Finding B&Bs in May

We're planning a trip about 12 days for late April early May. We like to travel at our leisure so I'd rather not book any B&Bs beforehand. Will we have problems finding B&Bs with vacancies during this time?

Most B&B are open by the time Easter rolls around, but it'll really depend on a couple things - where are you going and how big is your party. If going to bigger towns (>5000 people) and just two of you, you'll probably find something in or near village centres without reservations.

I agree. If only two of you, you should have no trouble getting accommodation on spec at that time of year. Go for it, you won't be stuck for a room.

You may not have a great choice but you won't have to sleep in a haystack either.

you will have no bother at all finding a bed and breakfast in May wherever you go in Ireland - its a quiet time of year and there are plenty of bed and breakfasts to go round. I would not worry.

No one has yet mentioned the Bank Holiday the first Monday in May. Since that gives the Irish a long holiday weekend some places will and do fill up. Depends on where you will be. There are deals to be had by booking 2 or more nites in one place. Look into that before deciding to go totally reservation-less.

Exactly, Sally. And it's also a European bank holiday too (May Day??) so it will be busy. Well, before the economy got into trouble, it would have been busy! Suggest booking ahead too.
