This week was an exciting one for Bed and Breakfasts in Ireland as B&B Ireland released details of how they will categorise Irish Bed and Breakfasts depending on the services provided by the accommodation.

The nine categories are: Eco Friendly, Pets Welcome, Golfers Welcome, Food Lovers Welcome, Gaeltacht Experience, Farmstays Welcome, Adventure Seekers Welcome and Anglers Welcome. The categories are aimed to provide visitors to Ireland with a specialist stay along with providing a traditional B&B experience, resulting in a unique holiday for all guests.

To get your B&B categorised you have to be a Tourist Board approved Bed and Breakfast in Ireland and then you can voluntarily opt into the categorisation process. These categories will be allocated to B&B’s depending on their locations, the B&B owner’s local knowledge and advice along with the comfort of the actual bed and breakfast too.

We think this will not only make a stay in an Irish B&B tailor made for the guests, but it will also make finding the perfect B&B a lot easier. What do you think of the new categories?

    Any improvements that can be made to the Irish Bed and Breakfast sector are very welcome however remember it is still best to contact B&B owners to quiz them on exactly what is on offer and if your own specific requests and requirements can be met.
    My worry is that just because a B&B puts itself forward for one type of categorisation that they may be overlooked for another.
    For example if you have a B&B beside a famous golf course and a beautiful fishing river and maybe even on a great walking route will they be compromised if they enter themselves into just one category?

    I love Irish Bed & Breakfasts. Or, should I say, the Irish people who run B&Bs are simply wonderful. Lots of happy memories, especially from Co Cork and Co Kilkenny. I am looking forwards to seeing how this new way of categorizing them will pan out.

    The initiative of categorise Bed & Breakfasts based on their speciality is a real eye-opener. From customer point of view they have a clear overview of B&B’s that will offer what they are looking for and it will make it easier to choose. From the owner point of view they know exactly what the customer expects so basically a win-win situation. Great initiative!
