Touring Ireland in late July

Renting bikes in London then off to Ireland for 2 weeks in July. It has been 20years since I was last there. Anyone know if there will be any problem getting a cheap B&B off the cuff. When I was there last it was no problem except in the bigger citys and tourist areas to find a cheap B&B without calling for a reservation.

Rented a Honda NT700 from Raceways in London. I shopped around and they seemed to be pretty reasonable.

Some ideas (albeit somewhat contradictory) for you:

I was there last summer. It seems that the B&B's we found listed in the Frommer's tour book were a lot better than the ones we found on the fly. And for similar money too.

There are so many B&B's in Ireland that unless you are traveling on a major holiday, you should not have much difficulty finding something.

We spent a lot of time booking the B&B's before we left home. This helped us define our schedule and route. We would rather spend our casual time at home planning a place to stay than trying to find a place on the fly. We planned the first half of the trip at home. The we winged the second half. The second half of the trip was more stressful.

If you dont go to McCarthy's pub in Westport, Co Mayo, then you will have missed a great place to stay. Went there last year with a group of 12 mates (inc wives) and had a great stay. Highly recommended.
