Area description
The Twelve is located in the small, idyllic village of Bearna, on the Western coast of Ireland and just ten minutes from Galway, 'the City of the Tribes. Being in Bearna, at the gateway to Connemara, there are infinite opportunities.

For our corporate guests, The Twelve hotel offers a place to rest and strategise a million miles from any where, yet just a stone's throw away and always within a modem's reach.


True to the Region, True to the Season:- the finest hand-cured salmon, local black pudding, renowned Clarinbridge oysters, Connemara monkfish, whole Atlantic lobster and Galway Bay clams, Slaney Valley beef fillet, Oisín venison and other sensational ingredients which emphasize and showcase the best the area and season has to offer: This is West. WEST is like all of The Twelve, playfully seductive where service matters but not in a pretentious way. The rounded shapes of the circular booths and curved banquettes echo the bubbles in the comprehensive menu of delectable fizz served in the Champagne Bar, which itself has more bubbles encapsulated in its impressive glass base. WEST has something for every taste, and every wallet! As they say themselves in WEST: 'its all about having fun, celebrate food, celebrate wine, celebrate life’’
