Fitzgerald's Irish Bed & Breakfast offers Irish hospitality in a unique 16-room French Tudor built in 1937. You will be charmed by its unique castle-like architecture. Very different from a hotel, Fitzgerald's Irish Bed & Breakfast was ranked fourth in the U.S. and Canada for best interior design and decor. Fitzgerald's offers four guest rooms, each with private bath. Come and admire the stirring architecture of the common areas indoors or lounge on the sun porch while enjoying the park-like yard to watch the migrating birds. Near Cleveland, Mentor and Kirtland, in Lake County. Just a short drive away are some of the most-visited trails and beaches in the Great Lakes region, along with opportunities to sail, swim, cross-country ski, golf, shop and more. Fitzgerald's Irish Bed & Breakfast is located 30 miles east of Cleveland in Painesville's historic district and is easily accessible from Route 2 or I-90. Our guests return again and again for the hospitality and fabulous breakfasts!

Outstanding Stay

5 on April 01, 2018

We were in town for a swim meet. We were gone well before breakfast was made, which was ok. The owners were so friendly and the facility was so clean and cozy. We truly felt like we were at home. I will definitely stay there again. I have already talked about a getaway with my husband.

Best experience ever!

Excellent hosts and wonderful experience. Fitzgerald’s Irish BnB is top notch. We had a wonderful weekend. Toured area and saw President Garfield’s home, Mentor Headlands and Holden Arboretum. 5star experience!

First stay at B & B and won't be our last now

Very welcoming family owned bed and breakfast. Stayed in the Bushmills room and it wowed my very Irish girlfriend. Most relaxing stay I've had anywhere and you can come and go as you please. We will be back without hesitation.

A beautiful home with welcoming hosts.

We had a lovely evening in this charming home. It is a short walk to a delightful restaurant (Bistro 70) where you get free dessert if you mention you are staying at Fitzgerald's. Tom has wonderful stories of Ireland and their home is beautifully decorated with mementos of their many trips.

For a little more money than a 4 star hotel, why not stay in luxury and safety with great people? This is how you were meant travel and celebrate special occasions. My wife and I really loved the warmth of the proprietors and staff and surely will be back to enjoy all the rooms and good company. Steve and Mary

This Bed and Breakfast is a gem!!

My friends and I getaway once a year. We were pleasantly surprised with hospitality and charm. We had privacy when necessary and the company of the owners when needed.

Amazing B&B

Fitzgerald’s is hands down the best B&B I’ve ever stayed at. Debra and Tom not only make you feel like you’re visiting family, the house makes you feel like you’ve stepped into another world completely. Very highly recommended.

Amazing return stay!

My husband and I were so excited to return to Fitzgerald's! We first stayed for a few nights in December of 2015. Tom and Debra are SO welcoming, and amazing hosts. We always arrive a bit late (9 pm), due to traveling from the west coast, and they could not be kinder about this. We were able to stay for 5 nights this time, and I hated to leave. The house is incredible, so much attention to detail. We LOVE the Bushmill's room, on the third floor. Everything is SPOTLESS, throughout the house.

You will enjoy your stay here!

We stayed in the Mayo room. The room was spacious and spotless, candies on the pillow, treats on a side table, sodas and wine in the fridge! The bathroom was very clean. The bed was very comfortable. There was even an extra extended "closet", containing fridge, shelves, and room for suitcases and clothes on hangers. We received the continental breakfast, fresh fruit, delicious scones, coffee, cereal, and assorted breakfast bars. There is a full breakfast if you are there for the weekend, though. The Tudor-style house is beautiful and comfortable. Included with the dining room and living room is a sitting room, indoor porch,and a nice outdoor sitting area. They even have a pair of very friendly ducks that greet you if you cross their path! Our hosts were very friendly and helpful! We were not the easiest tenants,as our plans continually changed due to complications in our trip. But they accommodated us anyway! I already plan to return the next time I am out that way. This is a fun place to B and B!

Fantastic Place! Definitely recommend! Inn keeper Tom attended to all our needs. Beautiful and clean..
