Very nice room and good food on offer at The Twelve. Will use again for business and will also use for weekend break with my girlfriend. Nice touch with hot apple juice at reception upon arrival on a cold February evening. Would recommend to anyone not looking for close proximity to Galway nightlife.

I have been to this hotel a few times now and I can't rate it enough. When you arrive, you are welcomed with a hot drink and the staff are so welcoming. The room is lovely with a massive bed, mini fridge, lovely shampoo and so on. When you leave, you are offered a token for a free hot drink...

Staff are very helpful, we arrived way to early for check in to which we were welcomed to a glass each of Ice Tea at the reception. We went for a quick stroll around the...

Another lovely break in The Twelve. This time we ate in West and would highly recommend you try the Sommelier's Choice of wines with your meal. Fergal's choices of wines were excellent.and the whole experience was really good fun

We live close to this hotel and frequently dine in the casual downstairs retarurant. This is a great choice for family restaurants in a relaxed atmosphere with great food, varied menu and friendly and efficient staff. Hotel/restaurant is located about a 15 mins drive from Galway city and is well worth the trip. Good value for money although do feel...
