Absolutely spectacular weekend! I am completely spoiled, I wouldn't be able to stay anywhere else in Galena after staying here. 5 stars all the way. Every detail was thought of, EXCELLENT food, GORGEOUS accommodations. You can tell this is a passion for the owners and they treat you like you are the only guests. (And I do believe they were close to full when we visited.) If you are looking for a quiet, romantic, cozy and delicious escape, this is it! Look no further. Thank you Tony, Bill and your wonderful staff for making our weekend completely wonderful. :) It was so nice to speak with you both about how the place started and the little peak into your lives. So inspirational! We will never forget that weekend and can't wait to return.
This place is fantastic! We were married there in November 1999. They took care of everything for us! Minister, flowers, dinner, cake, etc. It was perfect!. We then came back for our 10th anniversary and it was just as memorable as the day we got married. This is one of the most romantic B&B's ever! The best breakfast ever to wake up to!
From the moment we checked in to The Inn at Irish Hollow we felt comfortable, relaxed and knew we were among friends. Bill and Tony are unbelievable hosts. Their attention to detail created an atmosphere of warmth, well-being and peace. As soon as we walked into the beautifully decorated cottage we felt at home or at least how we’d like home to be. No detail was overlooked. From the variety of magazines we paged through on the porch to the champagne resting on the bar, just in case we wanted to celebrate our temporary escape from the city. The bedroom included a wood burning fireplace and a bed that was so luxurious that we didn’t want to leave. Relaxation in our living space was immediate, partly because our hosts saw fit not to include a television to distract us from each other. Another great experience at the Inn is indulging in the skillfully prepared food offered to guests and other vacationers. Every meal was incredible. We were simply overwhelmed. Each course delivered to our table was better than the next in an orchestrated delivery that finally made us put our heads down on the table in surrender, but we picked them up again and kept eating. The town of Galena is lovely and quaint but it’s certainly not the reason to go to the Irish Hollow. The entire stay could be spent on the grounds- in the cottage, eating and walking the path surrounded by rolling hills and cows. The Inn at Irish Hollow is a truly magical place. We felt at home during our stay and we were re-energized when it was time to leave. We look forward to returning very soon.
