In these modern times of cut-price Air BnBs and increasingly comfortable hostels, it's easy to forget about the simple charms of a humble bed and breakfast. 

Ireland boasts a huge number of B&Bs of various shapes and sizes and the best one in the country was revealed yesterday at the AGM of B&B Ireland. 


The winner was revealed as the Joyce family's Springview Farmhouse in Urlingford, Co Kilkenny. 

Owner Eileen Joyce told the Irish Independent :

"I would like to thank my guests for their lovely reviews and B&B Ireland for the recognition this award gives to us and our farmhouse."

The awards shortlist was based on reviews posted on and the winner looks like a pretty decent place to stay. You can find out more about the Joyce home here.
