There are so many different types of accommodation available in Ireland and the range is truly amazing. We only use approved accommodations that offer good value and service and are not tied to any particular accommodations. This flexibility allows you the client the choice to pick and mix to make that perfect vacation.
The most cost efficient type of accommodation after hostels. B&B’s are generally family style homes that offer a warm welcome and the host or hostess can offer help and advice on further traveling and local attractions. Rooms offered have private bath and offer a Full Irish Breakfast in the mornings. B&B's range from 3-5 star.
When used as part of the "go as you please self drive" we provide you with the B&B Ireland booklet and open vouchers which allow you to choose where you would like to stay in the country and for how long, offering the most flexible holiday possible.
This is somewhat of a combination, bigger than a B&B and smaller than a hotel, they are warm and welcoming on a more personal style. All rooms have private bath and the guesthouses are graded also from 3 - 4*. Guesthouses offer many different accommodation types from old Victorian or Georgian homes to modern purpose built homes.
From thatch cottages to modern homes, in locations all over the country from apartments in Dublin and other cities to homes with spectacular views offering a peaceful retreat. The properties are 3* - 4* generally and are from two to three Bedrooms, sleeping 4 - 6 people. They offer all the facilities of a home for your use. In the low season they can usually be rented for a weekend or for a week long stay from Saturday to Saturday. In high season they are rented generally on a weekly basis only from Saturday to Saturday. You can take them for 4 or 5 nights but you have to pay for the week which can be a draw back if you wish to tour more.
One of the most widely used types of accommodation in Ireland.
Located all over the country again they range from large to small and personal, from city to country with spectacular views. There are 4 grades of hotel. They are graded in a star rating by the tourist authorities. They are 2*,3*,4* & 5*. Grade 3* would be the most commonly used and offer a good rate, 4* are now very popular as they offer maybe a little extra space or facility.
The highest level is 5* which offers deluxe accommodation with a very high standard of service. There is also a new standard which is the boutique hotel, generally this is a mid to small size hotel but laid out in a contemporary fashion
This, for some, is a must - even for just one night. The romance of staying in a castle from the past its just like living history. These too are of different standards from 3* - 5*, some a little more authentic styling and some offering sheer luxury. We can recommend, book and advise on any of these properties. Most have on site facilities like golf, fishing and shooting and offer a real escape. The most well known are Dromland, Ashford and Adare Manor.
If you like something that little bit different and special, this could be for you. Accommodations range from lighthouses to historical homes fully restored and available for Self Catering. There are also elegant castles and small manor houses. They range in price but are more expensive than a normal self catering home. But if you want that something special for a family reunion or a larger group of friends you have the choice of various locations and special places where you can feel like lords of your very own estate, in its private setting.
Our student group who traveled to Ireland last May is getting together soon (before the senior nursing students graduate May 16) to celebrate our friendship and share memories of our memorable trip. They have really bonded as a group! Thank-you for making it a superb experience!
