Practical information : Accomodation Ireland
Budget & Tips
Ireland offers a complete range of accommodation. No need to worry about hotels, bed & breakfasts, youth hostels, farmhouses, campsites... Ireland is also a perfect destination for "woofers". In a few words, it's the opportunity to be housed and fed in exchange for your work on an organic farm.
As for the budget, you have to count from 15 € to 40 € for a bed in a dormitory in a youth hostel, from 100 € to 200 € for a double room in a Bed & Breakfast and from 200 € in a high end hotel. On weekends, prices are much higher than during the week.
Please note that by calling the establishments directly, you will get better prices than on the online booking sites.
The vast majority of establishments take credit cards, except for a few Bed & Breakfasts and small structures in rural areas. Please note that in Northern Ireland, as the currency is the pound sterling, a commission will be charged for each payment.
To be booked
In the very high season, between June and September, it is necessary to book your accommodation, especially around the major tourist sites of the country.
What's very local
Bed & Breakfasts abound in Ireland, even in the most remote areas. It is an excellent way to meet the locals; the owners are usually small families or retired couples, happy to chat with travelers. Sometimes you can have the same comfort in a B&B as in a big hotel, but for much less money.
For food lovers
In the Bed & Breakfast, the breakfast is systematically home-made and it is often very consistent. The Irish breakfast, a real good plan!
As in all public places, smoking is not allowed in hotels in Ireland.
