Question
Hi,
PLANNING A SELF DRIVE TRIP TO IRELAND OCTOBER 17 TO 30.WITH NO ITINERAY.  TRAVELLING WITH MY GRANDSON (23) NEED TO KNOW ABOUT VOUCHERS IN b&b WHICH SEEMS TO BE A YES AND NO SUBJECT ROYAL IRISH TOURS. WE NEED TWO BEDS OF COURSE AND IS PAYING IN EUROS CHEAPER THAN PAYING CANADIAN AHEAD OF TIME? i WILL HAVE YOUR BOOK BY END OF DAY..  THANKS

Answer
Hello Monique,

Visiting Ireland in October with no itinerary should be fine for the most part. It is always a good idea to book your first and last nights in advance. There is a Bank Holiday the last Monday in October, which can be busy through the weekend. If you are still in Ireland at that time and in a popular area you might consider reservations.

B&B vouchers will greatly restrict where you can stay. Finding a room with 2 beds will not be a problem. Since exchange rates fluctuate all the time it is impossible to know if you should pay in your currency ahead of time or get euros when in Ireland.

Hope you have a wonderful time in Ireland with your grandson.

I have visited Ireland 50 times since 1973 and know the Emerald Isle like the back of my hand. That`s why everyone calls me the “Ireland Expert”. Besides writing a book about Ireland called “IRELAND DREAM TRIP” - formerly "BEST LITTLE GUIDE TO IRELAND" - (which I update yearly and is now in its 20th edition) I also plan customized itineraries to Ireland for my clients. I really enjoy helping others plan their trips to the Emerald Isle and I love answering thousands of questions at various travel forums dedicated to Ireland. I have a forum at http://www.irelandyes.com...I`ve produced a web site to help people planning a trip to Ireland. "IRELAND YES" can be visited at: www.irelandyes.com...
