Accommodations

Apartaments

If you are not one of those people who moves from town to town after only a couple of days, if you prefer to get to know a place more slowly, or if you just appreciate only having to unpack once and then taking day trips from one centrally-located home base, you are going to really love the idea of renting apartments.

This type of accommodation will give you the freedom to really explore the area more fully, without any pressures of time limits or thoughts of finding a hotel in the next town. An apartment rental is the perfect home base from which to make day trips into the countryside or to nearby cities and sights.

Speaking of apartments having their own kitchens, if you are a budget traveler this is a great way to save money when you travel – cook at least some of your own meals. Many towns in Ireland have great local food markets and shops where you can pick up everything you need to cook for yourself. And cooking for yourself is always going to be cheaper than eating out all the time. Apartments can also be a money-saver if you are traveling in a group and can split the costs between everyone in your group.

Staying in one place for longer than a few days gives you a chance to really get to know it – to find your “local” pub, go there every afternoon and make friends. There is no better way to make sure your vacation in Ireland is memorable than by making personal connections, and having an apartment in Ireland is a great way to do that.

Country Homes and Farm Homes

There are hundreds of country homes and farm houses offering bed & breakfast on a daily or weekly basis with other meals often provided. This type of accommodation gives visitors the opportunity to share in the life of an Irish family in an urban or country setting. They may live in a Georgian residence, a modern bungalow or a traditional cottage. A farmhouse holiday again gives scope for meeting people and is especially suitable for children.

All homes and farmhouses that have been inspected and approved by Fáilte Ireland are listed in the official guide, available from the tourist office. In addition to this, the Town and Country Homes Association and Fáilte Tuaithe, the Irish Farmhouse Association, produce their own annual guides to their members’ houses. These are also available from Tourism Ireland in Britain and from tourist information offices throughout Ireland.
