    Ireland Hotel Travel Guide

    When people speak of Ireland, it often conjures up images of rolling green hills, ancient castles, rowdy but friendly pubs, and leprechauns protecting their pots of gold. While the question of whether leprechauns actually exist remains, the beauty of the Emerald Isle is no fairy tale. Many who visit this beautiful land become enamored by it.

    The culture of the people of Ireland has been developing for thousands of years with records going back as far as 6,000 years. Tradition is important to the Irish, including traditional Irish music and dancing. At the heart of every town is the pub. For the Irish, pubs are not just a place to grab a pint, but they are also a place to share and experience the heart of social, cultural, and musical life with others.

    The Irish have a reputation for loving to party and to hold celebrations, and this is a stereotype that the Irish embrace. The Kinsale Gourmet Festival and the Dublin Theatre Festival are great events held each year, but the Irish love any good excuse for a party.

    When to Go

    When traveling to Ireland, expect rain in the spring and fall. Days during the summer are more often than not comfortably warm without being hot. It is for this reason that summer is peak tourist season on the Emerald Isles and is the most difficult time to get into the hotels in Ireland, so book in advance.

    While the weather is at its harshest during the winter, the season is often the time to book a cheap Ireland hotel deal through Expedia and get rooms at special discount rates. During these months, particularly in Dublin, you can find the top prices for cheap hotel deals in Ireland.

    Two major events draw a lot of people to Ireland: The St. Patrick's Day Festival takes place on March 17 in Dublin, and a smaller one takes place in Cork, though the entire island celebrates. In October, Cork holds the Cork Folk Festival, and in mid-September, you can experience the Dublin Fringe Festival. When looking for the best Ireland hotel deals and Ireland hotel packages, make reservations early, particularly if you are planning to visit Dublin.

    You will find Ireland hotels to be warm, friendly places, and you will love staying in them. You may never want to leave.

    "Excellent Hotel "
    Great hotel on corner of O'Connell Street. Walking distance to all! Quiet, even though outside street construction was going on. The windows are sound proof! Great A/C for warm evenings. Breakfast/lunch/dinner was fantastic. We had a 6AM bus tour and breakfast room was open for us for at 5:30am. Excellent staff. Clean rooms.

    "Fun vibe in Dublin"
    Great place for a stopover in Dublin. We went with 3 teenagers, and it was fantastic that we could go down to play pool/have a drink while they flopped on their bunks and took advantage of the wifi. Fantastic staff-one of our daughters left behind a bracelet and the Generator staff found it and sent it to Canada for her. Only two small things could be better-the bathroom in our room was showing its age, and the door to the little balcony didn't open-would've been nice for fresh air with the heat. We will definitely be back if we find ourselves in Dublin again!

    Quite far from town but a nice hotel. Service in dining room was slow. Had to get up to ask where I could get coffee. Then, where to get toast etc. Not prompt service. Upon arrival, was given a room that was very noisy. When I asked if there were other rooms available they moved us to a quieter area of the hotel and gave us a larger room.

    "Close enough to visit Kinsale ; my mum's origins. "
    Great experience. Local hospitality fantastic. Local folk of Cork and Kinsale well beyond fantastic. Only going not the English mile but the Irish mile. ' tis 20 minutes walk to Blackrock observatory from Cork - I think not . It was 1 hour 15 minutes there and back. According to my I phone it was a total of 11,8 kilometres. Well, there we go , great all the same. At least we visited the land of our Irish mothers and what a great place to be raised. Now I know why I love the sea and boats !

    "Special experience!"
    This hotel is a joy in every way. It is comfortable and luxurious and the breakfast is astounding. What really makes this place are the people. Everyone we encountered was so friendly and helpful. We felt so welcome. One tip: Make sure that you are booking a room with an included breakfast. Our breakfast wasn't included, and we were a little dismayed when we were charged 40 euros for it.
