Damage Deposit, Breakages & Cleaning
A refundable damage deposit of €100 per cottage must be paid on arrival. The deposit will be refunded at the end of your stay, after your cottage has been inspected, and the management is satisfied that the terms and conditions of rental have been complied with. Final cleaning is included in the rental charge, but failure to leave the cottage in a clean and tidy condition, may result in the loss of the security deposit. In particular, guests are expected to clean up spillages of any kind in any room as they occur, and all kitchen dishes, pans and utensils must be thoroughly washed when they are used. A full cleaning kit is provided, in addition to a sweeping brush, mop & bucket, vacuum cleaner, and dishwasher. Breakages must be paid for, and guests are expected to notify the management about any breakages.
Electricity and Heating
The heating and hot water is operated by an oil burner. Oil and electricity meters are read upon arrival and again upon departure day in order that usage can be calculated on departure day. Guests are charged for oil and electricity used, based on meter readings. This charge is payable prior to departure.
Failure to notify the management of a late arrival may result in your reservation being cancelled.
The management shall not be liable for any damage, loss or personal injury that may be sustained by any of the guests during their reserved stay.
Pets, other than guide dogs, are not permitted in Kilmore Cottage, Teach Eile or Teach a Trí.
Right to Decline
The management reserve the right to refuse, alter or cancel a booking, even after receipt of the final payment. In addition, we shall be relieved of all liability should Kilmore Cottage, Teach Eile or Teach a Trí not be available due to circumstances beyond our control. In such an instance, we will attempt to find alternative similar accommodation for the guest(s), or a full refund will be offered. However, no refund or liability will apply to a situation where a guest is requested to vacate, or leaves of their own accord, prior to the expiration of their booking.
Note: “The management” when referred to in the above Terms & Conditions shall be taken to mean either John Cousins or Helen Cousins or a nominated caretaker. A caretaker will be nominated only in the absence of both John and Helen Cousins, in which event contact details for the caretaker will be notified to guests.
