Ireland Bed and Breakfasts
Discover Ireland Bed and Breakfasts
When we think of Ireland, several stereotypes tend to leap into our heads: shamrocks, leprechauns, potatoes, Guinness… While these are all things that probably will feature in an Irish break (maybe minus the leprechauns!), the Emerald Isle has much more to offer. From the sweeping coastlines of the North West to the rugged scenery of Connemara and the busy streets of Dublin, if you’re planning a break at a bed and breakfast in Ireland, you’re in for a real treat!
Dublin is the capital city of Ireland and thus receives the most press. Visitors to the city can visit the Book of Kells, take a tour of Kilmainham Jail and enjoy a lively trad session in a Temple Bar pub. Dublin also offers great shopping on Grafton Street, and more than a few decent pints of Guinness! Other cities to explore from an Ireland b and b include Galway, home to the annual races that draw the crowds, and close to the wilds of Connemara, with its stone walls and vast spaces echoing remnants of an Ireland from long ago. Visit Cork, at the country’s southern-most tip, or head north to Westport, where Matt Molloy's bar will welcome you in with a blazing fire and some live music.
Don’t let the Irish rain put you off – if you’re seeking some fresh air and scenic walks close to your bed and breakfast Ireland can offer this in abundance. For a taste of the coast, head north towards Malin Head, the country’s most northerly point, and spend some time on the beaches of the Inishowen Peninsula. If you’re on a budget, book a cheap B&B in Ireland in a small country village where you can meet the locals and enjoy a true taste of life in the country.
Top tourist attractions and experiences include kissing the Blarney Stone, taking in the vast landscapes of the Burren in Co. Clare, experiencing a game of hurling and hearing the locals speak their native tongue in one of the Gaeltacht areas in Galway, Cork or Donegal. For couples seeking a romantic break in a B&B Ireland is a great choice. There are opportunities for endless walks on empty beaches, long lunches in intimate pubs and some lovely luxury guest houses will ensure you can enjoy some quality time alone.
No matter how you spend your days, the warmth of the locals, the constant welcoming lights of a thousand cosy pubs and the never-ending barrels of Guinness will all combine to ensure that your trip is one to remember – to be sure, to be sure!
