The most common questions we have been asked over the years are all about bed size.

The following bed size information is to clear up the confusion caused by the different names that are used to refer to different bed sizes.  Much of the confusion is caused by European and American sizes and the terminology that is very different from that of our own.

This information is accurate for the standard Ireland & UK bed sizes.

75cm x 190cm or 2'6" x 6'3
