elcome to the Green Book of Ireland. We describe this site as "A portrait of private hotels, castles and country houses of character " because, like a painting, our subjects are described against the background of their location. For that reason alone, this site is very much more than a directory; it is a site as much about Ireland's immense heritage and leisure opportunities as it is about finding a place of character in which to stay. And wherever you find a Green Book hotel, you can be assured of high standards of comfort and service, good company, fine food and the warmest welcome in the world -"Cead Mile Failte- a hundred thousand welcomes".
Like Ireland itself, you will find this travel site has a relaxed style but that does not mean it is simply about leisure travel. Those travelling on business will find that we can accommodate them and satisfy any of their other corporate needs: there are two splendid castles that lend themselves perfectly to conferences and incentive travel. And, indeed, any Green Book property will be happy to oblige the business traveller.
Ireland lends itself to touring like no other country. Your itinerary could take in an overnight here or a short stay there depending on what interests you about the location. This is why we present helpful details about each hotel and a description of the things to see and do (including golf courses) and the places to visit, all within the locality of the hotel. If you find it enticing, we take no credit for it, that's Ireland!
There are a thousand reasons why you should visit our country and when you do, we look forward to welcoming you at a Green Book Hotel in the traditional manner.
