My wife and I used to love B & Bs before kids! Some places don't allow noisy, running, silly kids!
I love B&Bs too. Stayed in so many when we were in Ireland. Great way to know what it's really like, and so much better than a hotel, I think.
Leif, I'm surprised, as most BnBs here are pretty child-friendly. Renee - you've been to Ireland! We're so near, but have never made it, despite our Irish connections (closer on my wife's side than mine). I'm talking about the republic - we have been to Belfast and the Antrim coast. BnBs are great for the personal touch and the one we stayed in over there was excellent. Breakfasts for giants!
