Finding somewhere to stay in Ireland can be stressful.

You know well that you’ll be off exploring for a good chunk of the day and spending as little time as possible in your room, but you still want somewhere that’s clean, good value, and that comes highly recommended.

Now, let me make something clear up front: this map isn’t a list of all the best places to stay in Ireland; that would be one big ass list and there are other websites out there that do that kind of thing way better.

What this map is filled with
  • Places that I’ve stayed, loved and would 100% recommend
  • Places my family and friends have stayed and loved
  • The best places to stay based on TripAdvisor and Booking.com top reviews

I used this on a recent road trip where I left booking each night’s accommodation until around 6 each evening and found it incredibly handy.

Now, the map below contains places to suit every budget; from hostels right the way up to luxury hotels.

Bookmark this page and then, when you’re planning your trip, whip it out, zoom in on the area that you’re looking to spend a night and browse the hotels, hostels and B&Bs in the surrounding area.

I’ve limited the number of places to stay to between 5 and 10 per town/village/city, to avoid you being totally spoiled for choice, which often just adds to the confusion.

In case any of you are wondering, I haven’t been paid by any of the locations on this map to include their business.

These places all come recommended in one way or another.

Naturally, this map of places to stay in Ireland has missed out on some great spots to rest your head – so I’ve left the comments section below open for your suggestions.
