Ireland B&B rates

This may be a silly question but here goes....If I am quoted a rate at a B&B of $30 Euros per person, does that rate already include all the taxes etc.?

Thank you!

if you are quoted e35 per person for B and B, that is what you will pay. Most small B and Bs are not big enough to be registered for VAT etc, and those that are include any tax in the quoted price.

There is good value out there at the moment. I noticed that one of the most popular B and Bs in Ventry - 4 miles from Dingle - was advertising €27.50 pp at the weekend. I don't remember prices being that low in a long time.

A completely random search for B&Bs already reducing their prices produced this:



A reduced rate here, if you don't want breakfast:


And, these guys have Spring Specials/Recession Busters:


I, too, would feel very uncomfortable asking for a special deal at a B&B, but, was given a reduced rate at a very busy time in a Dublin B&B, on account of the room being very small. I had stayed there a number of times prior to that.

I have also noticed that trend. But I wouldn't ask for a rate drop for fear of insulting the host. I just initiate e-mail conversations before I book and see what turns up in conversation.

The full Irish breakfast in a B & B means I don't need lunch, so in effect, I'm saving money

Actually there are good deals out there at the moment. In relation to Dingle town Harbour Nights which is actually a Guest House is quoting 35 Euros app.


I agree with Soonas prices are very low but this is kind of expected with the current economic climate. Best bet shop around and of course don't expect great deals on Bank Holiday weekends or in relation to Dingle deals are hard to come by if you come during the Dingle Races :)

Agreed regarding prices dropping, we stayed at CIll Bhreac House just a couple of weeks ago and only paid €28 per person which was a steal considering its location.
