The thousands of bed-and-breakfasts in Ireland provide the most affordable accommodations and a more interesting experience than some of the rather bland midpriced hotels. In our experience, most bed-and-breakfasts in Ireland are extremely well run. In the past, a bed-and-breakfast room with its own private bath (known as an en suite room) was something of a luxury, but such rooms now seem to be more common than those with a shared bath. Ask if you're not sure.

Among the castles and historic properties—some of them quite expensive—that take in guests are Adare Manor (in Adare), Ashford Castle in Cong, Marlfield House Hotel in Gorey, Park Hotel in Kenmare, McEvilly's Cashel House Hotel in Cashel Bay (near Connemara), Longueville House in Mallow, Dromoland Castle in Newmarket-on-Fergus and Waterford Castle on the Island Ballinakill (in Waterford). And don't neglect farmhouse accommodations—almost always clean, friendly and reasonably priced.< Show Less
