  • 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.

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.

Our Vacation was outstanding. The hotel (City stay St. Augustine) in Dublin was centrally located to everything we wanted to visit. The staff there was courteous, and helpful.Our visit to Roscommon was grand, and our stay at Gleeson's B & B was also nice with great food.Authentic Ireland did a great job setting everything up, and making our vacation worry free.A million thanks to Lonna a job well done.

“5 days in Ireland”

Dec 5, 2016 by Dan Karns. Your Hometown: Dillsburg, PA

Authentic Ireland was referred to me by a customer/friend of mine....and... i am so glad he did. We worked with Shannon, one of the representatives, and i couldn't be more happy with the experience and expertise that she had regarding details of our trip. I told her when we were arriving and leaving Ireland, what were the "must do" things during our stay, and what kind of accommodations we wanted to stay in. within a day or two, she had a full trip package, with other recommended things to do while there, sent to my email. the price was very reasonable, and after going on the trip, i appreciated the fact we used Authentic Ireland to get everything set up. kudos to the site and staff, especially Shannon. anytime i had a question, she had an answer. regarding car rental, electricity usage, what kind of money to keep on hand, anything... she was so much help. thank you so much!, you made our 20 year anniversary "holiday" that much better! the only thing i can even think about regretting, was that we didn't spend enough time there we spent the previous week in London, and think we should have cut that shorter and spent more time in Ireland... but.... that can be fixed by another visit! thanks again! your friends in Pennsylvania!

“Ireland Adventure”

Dec 4, 2016 by Jesse. Your Hometown: Charlotte, NC

Had a great experience working with the Authentic Ireland associate! I probably asked 9 million questions (this being my first international trip I'd planned), and patience and courteousness definitely describes the person that personally handled my account.The trip was great as well, including an itinerary that was well chosen, then tweaked for us. Rental car was indeed perfect for our crew that was traveling, as well as the accommodations arranged for us. I'm more of a researcher, but the website definitely put me leaps ahead with suggested places to visit at our lodging locations, as well as places to stop along the way.One of the only things I would have done differently was the transportation for our time in Dublin. I was so glad that we did not rent a vehicle for Dublin, but the sightseeing bus tour passes were not the most convenient for our purposes, in retrospect. We would have been better served with normal city bus passes. I also would have passed on the castle stay in our trip, but perhaps we just caught them at a bad time, as everything was great there, except the smell of cat urine just on the outside of the side door near our room.Authentic Ireland definitely impressed both myself and the members of my family that joined us on this trip! Definitely recommend them! Really great trip and a good price!

“Wonderful First Trip to Ireland”

Dec 4, 2016 by Alyssa Sommers. Your Hometown: Mahwah, NJ

This was our first trip to Ireland. You guys did a wonderful job of taking care of all of the details in regards to hotels, sites to visit with passes and car rentals. Each hotel and bed and breakfast was wonderful. All establishments offered breakfast in the morning. They all had WIFI. After spending 2 days in Dublin we left for the west coast in the car we rented. We spent the next 6 days traveling around the west/southwest part of Ireland. Maggie was the person that we dealt with at Authentic Ireland and she was great- she noticed that our hotel on the last night was over 2 hours away from Shannon airport so she moved us to a closer location... and what a location a 5-star castle!! There are no other words then amazing!! When we come back which we plan to do... we will be staying there.

“Outstanding Vacation”

Nov 5, 2016 by Anthony M. Kolankiewicz. Your Hometown: Jerusalem

The company did an outstanding job of arranging our circumnavigational tour of Ireland and Northern Ireland over a period of 17 days. We did the driving ourselves with an upgraded rental car, which offered the utmost flexibility in sightseeing destinations and route options. Our accommodations were in a combination of country homes, B&Bs, hotels, and a couple of castles.. Even the weather generally cooperated over such an extended period of time; only one day and one evening of steady rain that interfered with our plans. Overall, it was a delightful vacation that encouraged us to return for catch the attractions we didn't have time to see. There were only two quibbles we would mention. First, some of the driving directions left a lot of details out, especially in trying to get through larger towns and cities, such as Galway. More details would have saved us lots of time. Second, we very much enjoyed every place we stayed with the exception of the Lissyclearig Thatched Cottage in Kenmare. Unlike all the other places we stayed, our hosts' main concern was saving money and doing everything on the cheap. No heat in the rooms despite a chilly, rainy night and two cloudy days -- very uncomfortable! No WiFi connection (the only place not to offer it during our entire stay in the country). Even the breakfast was second-rate. Few choices on the buffet table and canned fruit instead of the fresh fruit we received in every other location. Might be time to drop this inn from the inventory! Otherwise, a great trip that we would do again through Authentic Ireland.
