A new age for Ireland’s B&Bs after 40 years of rivalry
Ireland’s B&Bs have stepped into a new age of marketing savvy and solidarity
The leaders of B & B Ireland are also endeavoring to put a new spin on the B&B experience by introducing specialist themed vacations – from fishing, walking and golfing to heritage/culture visits and cookery and herb-growing classes. The Definitive Irish Bed & Breakfast & Self Catering Guide 2010 is also available for free online. And if you have never stayed in an Irish B&B home, the web site also includes a charming narrated video that illustrates what to expect.
In sync with its new outlook, B & B Ireland has also voted in a new and highly respected Chairperson, Margaret Cahill, former Head of the European and British offices for Tourism Ireland. Margaret also spent almost 20 years as Promotions Manager for the Irish Tourism Board in NY (then known as the Irish Tourist Board), so she is well versed on what appeals to American travelers. With Margaret at the helm, good deals and smart marketing will be synonymous with B & B Ireland from now on. For more information, visit www.BandBIreland.com.
