The Irish B&B Experience

The Irish Bed & Breakfast (B&B) experience is a wonderful way to stay with an Irish family and immerse in their Irish traditions and culture. If you want to add a bit of uniqueness to your vacation and meet the real people of the Emerald Isle, then consider staying in a B&B --you will always be greeted with the warmest of Irish welcomes.

 B&B’s are found in every village, town, city and countryside location Ireland and range from remote farmhouses, cottages, city townhouses or historic estates. Most accommodations include private rooms (some have their own private entrances) with en-suite facilities. They are a great value but most importantly, a real Irish experience! Hosts will welcome you into their cozy home (often with a nice ‘cuppa’ and fresh baked goods) and you’re treated like an old friend as soon as you walk through their door. Full of local knowledge, hosts often have the low down on what’s going on in the area and love sharing their personal recommendations on what to see or do.

 A hearty breakfast is included in the rate and often includes a choice of a “Full Irish” breakfast (or “Ulster Fry” if you are in Northern Ireland) or pancakes and fresh baked breads, cereals, oatmeal, fresh fruit & juices—endless pots of tea and coffee and friendly chatter are always on offer!

 Perfect for self-drive itineraries or rail tours--B&B’s can be arranged for the duration of your vacation or just one night—McKinney Shaw can pre-book or arrange for ‘vouchers’ to be used during your vacation.
