This was our first stop on a 14-day trip in Ireland. Can't recommend it highly enough. My room was lovely, the breakfasts, hot to order or cold buffet, were great, and our meal in the restaurant West was memorable for its freshness and tastiness. Just a short bus ride into the City Center and great to come back to the...

Just back from another perfect trip to the Twelve. Can't rate the place high enough. It was my wife's birthday and as usual the staff made everything run smoothly and left a happy birthday message in the suite with the usual treats on arrival. Two top class meals and service in the West to round it off and it all...

Like many of the reviewers for this hotel, I absolutely loved my recent stay at The Twelve. I’ve been here a few times, and each time, I leave knowing I’ll return. All comments about welcome drinks, delicious bakery goodies, organic yoya products, gorgeous cooked breakie, cool décor, hand written welcome notes and funky bathroom lighting … these were all true...

I wish I could give this hotel more stars! This place made our trip that little bit nicer!! Beginning of our trip we were greeted with free underground car parking. Definitely a must. As we were checking in the lovely reception staff gave us fresh juice to welcome us. The room was very comfortable, the bed was the best by...

My 2 best friends and I had the pleasure of staying in the Twelve last week & we delighted with our stay. From the first moment we were greeted by the very friendly Colette on reception who immediately made us feel at home. We dined in the bar that night & as I have quite specific food allergies I always...

One of the members of our tour group commented that this hotel is a lot like hotels of the W Hotel brand. There are many similarities. Very modern, chic design. The hallways alternate between darkness and areas lit by spotlights. The rooms had many unusual controls for the lights and bathroom fixtures -- as our bus approached the hotel, our...

Myself and my partner stayed here just the one night from a special deal called the lazy Sunday Package. It was just exactly what it offered. Early check in, late check out, food and beverages and a great atmosphere. A second nite or a week here would be nice if your the type to just switch off and zone out...

Our suite was spacious, very comfortable and had lovely touches... shortbread biscuits and chocolate dipped strawberries on arrival for the adults and generous doggie bag - literally - for my yorkshire terrior!

Stayed here two nights when visiting Galway. We did the dinner/breakfast package at The Pins restaurant, and the food was fabulous! The restaurant was very lively and had a great wine list. Both dinner and breakfast were delicious. The room was large and luxurious with sumptuous linens and mattress. The spa products were great! Short trip to Galway and very...
