Irish Hollow is a dream retreat for any couple.  The beautiful country style bed and breakfast is situated on 500 lush acres of the most incredibly scenic Illinois countryside.


Your getaway to Irish Hollow will ensure it begins with a warm, personal reception from your hosts.  Beautifully charming accommodations, with the perfect attention to detail will welcome you with warm, open arms.


There are two different accommodation types for your choosing. You can spend your getaway in either the idyllic guest rooms within the Main Inn, or the luxury cottages nearby.


Each room and suite within the historic inn feature a stunning fireplace and bathtub for you to soak away in. The rooms are notably more intimate and cozy than the cottages. The feel of the olden days, with authentic claw-foot bathtubs, and decorations to match. They also will provide you wonderful views of the Irish Hollow Valley.


The cottages will take you that extra mile for the most unspoilt and romantic time away.  The Stonewood Cottage is a favourite, with a beautiful limestone wood-burning fireplace to keep you warm as the sun goes down.  A spectacular four poster bed will await you in the evening, and a double whirlpool bath will be ready to sip champagne from in an evening.  Your screened sitting porch is the perfect place to indulge in that wine as you watch the colors of the hillside change.


Irish Hollow gives you five immaculate cottages to choose from, with nearly all featuring that stunning fireplace and whirl tub bath.


The surrounding nature of Galena provide you with wonderful activities that you can fill your day with.  During the winter months you can take to the slopes and master your skiing.  During the summer months the breathtaking grounds are a perfect place to get back out into nature and take a relaxing and peaceful hike.


Treat yourself to a trip to these private, luxury cottages and inn - pamper yourselves.


Irish Hollow offer “additional meals” which will allow you to really customise your stay.  If you would rather take a breakfast basket on your early morning snow trek, or enjoy a beautifully prepared supper by your private fireplace, then you can.  Your time together can be as perfect as you want it to be, tailored around you.


Enhance your experience by ordering one of their very special “parties for two”.  You can choose from the very romantic in suite private dining where you can indulge in wine, cheese and meats as you take in the clear crisp Ohio air from your porch.  Enjoy a romantic and atmospheric private campfire where you can tuck into your gourmet hamper with just the glow of the cracking fire to light you up.  To really enjoy something special, experience a private dinner for two out on the Old Iron Bridge, sitting hand in hand under the stars as you bring your evening to a close.

The dinners at the Irish Hollow are a completely indulgent 7 course meal, so be sure to save room!
