Call Irish Tours at 1-800-223-6470 and they will send you "Ireland Bed & Breakfast" and "Ireland Farmhouse Bed & Breakfast" free of charge.

I really like the Bridgestone guides by John McKenna-v. good for the really nice B+B's.Each year he publishes what he considers to be the 100 best places to stay,places to eat around Ireland.My husband and I are Irish and use his books if planning a weekend away.He updates each of his books each year.Try amazon.co.uk.I have also seen them selling in Dublin airport bookshops.Fodor's Ireland is also good.

Town and Country was the book I used. Picked it up at the tourist office in the Dublin Airport. They have a website. I think it is townandcounry.ie

I've been to Ireland 3 times and have always used the Town and Country book. They have a web site that has most of their properties.
http://www.commerce.ie/towns_and_country/
You can probably get the newest edition from them. I have an old one.

The book is one of the best ones that I've used, because it seems very complete. There are probably 2000 B&Bs in the book, all with pictures. It doesn't actually have recommendations, but that sometimes is good because what one reviewer might like, others may not. They do list some of the AA ratings for some (if they have them).

Hope this helps!

Bill

Look for Karen Brown's Ireland, also Alastair Sawday's Special Places to Stay in Ireland. A website to look at is www.tourismresources.ie and go to 'The Friendly Homes of Ireland' section. Be aware that 'B&B' covers a very wide range of accommodation from the statliest of manor houses to small modern bungalows with a price range to match. Happy planning!

Michael, If you want a complete listing of B&Bs in Ireland then the Town & Counrty that was mentioned previously has most of them listed. I got mine free when I called the Irish Tourism Board. If you want recommendations from a person who has been to each B&B to inspect them then I would go with Best Little Guide to Ireland. I used it two years ago and it was extremely helpful to my husband and me.
