Travelling from Belfast to Cork

Travelling by car from belfast to cork with my elderly mum- has anyone recommendations for a good bed and breakfast accomodation around the Dublin area, not far off the main Dublin to Cork road. Travelling on a Wednesday evening at end of October. Thanks for any suggestions.

Its doable on one fell swoop! about 5 hours all on motorway. Rathcoole is a village about 10 miles out from Dublin on the N7 [Naas Road] to Cork. Have a look at tripadvisor.ie/Hotels-g1389137-Rathcoole_Cou…

Thanks.I know it's doable.Its just that we are actually travelling on to Schull, so feel we need a stop and then get to Schull the next day in time to begin our week's house rental not too late in afternoon.

Oh in that case - take a break. Rathcoole should be OK. It will put you on the right side of the M50 morning traffic to set off. You could go further and look up somewhere in Naas. The N7 from around Rathcoole to Cork should be about 2h30 taking it easy and with a stop for a break after two hours or so you should be in Schull in the early afternoon.

You could continue on to Portlaoise - there's the midway hotel there, it's directly off the motorway so no searching for unfamiliar roads. It's only an hour from Dublin and knocks a good bit off the trip to Cork.

Actually just checked it's now the Maldron Hotel.
