****** Update 30-04-2021 ***********
On 29-04-2021, the Irish government announced that holiday accommodation (Hotels, B&B’s, Guesthouses, Self-catering) in Ireland can reopen from 2nd June 2021. We will not be accepting any non-essential bookings in advance of June 2nd. Our team will be in contact with guests with arrival dates from 30 April to June 1st in order of arrival date to discuss their options. We are asking that guests email us to firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or requests. We are working hard to process date amendments and credit vouchers under our Covid Amendment Policy as quickly as possible.
Non-Tourist Related Bookings
We aim to provide assistance where possible to accommodate non-social and non-tourist related bookings within Ireland, whilst also ensuring that we comply with current Government guidelines.
We will continue to process bookings through our reservation desk for non-social and non-tourist reasons, to support the provision of essential services.
All bookings placed from other guests, are most welcome – but must have an arrival date after official restrictions have finished.

Amendments and Cancellation Policy during Covid-19
We appreciate and recognise the uncertainty that Covid-19 may be causing our customers. The situation is changing regularly, and we will continue to follow guidance from the authorities in Ireland.
We are experiencing a large volume of enquiries, so we ask you to please bear with us in these challenging times. Please see the FAQ section below, as you may find the answer to your question there.
We have a Special COVID-19 Amendment Policy in place and it is constantly being reviewed and updated in line with official guidelines and government directives.
Currently, the following options apply for amendment and cancellation requests.
Where the Irish government introduce official travel restrictions in Ireland, which would mean that a guest could not travel to stay in their holiday accommodation, our Special Covid 19 Amendment Policy will apply.
Our Special COVID-19 Amendment Policy will cover the following:
- All bookings that become affected by OFFICIAL localised/county/national travel restrictions within Ireland, which would restrict the guest travelling to the holiday accommodation.
Any bookings outside of the special amendment policy fall under our standard booking terms and conditions.
