The Ireland Bed & Breakfast package offers travelers the complete flexibility of creating their own itinerary. You can select your accommodations ahead of time, or take advantage of the flexibility of choosing them along the way. Enjoy your choice of accommodations from big cities to small towns to quaint villages to countryside manors. All of the B&Bs pride themselves on providing their guests with a fresh, home-cooked full Irish breakfast each morning and quality accommodations that cater to every need. At a B&B, you are much more than just a room number, you’re a welcomed guest.
Draw on the local knowledge, personal touch and warm welcome of your Irish hosts. Learn about all the best local restaurants, pubs, shops, attractions and activities. Your hosts specialize in the best services available from golf to walking tours of the area, to adventure breaks and much more.
Why Stay in a B&B?
Most bed and breakfasts are owned by the B&B operators themselves, who usually live on the premises. It's natural to expect that B&B operators who live in their own B&B's will bring a different perspective to the job.
At B&Bs, "customers" are truly guests, and it shows. The B&B owners will gladly help you find the best restaurant in town, the best pubs, point you to the best tourist attractions and local amenities and much much more.
Many B&Bs depend on word-of-mouth recommendations. Combine those two factors and it's easy to see why B&B owners go out of their way to make sure your stay provides some great memories of Ireland.
B&B check-in is between 3-6pm.
