B & B's and hotels on Ireland's West Coast

My husband and are planning a trip to Ireland in mid to late August, flying into Shannon. We want to visit Limerick, Killarney, Cork and other towns and would like to book some rooms but don't know where to stay. In 2011 we stayed at B&B's but they were in the country and would like to stay closer to town. Hotels are also an option for us. Getting in with jet lag we plan on staying close to the airport the first day. Any suggestions?

If you list the towns, people can make suggestions. August is high season and some of the better places may fill quickly.What's your nightly budget?

I too have learned to look for B&Bs that are within a safe walk into towns. It's generally easy to accomplish though sometimes I have to contact them and ask specifically because the information isn't on their website nor mentioned in reviews.

Hotels aren't always in town, so I'd suggest looking closely at locations too.

The drive from Shannon to Limerick takes about 20 minutes and its all either motorway type road or urban road. So my suggestion would be to drive straight into Limerick.

If you want central, then the Strand Hotel is on the Ennis Road (airport side of the city) in a perfect location overlooking the River. The food is excellent there. And its about 2 minutes walk to the city centre.

If you are looking for a B&B then Glen Eagles is in Vereker Gardens just around the corner from the Strand Hotel http://www.limerick.ie/Glen-Eagles Its about 5 minutes walk from the city centre.

Both of these are in a very safe, nice area (and very close to the maternity hospital!!).
