'Ireland's Hotel of The Year 2018'. The Twelve - where history and tradition meet luxury and style. The Twelve is located a beautiful ten minutes from Galway city on the coast road to Connemara. Opened in 2007 to rave reviews, The Twelve won 'Best new hotel in Ireland' and since then has been judged the 'Best boutique hotel in Ireland' every year. Acclaimed for its passion of advocating great food through the use of local, seasonal products, The Twelve has also won every food and wine award there is to win. The Pins Bar really sets the tone with a hip, urban style (awarded Best Gastro Pub in Ireland), this hangout attracts an eclectic crowd. Grab a cocktail and enjoy the best of live music on the weekends. Experience West at The Twelve for the ultimate, gourmet dining experience, then retire to your chic room and consider ordering exclusive seaweed spa treatments to begin your next wonderful day in Barna, Galway.

Perfect place to stay when visiting this part of Ireland. Would definitely return. Delighted to have found the hotel thanks to Trip Advisor. Staff couldn't be nicer. Breakfast was yummy. Absolutely nothing to complain about. Recommend the hotel highly.

Yes there is a bus stop near the hotel but I think you need to get back into the city to go on a sightseeing tour

Hi Messy, Thank you. Yes, we offer both rooms and suites with options of a twin bed. Just book directly on The Twelve with your request or call the hotel directly. Congrats to your daughter.

Hi Judy, yes, we caught a cab, cost (from memory) less than €10. The roads up to the hotel are quite steep so unless you want the workout, cab is the way to go! Galway is stunning in the Centre, lots of shopping! Enjoy, Anita
