Martin – Munich, Germany

Great scenery, wonderful overnights, super activites, awesome stories and no coaches. The perfect way to explore wonderful Ireland. Thanks again.


A key ingredient of the Wolfhound recipe that makes a Wolfhound Adventure Tour the best way to explore more of Ireland is the wonderful accommodation that we have chosen for our overnights.

We have chosen these cosy B+B's and small hotels not just for their comfort and quality but also for their locations.

From remote valleys to fishing hamlets, quaint villages to colourful towns, each of our overnights gives you fantastic options for things to do in the evenings.

Whether you wish to spend your evenings meeting quirky locals and enjoying traditional Irish music in old pubs or simply taking sunset strolls or relaxing with a good book, each night on tour offers you something slightly different.

In the event that our regular B+B's and Hotels are booked out or unavailable there's no need to worry, as Wolfhound has plenty of other options to the same standard nearby at each of our locations. Legendary warmth and welcomes guaranteed!

Here's a sample of some of our overnights just to give you a taste of what awaits you after each great day's adventuring in the wilds of Ireland.

Yeats Lodge (Co. Sligo)

Another wonderful Bed and Breakfast located under the slopes of mighty Ben Bulben mountain.

This B+B is just a few minutes walk from the famous church of Drumcliffe, last resting place of W.B.Yeats.

You can explore the old tombstones in search of Yeats' famous epitaph and then raise a glass to the immortal Irish bard in the Yeats Tavern, literally a stone's throw from our B+B. 'Cast a cold eye on life, on death. Horseman pass by.'

The Gougane Barra Hotel (Co. Cork)

This idyllic setting in the Sheehy Mountains of West Cork is one of Ireland's best kept secrets.

Run by the Lucey family for 5 generations, the Hotel is now managed by Neil Lucey and his wife Katie. It's a wonderful retreat hotel with fine cuisine and a forest park within a stone's throw.

From the window of the dining room you look out to the ancient shrine of St Finbar on the lake as the swans glide past and the swallos dive. You won't want to leave and you'll probably be back. *Summertime only.

Portmagee Heights (Portmagee, Co. Kerry)

This superbly finished B+B represents all that is great about the new Ireland.

Tastefully decorated in modern stone and marble this is a real discovery for Wolfhound. In summer as you breakfast at the great table with the bay doors opened to the garden you'll be surrounded by the calls of sea birds and the smell of wildflowers.

It's just a few minutes walk to meet the locals in the fishing village of Portmagee, our gateway to the Skellig Islands. Alternatively you can take an evening stroll to the coast and watch an Atlantic Sunset – magical.

Carneside (Giants Causeway)

Set on the windswept Causeway coast just a few minute's walk from The Giant's Causeway itself, this wonderful farmhouse is a great place to rest your head in the cosy surrounds of a working dairy farm.

Alice's home-made wheaten bread and selection of tasty cheeses is the best reason in the world to stay here and as you sit in the lovely dining room overlooking the coast you may not want to leave.

Doolin Activity Lodge (Doolin, Cliffs of Moher)

The Doolin Activity Lodge is another friendly family run overnight that features ski chalet-style accommodation to a very high standard.

Each apartment has its own living room and kitchen if you fancy staying out of the pub for the evening. Situated in the middle of Doolin village it's a short walk to any of the traditional pubs and restaurants nearby.

The Activity Lodge has internet access and does great pancakes and French toast for brekkie! Niall and Deirdre are sure to give you a warm and friendly welcome and might even let you pet their horse.

An Dun B+B (Inis Mean, Aran Islands)

A real getaway B+B on the unspoilt island of Inis Mean, one of world-famous Aran Islands.

To stay here is a chance to step out of the fast lane and unwind at the pace of the islanders. Time here is dictated by the weather and the coming and going of the boats to the harbor.

Teresa Flaherty is your friendly host in this cozy family run B+B with stunning, unspoiled views out over the stone walls and across to Inis Mor and beyond to Connemara.

We often have home-made dinner here after a day or two exploring more of the Arans. And Teresa's homemade scones are to die for!

Davitt's Guesthouse – Kenmare (Ring of Kerry)

Right in the centre of the colorful town of Kenmare, Davitt's Guesthouse has luxurious rooms and friendly staff. There's wifi and wonderful food available in the restaurant where often a local harpist plays for you and Mary Davitt always has time for a chat.

One of the best breakfasts en-route awaits and in the evening there's a great choice of local pubs nearby for music and song. (also some great stores for retail therapy just down the street but that's a secret!)

Waterfront House (Co Sligo)

One of the finest guesthouses on the West Coast of Ireland, Waterfront House is a wonderful overnight with huge rooms over-looking Kilalla Bay.

You're guaranteed a friendly welcome from Martina on arrival and a fabulous breakfast as you watch the crashing Atlantic waves. Be lulled to sleep by the ocean and relax in the nearby hot sea-weed baths if you wish.

And of course say hello to Rolo – the family hound!

Tower View Guesthouse (Dingle – Co.Kerry)

A short stroll from the hustle of Dingle town, Tower View is a gorgeous modern Bed and Breakfast where you'll find peace and quiet, lovely views across Dingle Bay, free wifi and yummy bagels amongst the other breakfast treats.

Your native Irish speaking hostess Mary will look after you with a friendly smile and local brogue and may even introduce you to the animals on her hobby farm in the garden.

The town has a great pubs with very tasty Guinness, friendly staff and well-priced cuisine from fresh seafood to locally produced lamb.

As we spend a double overnight on our 6 Day Southwest Adventure you'll be perfectly placed to explore more of the 56 pubs in the town or wander the multi-colored houses and shops in search of arts and crafts.

Dingle Bay Hotel (Dingle, Co. Kerry)

A warm and friendly hotel in the heart of Dingle town.

Just a hop skip and a jump from the craft stores, traditional pubs and Dingle's multi-coloured beautifully photogenic harbor, the Dingle Bay Hotel offers a luxurious overnight stay with a local welcoming smile as standard.

Great food in Paudies Bar beneath the hotel and the most helpful staff in Ireland. The Dingle Bay also has the best Irish Breakfast buffet en route.

Island View B+B – Roundstone (Connemara)

A really friendly overnight awaits you at Island View -Roundstone. Your host Maurice treats all his guests to a truly Irish welcome with a friendly smile and a warm cup of tea on your arrival.

Great wifi and views across Roundstone Bay to Inishnee Island come as standard.

There's tasty fresh seafood in Roundstone, creamy pints and also traditional Irish boats to photograph -apart from the world-famous views back to the Twelve Bens. You won't ever forget the feeling of sipping a pint on the wall above the harbor as the last rays of sun caress the mountains of Connemara in the distance.

Accomodation Upgrade!
If you are booking a private trip and would like to stay in more luxurious surroundings there are plenty of Manor Homes and small Castles not too far from each of our regular overnight stops. Nothing beats the local feel of our regular overnights but if extra luxury is a must please don't hesitate to ask. Ireland has many hidden gems waiting for you.
