Ireland

Where to Stay

Where to Stay

You have many options for accommodations in Ireland, and thanks to Failte Ire­land’s star ranking system, you’ll have a pretty good idea of what to expect. Rooms over a bar room are not gen­er­ally con­sid­ered lux­u­ri­ous accom­mo­da­tion, but hav­ing a room near the place where you may do a lot of drink­ing has its advan­tages!

 

Cas­tles 

These four- and five-star properties are as lux­u­ri­ous as you would imag­ine. Typ­i­cally found in the coun­try the cas­tles offer high liv­ing and gor­geous sur­round­ings. A night in a cas­tle is truly a mem­o­rable event.

Country Houses

These upscale B&Bs are gen­er­ally out­side of cities or towns. The pro­pri­etors are often first rate chefs and for a fixed price (usually 30 to 50 euros) will prepare an exquis­ite and mem­o­rable dinner.

Hotels

Sim­i­lar in some ways to what you would expect in the U.S. - but dif­fer­ent in that they tend not to be the cookie cut­ter ster­ile hotels typ­i­cally found here. Instead, hotels in Ireland tend to have a lit­tle more char­ac­ter and offer more inter­ac­tion with the staff. Many are small family owned businesses that feel more like a bed and breakfast than what you'd expect from a hotel - and most hotels will include a break­fast that will leave you won­der­ing whether or not lunch is necessary!

Com­fort­able and rea­son­ably priced, B&Bs are the best way to get to know the locals. Costs range from 30 to 40 euro per night depend­ing on the time of year and loca­tion.
