Q. We are flying to Dublin this fall, traveling through Ireland from November 7th through the 28th. Do you suppose we can get by without making advance reservations and just decide on hotels and B&Bs as we go day by day?
A. November is not a particularly peak travel time for Ireland, though I think you'd do well to make reservations at least a day ahead. And you can usually cancel reservations 6-24 hours ahead. Just make sure you know the lodging's cancel policies.
