It's so exciting you'll be going on a road trip with your husband in April! :) Booking your first two and last night in Dublin is a great idea, as you'll be assured you're sorted for those nights.
When it comes to pre-booking your accommodation, it all depends on when and where you're travelling. For the busier areas and holiday periods, we recommend having an option already there. If it's outside of for example the school holidays, and in a more rural countryside area, you'll have no problem finding a lovely place to stay.
Claire from B&B Ireland has already provided you with some helpful tips and suggestions, and I have collected a few other threads for you below from other members who had a similar question:
- Accommodation in November and other useful information
- Do I have to make reservations in advance?
- Early September 2020 reservations
- Book accommodation in advance?
I completely understand you want to stay flexible, just in case your plans change along the way. :) You can always reach out to B&B's
along the way to see if they have available rooms as you go.
