I’m vacationing in Ireland with my son from 2/20 -2/27. I plan to stay 2 days around Killarney, and 2-3 days in or around Galway. The first and last nights I’ll be at a hotel in Dublin.
If I don’t pre-book my B&B with vouchers, will I have trouble getting a B&B during that time?
Using vouchers on-the-fly is used to be the norm and for those who are adventurous, it’s great in the off season. My recommendation for prebooking is:
You want the center of town so you can walk to pubs — pre-book regardless of the season.
If you need more than one room in a B&B — pre-book!
Any of the popular tourist towns – pre-book!
If you’re traveling in the high-season then pre-book!
Most Americans I work with want solid reservations so booking as they go is typically not required.
