For your tourism business to be approved as an Irish home B&B, there must be at least two, and no more than six guest bedrooms. The maximum number of bedrooms in the house can not be more than nine, including the family bedrooms.
In the case of houses with guest bedrooms without private bathrooms attached, there should be one bath and one shower provided for the first six persons accommodated, including the owner's family. If more than four guest bedrooms are provided, planning permission for bed and breakfast use is necessary.
