There are hotels of various types, including those that are very opulent. Bed and Breakfast is a popular option. These restaurants often extremely pleasant, generally operated by families, and provide excellent value. There are independent hostels branded as Independent Holiday Hostels of Ireland, all of which have been authorized by the tourism board. An official youth hostel organization, An ige, exists as well (Irish for The Youth). These hostels are often located in isolated and picturesque locations and are primarily intended for outdoor use. Although there are approved campgrounds, there are fewer than in many other nations (given the climate). Although wild camping is permitted, it is recommended that you get permission—especially if you will be visible from the landowner’s home. Camping in a field with cattle is never a good idea. There are other unique accommodations available, such as lighthouses, castles, and ring forts.
