dog friendly places to stay/UK and Ireland
This link was posted on another list -- I didn't know about this site and maybe others would find it useful!
I have learned however to call places in advance and not simply book online. I made a booking at a place in Chester that was included in another site and found after booking (and calling just to make sure) that they didn't take dogs at all. Sometimes there's new management etc. So always make that back-up call! ;)
