We are the official consumer brand of the Irish Hotels Federation (IHF).
The IHF was founded in 1937 as the official representative body for guesthouses and hotels in Ireland. Our website is privately run by the IHF in partnership with our 700+ partner hotels. When you book with us, you are booking with a secure and trusted website. Your booking deposit is held by the IHF until you arrive at your hotel, so you are never at risk of losing this deposit.
The Irelandhotels.com website was set up in 2002 by the IHF to give consumers the largest choice, regional spread and variety of accommodation in Ireland.
