Bed and Breakfast

Ireland is famous all over the world for a few things; Guinness, our most famous drinkable export is one. Riverdance, our most famous theatrical performance is another. But more than anything else, the Irish are known for their warm and welcoming hospitality, offered to people from all over the world. There’s no better way to experience this than at a traditional Irish Bed and Breakfast, which will add so much to your Irish holiday – and not just because it saves money!

Irish Hospitality

The vast majority of Irish B&Bs are family owned and family run guesthouses, where you’ll feel more like you’re staying with a long lost relative than with a tourism professional! From the moment you arrive, you’ll be made to feel right at home, even getting your own key so you can come and go as you please. The B&B experience is all about personal service – you’ll never want to stay in a hotel again.

Full Irish Breakfast


Although the bed part is sure to be more than adequate, the best part of staying in an Irish B&B is always the breakfast. Get ready for the best (and probably the biggest) ‘Full Irish’ – full being the key word – that you’ll ever have. Bacon, sausages, eggs, mushrooms, beans, fried potatoes, tomatoes, black and white pudding, tea and toast. You’re sure to be filled up until evening time – if you can finish the plate, of course.

Live Like a Local


When you stay in a B&B in Ireland, you are essentially living with a local. Many B&B owners live on their properties and are more than happy to provide expert local knowledge of the area. Some may even be willing to book tours or tickets for you if you ask nicely. If you’re in a more remote part of the country, this knowhow can be invaluable, so make sure to ask your host for any information you need to know before you go out exploring for the day.

Stunning Settings


B&Bs in Ireland are often more common in rural locations, although you’ll also find plenty in bigger towns and cities too with just as high a standard of hospitality. The biggest advantage to a country B&B, besides fresh from the farm eggs and home made bread for breakfast, is the stunning settings that many of them are situated in. It’s not uncommon to be right by the side of a lake with grazing deer, or with a panoramic view of a brooding mountain from your room.

Freedom to Explore


A stay at a B&B gives you more freedom to explore than you would in a hotel. You’re expected to come and go as you please, stay out as late as you want, and treat your accommodation as your home. You will be the only person that enters your room during your stay, so you have complete privacy as well as complete freedom.
