Hubby and I will be visiting for our anniversary next year. So far, I have found several B&Bs and inns that look incredibly romantic. Most are not on our intended route, but as I have had a few private messages asking for more info, and have seen a few posts on honeymooning in Ireland, I thought I'd share them here. Most I found on Alistair Sawday's "Special Places to Stay in Ireland" website.
I've also attached some higher end hotels and country houses. These are not places we look at, due to price and the fact that we are mere peasants ;-) but on a honeymoon you should certainly pamper yourselves more than we do!
I encourage anyone with knowledge of a very romantic, very private B&B or other lodging to post it here. Thanks!
