Irish B&Bs

I love Bed & Breakfast lodgings. Tom and I have stayed in them from Cape Cod, Massachusetts, to Sacramento, California. They are more comfortable than many hotels and since breakfast is important to us, how could we choose anything else when given the option? Getting a local recommendation on restaurants and sites to see is a big plus.

So when we went to Ireland of course we opted for B&Bs. We only stayed in one hotel in Dublin (and it was very nice, btw.)

Joy Harron from BandBIreland.com would like to introduce the readers of ~~~~~Celtic Voices to the Irish B&B experience. I'll let Joy take it away now:

So what is an Irish B&B Experience all about?

Most importantly - You are staying in an Irish family home where you will:

  • Experience the warm & friendly welcome of the Irish people
  • Draw on the local knowledge of your host and their family  
  • Enjoy the unique one to one experience, where more time is spent with you the visitor
  • Learn more about local Irish traditions and culture
  • Benefit from the convenient locations in towns, cities and the countryside across the island
  • Get real value for money

Make the most of the Bed & Breakfast Experience in Ireland and visit B&B Ireland’s website to plan for a relaxing and fun-filled break. Get out there and enjoy the wild beauty of the Irish countryside with a angling, golfing, walking, horseriding or cycling and much more - see our country and farmhouse properties.

See the sights with a city break in Dublin, Galway, Cork or Belfast…great places to visit all year round – our town houses give you the town and city feel. Properties are now classified, choose from Approved, 3*, 4* and 5* homes offering you an Irish experience at the level of standard and service you require.
Serving breakfast to guests
Most overseas visitors to Ireland choose B&B accommodation exclusively for their holiday here.
The latest consumer research shows that the level of personal care and friendliness experienced by overseas visitors staying in B&B’s is exceptionally high (Fáilte Ireland – Ireland’s national tourism body).

The feedback from domestic visitors shows that they find B&B’s “to be more informal and welcoming, flexible, rich in local knowledge, improved in terms of quality and standards, and good for experiencing home made food”. (Fáilte Ireland).
