3 Adults??

Can 3 adults stay comfortably in one room in the B&Bs and hotels?? Thanks for your help!

Three adults can share a bed comfortably so I'm quite sure three adults can cope in a triple bedded room.

You'd need to check ahead of time to ensure that the place does have triple rooms available. It might not be comfortable because sometimes the third bed is really squeezed into a relatively small room.

Assuming that the 3 adults are three traveling companions, neither one couple plus another adult, nor a menage-a-trois, they probably can do OK in most places. One is likely to have a less comfortable bed than the other two, and some rooms will likely be crowded, but you can rotate the areas of discomfort. On the other hand, my wife and I sometimes travel with our adult son, and we always get separate rooms for us and him. And, if you are a menage, I am sure you can manage.

Many of our BB stays were called "twin ensuite" or "double ensuite" rooms, which included a double bed AND a single bed. There were some that were just 2 twin beds though.

The double beds are plenty big for 2 people. But you would want to check with each BB to see what size beds are actually in the room. Otherwise, you can try for triple bed rooms. But you might check out the "double" rooms and see what size beds are in there.

if you stay anywhere but an international business style hotel it is unlikely that you will be comfortable with 3 to a room.

even business hotels are much smaller than in the US and the standard 2 queen beds per room configuration is far from standard. in regular b&bs or hotels, it may be possible in some (although you may have difficulty finding one) but it is very unlikely that it would even approach the comfort you would see for 3 in a room in the US.

if it's one night and you are very close (like sisters or something) and can laugh about it than go for it otherwise get 2 rooms.

I'm a Flight Attendant who wants to take her parents on a wonderful trip. I'd like to stay with the folks since they're getting older. We'll be flying into SNN and staying mostly West and Southwest. Any large B&B references would be greatly appeciated. Thanks!!!

Many B&Bs have triple rooms - sometime called a family room. But don't try to squeeze 3 into a double or twin. Any B&B's website will clearly say if they have triple/family rooms. But most B&Bs are pretty small - only 2 to 4 rooms for rent, so even if you don't stay in the same room you will be quite close to your parents.

(Don't know quite what amyprib is talking about. "ensuite" has nothing to do w/ the number of beds. It means the bathroom is in the bedroom. Another term re baths is "private" which means you do have a private bath or shower room, but it is NOT in the bedroom. It is down the hall)

Hi Jennyann,

The others are correct. The only way for 3 to be comfortable in a B&B is if you get a triple room. A double room would be too cramped. My sister, boyfriend and I did this in England last year and it worked out fine. But, as someone else noted, 2 rooms would be even better - B&Bs are like houses - it's not like you'd be far from them in a room down the hall.

Your "wonderful vacation" will not be so wonderful if you are tripping over each other in the room!

m_kingdom2 wouldn't they just get on top of each other?

janis - I'm quite aware of what ensuite means, I was only simply stating what type room we had. I didn't mean to imply that ensuite enlarged the room or anything.
I'm just saying that some of our BB rooms had a double and a twin bed in it, when we had reserved a "double" or "twin" room. Some of those would have been big enough for 3 people - I'm not saying go with that choice because not all are that decent size, I'm just saying it can be possible.

Sometimes, no! At Brigowen B&B in Ballina (County Mayo) Marjorie just has a room w/one double bed, a single and a room w/two twin beds. So when you're travelling and you call ahead to reserve your B&B, tell them what you're looking for.

As janis writes: many B&B's have what they call a 'family room.' I stayed at one in Ross a'Veal (Connemara) in a room with a large double bed and two twin beds.
