Our Service

Through the website, we provide an online platform through which hotels and guesthouses in Ireland can advertise their rooms for reservation, and through which visitors to the website can make such reservations. By making a reservation through IrelandHotels.com, you enter into a direct (legally binding) contractual relationship with the hotel or guesthouse at which you book. From the point at which you make your reservation, we act solely as an intermediary between you and the hotel, transmitting the details of your reservation to the relevant hotel and sending you a confirmation email for and on behalf of the hotel.

Prices & Content

The hotel information, star ratings and quality of accommodation are compiled from information provided directly by the hotels. As such, the hotels are given access to an extranet through which they are fully responsible for updating all rates, availability and other information which is displayed on our website. We publish such information in good faith, based on the information provided. We take reasonable care to ensure that the content of all areas of the website, including all hotel information, are accurate and up-to-date. We are not responsible for inaccuracies, errors, omissions or misleading information contained therein. Our website does not constitute and should not be regarded as a recommendation or endorsement of any hotel or guesthouse.

Irelandhotels.com and its partner properties will endeavour to provide you with the Best Available room in the same room category on the dates that you have booked. Please note that the best available room relates to the room type booked and does not mean you will receive an upgrade to a higher room category.
The prices on our website are highly competitive and we aim to offer you the best available rates.

Deposit, Payment & Security

Standard Reservations:
The price you see on the website is the full price that you will pay. We will charge you a booking deposit when you make your reservation. The balance of the charge should be paid directly by you to the hotel or guesthouse at the beginning or end of your stay (depending on the hotel policy).

Gift Card Reservations:
The price you see on the website is the full price that you will pay. The full value of the reservation will be deducted from the Gift Card therefore no balance is required at the hotel or guesthouses. Please review our Gift Card Terms for further information.

Our partner hotels and guesthouses require your credit card details in order to guarantee your reservation. For the sake of clarity, this includes bookings where an Irelandhotels.com Gift Card has been used to make a reservation.

For certain offers & rates, please note that accommodation providers may require that full payment is made upfront therefore your credit card may be pre-authorised or charged (sometimes without any option for refund) upon making the reservation. Please check the room details thoroughly for any such conditions prior to making your reservation.
We will send your credit card information directly to the hotel at which your booking is made and they pre-authorise your credit card ahead of your arrival. In order to safeguard and encrypt your credit card information when in transit to us, we use the “Secure Socket Layer (SSL)” technology for our services.

Cancellations & Refunds

By making a reservation with an accommodation provider, you accept and agree to the relevant cancellation and no-show policy of that accommodation provider, and to any additional terms and conditions of the accommodation provider that may apply to your reservation or during your stay, including for services rendered and/or products offered by the accommodation provider. Please check the room details thoroughly for any such conditions prior to making your reservation.
