate which was amazing.
We will now make that stop more often!
Great food and pints!
The live music was nice in the 10 minutes we were there. The service was absolutely terrible. The server came to the couple next to us repeatedly but ignored us.
We watched as 4 servers stood around and looked at us but didn’t come over to take a drink order or anything.
I was very disappointed, so we just ended up leaving.
Great decor and live music. Staff was good but could have been a touch friendlier.
Overall a worthy experience. An awesome place to for food and entertainment!
We love the Irish dancing and live music on the weekends.
We enjoy our visit every time we go.
