The Irish Experience

 Those wanting a true Irish experience should stay in a private bed and breakfast.  In addition to meeting a lot of friendly folks--both hosts and fellow guests--they are quite convenient and usually better value than hotels.

How To Do It

Our favourite way to travel is to stop for a coffee or beer in the late afternoon and decide where we want to spend that night.  We then search and pick a likely looking B & B and contact them for availability.  We don't always get our first choice but we always have a pleasant stay.  This method certainly beats driving into the night to reach a pre-determined destination or cutting the day short because we arrive too early.

However, this method does have its drawbacks in modern, ever busier Ireland.  In high season the best B & B's are fully booked days or weeks in advance and in low season most B & B's are closed.

And by the way we have regretted every time we stayed in a B&B not approved by Failte Ireland.
