Prebook B&Bs

Jump to last reply

I am planning my second trip to Ireland, and we are planning on visiting the Republic, as well as NI.

Our first trip we stayed in hotels, as that was the package we bought. However, this time, we would like to stay in B&Bs. We do plan on booking hotels in Dublin, Belfast and Galway. As for the rest of the trip, we would like to "fly off the cuff." For this reason, I was wondering if we really needed to book B&Bs in advance?

We will not be traveling during the high season and don't mind staying off the beaten path. When we were there the last time (Oct. 2011), it seemed like there were B&Bs everywhere.

I need to also keep in mind that there might be anywhere from 2-5 travelers, so 1-2 rooms/stay.

My final question is...would it be better/less expensive/less hassle to either go through a company (CIE?) who has that style of travel or just book everything myself?

Thank you in advance!
