    Reasons to Stay in an Irish B&B

    • B&B’s are situated in excellent locations from big cities and towns, to quiet villages and beautiful countryside areas.
    • Irish B&B owners pride themselves on their fresh home baking for guests on arrival and the home cooked full Irish breakfast each morning. 
    • Not just a room number, you are a welcome guest. The personal touch and warm welcome is unique to the Bed and Breakfast.
    • Draw on the local knowledge of your hosts and find out about all the best local restaurants, pubs, shops, attractions and activities.
    • Bed and Breakfasts now specialise in services provided for visitors such as private chauffeured tours of the local area, activity breaks in Ireland such as golf, walking, adventure breaks, farm stays, food lovers and much more.
    • Irish B&B’s can now be booked online with instant e-mail confirmation or directly by e-mail or telephone. Your host can even telephone ahead and book a recommended B&B for you in the next town. Many B&B’s do not require pre-booking so you can often travel as you please.
    • Bed and Breakfasts in Ireland are very safe and an excellent choice for solo travellers. Bed and Breakfasts are secure. Your hosts know your name and you can let them know where you are going and what time you will be back for piece of mind while you travel alone.
    • B&B’s are a great place to meet new people and fellow travellers. Imagine sitting in the dining room of a large hotel where guests hide behind their newspapers and compare that with the cosy and intimate atmosphere in a B&B where guests chat and mingle in the evenings over an Irish coffee or at breakfast over a delicious full Irish. You will arrive as a guest and leave as a friend!
    • Irish B&B’s are very good value for money and offer great special offers all year round.
    • Would you like to trace your Irish Roots? Stay in an Irish B&B in your old home town. Your hosts will know the local families and give you help and advice on tracing your Irish roots and details of who to visit in the local area that can help.
