It's lovely to see that you are planning a trip to Ireland for the first time. :)
Yes we do! Ireland is a dog-friendly destination. Selected hotels
, guest houses and B&Bs happily accommodate pets, so there's every reason to take your dog on holiday with you. ;) B&BIreland
has over 150 members who accept pets and many self-catering properties are now pet-friendly: imagineireland.com
Also, I would recommend you to have a look at bringfido.com
as it is a great website where you can find accommodation and helpful information regarding bringing your dog to Ireland. This link
, is about dog-friendly beaches in Ireland. ;)
I hope this helps. Let us know if you have additional questions.
