Terms & Conditions
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
We recommend that you book as early as possible especially if you are planning your holiday for the busy months of July and August. Ireland has numerous bank holidays during the summer season and these tend to be booked up at an early stage.
You must be aged 21 years or more to book a holiday with Lahinch Property Management, and there must be at least one adult (aged 21 years or more) travelling on any one booking.
A non-refundable booking deposit of 25% of the booking cost, is required to confirm accommodation (larger properties – the booking deposit may be higher). Confirmation will be issued to you upon receipt of deposit.
Booking balance is due 30 days prior to arrival. If the booking has been made through our website or using www.booking.com, the balance will be taken automatically from the same card that was used at the time of booking. If you wish to make your payment with a different card, please contact us prior to 30 days before arrival. If the booking is made through AirBnB, the total sum may be taken at the time of booking, depending on the AirBnB settings. AirBnB must be contacted in regards to payments made to their company. Directions and instructions regarding arrival at the property will be issued on receipt of balance of payment.

A minimum €200 security deposit must be paid on arrival This deposit may be higher, depending on the property - and may be held up to 7 days after check-out. This will be returned to you provided that the Supervisor is satisfied that the terms and conditions have been complied with. Cost of repairs to property as a result of negligence will be deducted from security deposit, with an additional charge where the deposit is insufficient.
