Ireland Bed & Breakfast - Ireland, Ireland
Ireland Bed & Breakfast

The link below will help you find the perfect Irish B&B for you!

Staying in an Ireland Bed & Breakfast 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.

6 Great Reasons To Choose B&B Accommodations:

  • Good, reasonably priced accommodation, widely available
  • Inexpensive with a good atmosphere. Personal touch with a local flavor
  • Staying with Irish families and getting to know the people, culture and landscapes
  • Freedom to decide where to stay, with a variety of different town, cities, countryside and farm locations
  • Quality of food - often sourced locally with regional specialities. Enjoy the full Irish breakfast cooked with local produce.
  • Enjoy the true Irish family welcome!

Hotel Location
Day 1: Depart the United States and relax on an overnight flight to Dublin Airport.  Ireland is five hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time and most flights from New York to Dublin are around 7-8 hours so you’ll want to sleep on your flight and arrive in Ireland ready to explore!  
Day 2: You will pick up your rental car at the airport and take off to your first destination; the Aspect Hotel in Kilkenny.  Keep in mind that you will be driving on the opposite side of the road so proceed with caution!  Visit the ancient city of Kilkenny that is now an enormous tourist attraction.  The streets are lined with adorably quaint pubs and restaurants for dinner or drinks along with boutiques for some shopping during the day.  Stop by the Kilkenny Castle for a taste of history and maybe enjoy a leisurely picnic on the grounds for lunch.  You will spend one night here before departing for the next leg of your journey. 
Days 3-7: You'll spend the next five nights of your Ireland vacation package at the 3- or 4-star Irish Bed & Breakfast of your choice.  Bed & Breakfasts in Ireland are known for being extremely welcoming and accommodating.  You will have hundreds of B&B’s throughout Ireland to choose from.  It is highly recommended that you book a stay before your trip so that you are guaranteed the location and property you want.  Having a local host is beneficial in many ways.  They can help you with directions, or suggest different places to visit around their home. 
Included in our $50 upgraded version of this vacation is admission to the Cliffs of Moher which is a once in a lifetime experience.  You’ll have the most spectacular views of the Galway Bay and the Aran Islands.  Also included are admissions into the Blarney Castle, and the Bunratty Folk Park.  Having a rental car will give you the freedom to take any day-trips you’d like throughout your time in Ireland.  You’ll be able to drive anywhere in Ireland and come back to a warm B&B for the night! 
Day 8: Today you will depart Ireland.  You'll fly out of Dublin Airport.
