On our way to the boat , we stopped off at The Twelve. This wasn't our first time and certainly not our last ! Great staff and great food. Beautiful surroundings with an amazing flare for art and sculpture. The range of craft beers and whiskeys is very impressive. I'd recommend a visit.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 23 August 2016

We spent 11 days traveling through Ireland and chose the Twelve as a pit-stop on the way to our cousin's wedding in Cork. Overall, all locations we stayed at on our trip were outstanding... but the one we keep talking about post-trip is the Twelve. We are a married couple (ages: 37 & 34) who traveled with my parents (ages:...

Stayed here overnight en route to the Aran islands as it was beyond Galway and a half hour to ferry. We had also heard good reviews of the food. On arrival check in was very good and we found the bedroom to be great - well once you disabled the disco light effect in the bathroom. The room was spacious...

Very friendly staff. Breakfast was excellent with a varied selection as was dinner. Rooms were satisfactory however starting to look slightly tired. We also felt that getting them serviced between 3 and 5 was a little late and one of our 3 days we could not avail as we were getting ready to go out. The fresh coffee,dainty muffins and...

Good food. Nice atmosphere. The staff were friendly & efficient. Enjoyed our visit to the twelve pins gastro bar. There was a nice buzz in the bar area where the food is served. I like the idea of seeing the kitchen in full swing while waiting for the meal. Will return when we can.

The hotel seemed quite posh from the pictures, and indeed our room was nicely decorated in a boutique style. The meal was fantastic and the squid was delicious. highly recommend that!! However, I found the hotel, the rooms and all the corridors very dimly lit and dark. it had quite an oppressing atmosphere to the place. Nice menu though.

We stayed at the Twelve for three nights and had a two-room connected suite--the suite set-up is wonderful for families, with just the right amount of privacy and connection. The rooms are spacious and very-well equipped. The decor of the hotel is off-beat and wonderful--from the Pegasus in the lobby, to the large mirrors on the different floors. The personal...

My wife and I visited the West restaurant on a Saturday night in April. Got our preferred booking time rather than the some what annoying " would you like the early or late sitting". The restaurant is well laid out with tables not on top of each other, giving you room to chat without overhearing the conversation next door. We...
