The Twelve is considered Ireland's most pet-friendly hotel for a reason! The staff went above and beyond to welcome us and our little Poppy. We had a lovely Christmas stocking waiting in the room with treats and toys, there was a big comfy dog bed for her and a water bowl with spring water.
We ate at the in-house gastro-bar, The Pins, where the waiter was just as attentive and Poppy had her own menu to order from, settling on the Connemara Meat Balls which she went crazy for!!
All-round a lovely experience where we felt totally welcome travelling with a dog!

Absolutely amazing stay at The Twelve hotel in Galway. Monkey was treated like a king. This hotel goes above and beyond to make not only your stay enjoyable and memorable but your fur baby’s stay as well. Pet beds, bowls, toys, treats, pet exclusive menu, you name it, they have it. Highly recommend! Your lovely pooch isn’t just allowed in the hotel and room but in the restaurant for all your meals too. Talk about inclusive. Definitely 5 paws and Monkey Approved 🐾 shout out to the incredible staff- Barry, Alan, Pricilla, Rudy, Dylan, Joset , Lorena
