  1. It depends on when you’re travelling in Eire and whether you’re travelling alone or with a friend. During my last trip to the west of Ireland ( October, 2014) I went in the first ten days of October with a friend, and we stayed at B and B’s ( which lends itself to the authentic Irish experience!) I didn’t spend more than 60 dollars US on any given night.

  2. Ireland is the best place to stay. Ireland occupies with greenery parks and so many visiting places. Now it’s simple to get accommodation in ireland with low cost. I got hotelopia discount code at savingTree and I spend 50 ponds to stay one night.
