Hotels in Ireland
From quaint comfort in family run B&B's to opulent luxury in a centuries-old castle, hotels in Ireland have much to offer.
For those travelers looking for budget accommodation, Ireland's hostels are a great way to go. There is an abundance of hostels in the big cities of Dublin, Cork, Galway and Belfast, and it is usually easy to find one off the beaten track too. Most offer clean facilities and basic amenities, such as bike or surf rental.
Another option for affordable hotels in Ireland is a family run B&B or guesthouses. Most rooms will have en-suite bathroom facilities and many accommodations serve a delicious Irish breakfast and afternoon tea with scones. The woman of the house, or Bean an Tí, is usually a great source of local knowledge and folklore.
Some of the best hotels in Ireland are located in breathtaking old castles and manors. Many offer spa facilities, gourmet dining and links golf courses. Adare Manor in County Limerick, Ashford Castle in County Galway, and Doonbeg Hotel and Dromoland Castle in County Clare are our stunning options for old-world luxury.
