A Taste of Galway

The Twelve Hotel

‘Ireland’s Wine Experience’, ‘Ireland’s 100 Best Restaurants’, ‘Ireland’s Best Pet-Friendly Stay’, & ‘Best Sustainable 4* Hotel – Europe’.

Starting the year off with four awards already under the belt, the multi-Award winning Twelve is located just ten minutes from Galway city, nestled in the charming seaside village of Barna.

A jewel on the coast road from Galway to Connemara, The Twelve is a place for passing time, not simply passing through. Named after the rolling peaks that surround the stunning landscape, it’s the perfect hideaway, striking a fine balance between contemporary decor and historic charm.

Highlighting the bounty of the fertile soils and cold seas that surround us, West’s culinary team transforms our island’s harvest into art on a plate in a series of tasting menu dishes, where you will have your fine food expertly paired with a wine from the exclusive list – awarded “Ireland’s Wine Experience”.

On our tasting menus – From the Land, and From the Waters – you’ll meet winemakers, market gardeners, cheesemakers, vegetable growers, oyster farmers, and more. And if you’re lucky, our sommeliers will love nothing more than to sabre a special bottle at your table. An unforgettable wine dining experience awaits you at The Twelve, Ireland’s Wine Experience 2022.

Casual dining is the other luxury of choice offered as The Twelve features Pizza Dozzina and its magnificent stone oven from Vesuvius, Naples, the buzzy, award winning GastroBar known as The Pins and its very own Bakery Coffee Shop full of quirkiness and featuring fresh pastries daily.
