Love the food, fun and revelry of St. Patrick's Day?
Want to experience the Emerald Isle without a passport?
At The Irish Cottage Boutique Hotel, we "Celebrate St. Patrick's Every Day!" Through warm hospitality, well-appointed guestrooms, art, music, dance, food & drink, you will live life and, if for only a day, become Irish.
Our family-owned and operated hotel and pub is the dream of two Irish immigrants, Basil Conroy (Co. Kildare) and Jack Coulter (Co. Dublin). Details throughout the hotel and pub help guests discover and connect with the culture of Ireland.
Book one of our well-appointed guestrooms, which fuse Gaelic traditions with modern 21st century accommodations. Choose an inviting Glendalough Suite for a view of our very own "Valley of Glendalough."
After a wee rest, meander outside discovering Irish history and folklore including a facade of Dublin storefronts, a stone Dolmen, and an enchanting Faerie Ring.
Inside discover hundreds of beautiful paintings by famed Irish artist Roisin O'Shea and explore public gathering places, which exemplify the finest in Irish craftsmanship.
As day turns to night, let the fun begin with a visit to Frank O’Dowd’s Irish Pub & Grill to raise a pint and savor selections from our menu featuring traditional Irish specialties (Shepherd's Pie, Fish 'n' Chips, Reuben) and modern Irish twists (Irish Nachos, Gaelic Steak).
A St. Patrick's celebration wouldn't be complete without an Irish toast! Order a Guinness and watch as it's perfectly poured from our state-of-the-art draught beer system. If whiskey is your passion, try a few selections from our expansive whiskey collection.
Marvel at the authentic architectural details of the pub, which was designed and handcrafted in Ireland, disassembled, shipped to America and rebuilt in Galena.
No need to wait for March 17th for fun and revelry — every weekend year-round, our pub transforms into Galena’s most dynamic entertainment venue with
Irish dancing and talented entertainers live on stage.
Celebrate St. Patrick's Day by singing and clapping along to the fun while you enjoy "Ol, Ceol agus Craic" (a good pint, great music and wonderful entertainment).
