Beds in Ireland

Bed sizes in Ireland and the UK are different to North America

At Discovering Ireland Vacation, we are often asked about the differences in Bed-Sizes between Ireland and other countries, in particular the USA.
Naturally, people who are accustomed to a certain type of bed, like to know what to expect on Ireland Vacations.

Not only is there a difference in the size of beds but there is also a very distinct difference in the terminology used on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean.

For example, a Kingsize bed in Ireland or the UK approximates to a Queensize bed in the USA. A considerably different bed!!!

The table below outlines the sizes of beds, the associated name in Ireland, and the approximate equivalent in North America.
If you have a particular preference, then please ask your guide at time of booking to ensure your satisfaction.

Room Types in Ireland

The terminology relating to room types can also cause confusion. When you stay at a hotel, B&B or Self catering vacations rental in Ireland, the following definitions apply to room types:

  • Single Room: A room for 1 person, normally with a Single bed but sometimes with a double bed
  • Double Room: A room for two people sharing 1 bed
  • Twin Room: Room for 2 people with separate beds (normally 2 x single beds)
  • Triple Room: Room for 3 people
  • Superior or Deluxe Room: A larger room but not necessarily with a larger bed
