rooms and have plenty of space around them.

- There are 2 exceptions to the above pricing:
1) If you choose to log an enquiry through a 3rd party booking service or to make a booking through them, we
reserve the right to pass on to you whatever level of commission they charge us.
2) Weekly rate may not be available for the weekend of the St Pat's races, Easter and/or School Holidays - a minimum number of nights stay may also apply
or/and higher prices.
- Dealing direct with us via email or the telephone is by far the best way.
Please be aware that bookings made through a 3rd party involves us having to pay between 10% to 25% commission:
resulting in higher prices. It also takes away our direct control of
bookings and therefore we reserve the right to reject any such booking.
NB: Do not take any notice of our availability that you see on "online booking sites". For periods of high demand or problematic booking events, we block out those dates. We do this to prevent oddball bookings occuring, such as all of our cottages being booked out for one night eg. 25th December. Bookings like that denying availability to those who are looking for multi-night holiday bookings. Beside, we really don't want to have to clean all 3 cottages on Boxing Day etc!
- We much prefer dealing with our customers directly.

Behind the scenes.......
If you have ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes,
then these incidents give some
Booking mulitple cottages = group booking.
A word of advice - we have been in the accommodation industry since 1984, so have very much
"been there done that".
It is our experience that trying to book accommodation for other people,
even when they are well known to you or close relatives is difficult at
best and can easily turn problematical.
Their expectations are invariably going to be different to yours.
Arrival/departure dates, price, location, etc may not be to their liking.
If THEY make the booking for THEIR cottage, it gives us the
opportunity to discuss their requirements and clarify what those are.
Likewise, their budget may not align with yours and thus there are no awkward moments over
who pays the balance owing and any imbalance eg, for an extra person or 2 in a cottage etc.
We have even seen where someone brought the neighbours kids
along: without bothering to mention it to the organiser. Which meant they had to be
shared around to each get a bed!
There is also the issue of paying a deposit: if they fail to do so or fail to
cancel then it is not your problem.
Most accommodation is for holiday purposes, there is no need to complicate it and have
it turn into a hassle.
We do take group bookings, but we want you to have read the above paragraphs first.
