what time is the Irish Breakfast usually served?

In all the B&B's and hotels that include the traditional Irish breakfast, I haven't found a serving time. Could anyone let me know the average time?

Normally between about 7:00am & 10:00am but it might be earlier or later depending on the B&B/hotel

They will tell you when you arrive at the B&B, and may ask what time you would like breakfast. They often serve breakfast later on Sundays than the rest of the week.

From my experiences, Hotels usually serve full Irish breakfast 08:00 to 10:00, absent other arrangements. Most B&B's are more flexible with starting time (07:00)
The B&B Owners / Operators do the whole thing, whereas Hotels have a cook-staff and a wait-staff who don't live there. I've had success getting reasonably early breakfasts at several B&B's for the morning of my departure (from Shannon).

And if you have a too early departure time, many will leave you breakfast (cereal, milk, juice, bread for the toaster, yoghurt) if you make arrangements the night before.

Oftentimes, if staying at a B&B, you will be asked to choose a time for breakfast between 7-10am. Due to dining space limitations and to the fact that the B&B cooks breakfast to order there often needs to be some staggering. I stayed at a B&B in Cashel where my first two time picks were taken so we actually stayed in bed longer and had the breakfast right at the time we were told to come down (amazing breakfast I may add ). Hotels are way more flexible; at 7am typically the spread is out for the picking.

Thanks SO much. We are overdoing it in our itinerary, so an early time is key. I appreciate the help.
