Irish Bed & Breakfast The easiest, most-economical way to stay in Ireland

B&B Ireland is the consortium of Irish B&Bs throughout the country which allows us to search, reserve and order vouchers for the majority of B&Bs throughout the island. This new system has kept costs in line and over the past few years we have seen very little increase in the cost of B&B vouchers.

Irish B&Bs are the most economical means to travel throughout Ireland, staying in a family's home and enjoying a nice hot Irish breakfast before departing the next day.

Ireland's B&B Voucher System

When purchasing an Ireland Bed & Breakfast package, you will receive vouchers, one for each night and room. Reservations are now made online with a live booking portal, giving you instant access to available B&Bs matching your search criteria for each location and date. Gone are the days of emailing property owners numerous times, faxing or even calling to confirm reservations. Once confirmed, simply turn over your voucher after breakfast and you're on your way!

Vouchers save money, reduce the need for carrying cash and ensures your expenses are set before you set out for Ireland.

There once was a time where clients would say that they heard B&B owners would not accept vouchers but now that everything is automated with online reservations and digital payments, there have been no issues.

Purchase Ireland Bed & Breakfast Vouchers Direct with Lowest Rates

Irish Bed & Breakfast Voucher rates are calculated each date based on the currency exchange, ensuring you receive the most accurate rate available. Many tour operators set their rates for the year based on an expected currency rate for the year, increasing if the rates go up but never lower the rates when the USD rises.

Ireland B&B rates are per room, per night.

The Irish Bed & Breakfast Ratings and Rates

This has also morphed over the years with the current structure a little more complex than it was previously, adding new rates based on higher-cost areas like Kerry, Cork, Dublin, Northern Ireland and Galway City.

Rest-assured, all B&Bs are inspected and must meet a minimum standard of quality to join the program and get an official 3-, 4- or 5-star rating.
