Hotels in Ireland
Search Ireland hotels with up-to-date availability and book a hotel in Ireland.
You might have read that sometimes there are more tourists in Ireland than there are residents, and you might have thought that is not possible. Well, we are here to tell you that it is possible – and anyone who has visited Ireland during the busy summer season will confirm it. Especially in Ireland’s biggest tourist cities – like Dublin and Cork – you will find the streets full of map-holding, camera-toting tourists, all of whom are probably trying to see the same sights that you are trying to see. You will find that patience is a must.
When you are tired of fighting the crowds, all you really want is a place to relax and unwind after sight seeing – which is where hotels in Ireland come in. Anywhere with as many tourists as Ireland hosts is bound to have a huge number of hotels in which to house them all – and Ireland does. But do not wait until the last minute to book your hotel or you will find yourself with very slim pickings or paying a fortune for your room.
Of course, if you can be flexible with your Ireland vacation planning, you can avoid the largest crowds – not to mention the highest prices – by traveling in the low season. Everything in the tourism industry has a high season and how season, and hotels in Ireland are no exception. The exact dates can fluctuate, but the high season is roughly late Spring through early Autumn and you should expect to pay much higher prices for everything during that time. Visiting during the low season will save you money, which can be worth it even if you end up getting hit with rougher weather in Ireland.
Ireland hotels are going to range from the most basic 2 and 3 star places which might be family-run and feel more like B&Bs to the most luxurious 5 star hotels where you will be waited on hand and foot. They will also be dotted all over whatever city you are visiting – some will be in the center of everything, and some will be a short drive or bus ride away in a peaceful rural setting. All you need to do is decide what your preference and price range is and that will help you narrow the long list of Ireland hotels down to just the ones that suit your needs.
In order to further narrow the list, the best place to start is to plug your travel information into the search engine on this page so that you are only reading through descriptions of hotels in Ireland that have availability the nights you want to stay there. It would be more than a little disappointing to fall in love with a hotel only to find out later that they have no vacancy!
