Hey,
we will stay from 14.07.2018 till 20.07.2018 in Ireland. We have alredy booked the flight, but not yet the accommodations. We are planning to travel around by car and stay, where we like it. Is this possible in July or is it recommended to book the B&Bs in advance?
Thank you for your help!
Kind regards
Barbara

Hello Barbara, 

So exciting that you're planning on exploring Ireland this summer! Staying in B&B's is a wonderful way to really get to know the island, the culture and the people. :) 

Since you will be visiting us during peak season it can be busier than usual, so I would recommend booking your accommodation in advance. This way there won't be any surprises, and you can simply enjoy your trip without having to look for a place to stay. In the following thread there is some handy information from B&B Ireland about booking your accommodation before travelling as well: 'Reservations in October'
You can find all tourist board approved B&B's on our website, as well as on the B&B Ireland page. 

Have you planned your route around the island yet? Take a look at our favourite itineraries for more inspiration and ideas, as well as our vehicle rental page for more information about renting a car and driving in Ireland. 

Hope this helps! :)

Hello Melin
Thank you very much for your helpful answer and the links. 
We are looking forward to visit this beautiful country. (I have already been there 25 years ago :-) and I hope it didn't change a lot of things.)
Kind regards from Switzerland

Hello Barbara,

We are always happy to help and look forward to finding out what you plan to see and the places you have decided to add to your itinerary for July!

A rental car is a super way to get around the island of Ireland, giving you the flexibility to take the day at your own pace.

Have you decided on a possible route that you would love to take?

Martin

Hi Barbara
We hope your trip includes the Causeway Coastal Route in the North of Ireland, a must see road trip and Lonely Planet's number 1 region to visit in 2018!
If you're coming this way we would love to accommodate you in our luxury B&B in Portrush Shola Coach House B&B, we are a 20 minute drive from the Giant's Causeway World Heritage Site.  At this stage we have limited availability remaining between 14-18 July 2018 so would recommend you book sooner rather than later directly on our website.
We look forward to welcoming you.
If you have any questions just let us know, we're happy to help.
Kind Regards
Sharon & Dave

Hi Sharon and Dave
No, unfortunately we don't have enough time to visit the North of Ireland. But you are right. I have already seen the Giants Causeway and it was very impressive. If I come back another time, I will be pleased to book a room in your accommodation.
Kind regards
Barbara

Hi Martin
No, we haven't decided, which route we will take. We will flight to Dublin, rent a car an drive to the Cliffs of Moher. Then we drive to the south of Ireland, drive back to Dublin and stay there for 1 - 2 days. Can you probably recommend an accommodation, which is close to the Airport an not too far away from the City? (We'll fly back at 06.00 in the morning :-(. )

Kind regards
Barbara

Hi Barbara,

The Cliffs of Moher are a super place to start your time on the Wild Atlantic Way!

As you travel south, the Southern Peninsulas and the Haven Coast have plenty of things to see and do that you will wish you were here for longer.

The final stretch up to Dublin brings you into Ireland's Ancient East, home of the Wicklow Mountains a marvellous place to drive through and stop to take in the views.

Have you travelled around that part of the country during your last time with us?

Regarding accommodation close to the airport, please have a look at our accommodation search pages. I have pre-selected Swords which is close to the airport, about 10 minutes drive. Please feel free to change the destination if you need to.

There are also hotels at the airport that may be an option, this would allow you to drop your rental car off the night before. With such an early flight, one less thing to worry about!

Martin

Hi, Barbara!

How was your holiday on our island? I'm so curious about the route you took and the accommodation you choose during your stay.
I'm looking forward to reading more about your trip and if you managed to take some photographs of your trip, it would be great if you share them with us!

Hoping to hear from you soon,

Francesco

Hi 
We spent 10 great days in Ireland. We have booked the B&B in advance but I think  it wouldn't have been necessary. We started in Glendalough, drove down to the South and up to Ballyvaughan. We saw and visited plenty of nice and historical interesting sites and the people were very kind and helpful. But to be honest, 10 days were too short.
Anyway, one day we'll come back and spend more time in your lovely country.
Thank you very much for your help and recommendations.
Kind regards Barbara
