We Make Traveling to Ireland Easy

We provide you with a comprehensive property guide listing all of the B&Bs & Farmhouse B&Bs participating in the voucher program. There are more than 1,000 properties to choose from! The guide is organized alphabetically by town in each county so regardless of where you are in Ireland you will be able to find a B&B nearby. The guide contains pictures, descriptions and a list of facilities at each B&B along with their websites and contact information. You can make all your reservations before traveling to Ireland OR wait until you are in the country and "go-as-you-please" deciding from day to day where you want to go and where to stay. You can also upgrade B&B nights to city hotels or castle stays, or you can add an activity.

  • Price Guarantee: Best of all you are guaranteed that your Go-As-You-Please package is the most inexpensive available – at every time of year. 
  • Blackout Period: Virtually all B&Bs in Ireland close for Christmas and the New Year so a Go-As-You-Please Vacation is not possible at this time of year. For this reason we do not accept Go-As-You-Please bookings with an arrival date between Dec 14 and January 5.

Optional Upgrade: Irish Castle

You have the option of upgrading one or more nights of B&B accommodation to a stay in an authentic Irish castle. The choice of castles is listed below. All you have to do is pick a castle(s) and let us know what night(s) you wish to stay there. We will pre-book the castle stay(s) on your behalf, and provide you with a voucher(s) to present for payment on arrival.

There are other castle hotels in Ireland, but the selection above represents the absolute best value for money. The cost of upgrading 1 night from a B&B to one of the castles above will be between $45.00 & $80.00 per person, depending on your specific castle choice and month of travel.

Optional Upgrade: Dublin City Hotel

Upgrade one or more nights to a Dublin City Hotel. We recommend upgrading to a hotel if you wish to spend time in Dublin as there are no B&Bs in or near the city centre. You decide in advance which night(s) you want to spend in Dublin and we will reserve a city centre hotel for you. We recommend the following Dublin hotels:

  • To be right in the heart of Dublin City, stay in the 4-star Trinity Capital Hotel
  • For a property full of character and a short stroll from the center of town, stay in the 4-star Georgian Pembroke Townhouse.

After you have reserved your package online, let us know which hotel you prefer and we will reserve it for you on the night(s) of your choice. Dublin Hotel upgrades start for as little as $22.00 per person in Low Season.

Optional Upgrade: Medieval Banquet at Bunratty Castle

Join the Earl of Thomond in the splendour of the main guard of Bunratty Castle for a dinner experience not to be missed! Bunratty Castle, was built in 1425 by the Earl of Thomond. Following his tradition of hospitality, the world renowned Bunratty Medieval Banquet is held twice nightly throughout the year. Since 1963, the Ladies of the Castle, aided and abetted by the Earl's Butler, have welcomed guests from the four corners of the globe to dine at The Earl's Banquet at Bunratty Castle.  The entertainment provided by the world renowned Bunratty Singers is a fitting compliment to a mead reception, a four course meal, and of course good wine.

We provide you with open Bed & Breakfast vouchers that can be used at more than 1,000 B&Bs and Farmhouse B&Bs all across Ireland. You will receive a free guidebook that lists all the properties that accept the vouchers. You can reserve your accommodations in advance or simply Go-As-You-Please, booking your B&Bs as you travel around Ireland.

CREATE YOUR OWN IRELAND ITINERARY


With open B&B vouchers you create your own itinerary. Stay anywhere in Ireland, the choice is yours. Reserving B&B’s is easy. Look up the available B&Bs in the town you want to stay in, check out their websites, decide which one you like best and email the owner requesting a reservation. It’s that simple.

- For peace of mind we recommend reserving your first night's accommodation in advance of your arrival. During high season (June to August) and around Irish public holidays it may be a good idea to reserve all your accommodations in advance - particularly for larger parties travelling together.

- For your last night we recommend reserving a B&B that is not more than an hour from your departure airport. If leaving from Dublin you could upgrade to a Dublin City Hotel or spend your last night in Navan near the Boyne Valley, or in the coastal towns of Malahide or Howth.

- If departing from Shannon airport on the west coast then Ennis, Adare or Bunratty all make ideal last night stops. Staying in Bunratty gives you the option of ending your vacation in style by attending the ever popular Medieval Banquet at Bunratty Castle.

“Simply Lovely Vacation!”

Oct 31, 2018 by Jacqueline Murphy. Your Hometown: Parish, NY

The week with my granddaughter was wonderful! Anastasia did an outstanding job coming up with an itinerary to accommodate us in our short time in Ireland. The B and B's were excellent as well as the hotel! The rental car was perfect. Our self guided tour was better than we expected. I needed to contact Anastasia while in Ireland and she immediately responded to my question. Well Done!!!

“Outstanding Holiday to Ireland”

Oct 25, 2018 by Kevin Murphy. Your Hometown: Summerville, SC

Megan did an outstanding job of creating a custom 3-week vacation based on the information I provided to her. We basically toured the entire island in a clock-wise direction. All of the accommodations were outstanding! Although this was a self-drive trip (which certainly is a trip, driving in Ireland!) but Megan provided numerous points of interest for each of our 11 destinations. I felt the tour was reasonably priced and it went off without a hitch. Megan's attention to detail was fantastic. I would highly recommend Authentic Vacations and I would definitely use them again for any future trips to Ireland or the UK!

Oct 25, 2018 by Robin. Your Hometown: Moss Point, MS

My husband and I just returned from a 10-day trip to Ireland/Scotland for our 30th wedding anniversary. When I started looking at this trip, I came across this site and Jocoya Fox-Jones came across the chat. I told her what I was looking at and she planned the rest. Our trip was AMAZING and we couldn't have asked for a better person than Jocoya to have planned our trip. We've already decided that we will be using her again for our next adventure. She made our bucket list vacation a perfect one!!

Oct 16, 2018 by Sunny Holtzman. Your Hometown: Tel Aviv, Israel

This is the third trip I have booked with Jocoya Fox-Jones. Ireland, Iceland and now Japan. She has been consistently WONDERFUL, professional and has answered my every request quickly and so well. She is the BEST.

“9-Ireland Vacation”

Oct 9, 2018 by Maggie. Your Hometown: Missouri, USA

This vacation was surprise graduation gift for my two sisters who graduated from nursing school this Spring. We have all talked about traveling outside of the country, but we had never acted on these plans. I wanted to find a travel company that could help a novice traveler create a vacation that my sisters and I would remember. Thankfully, I happened across this site, and Jordan Elzerman! She took my travel requests and created the perfect itinerary for us. I don’t think the girls and I could’ve asked for a more perfect vacation! We’re already talking about “next time”. To any one who may feel reluctant to drive, I promise you that it’s not as scary as you think! We had at least one paid event every day that we were on vacation, and all the other time was free time that we could spend on whatever our hearts desired. It was the perfect combination of scheduled activities/free exploration.
